No kidding: You can now access Gmail right within Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo Mail on the app and desktop will now let you manage most of your email accounts with support for multiple mailboxes. The Yahoo Mail team announced that you can now manage your Gmail from the friendly confines of Yahoo Mail, to go along with previous support for Outlook, Hotmail and AOL Mail (you know, the other email services that nobody uses unless it’s for Craigslist purposes): When we launched the redesigned Yahoo Mail app in October, users called it “slick,” “speedy” and “elegant.” The app now has a four-star rating in both the Apple App Store and Google Play. One feature that got very popular is the ability of Inbox app to sync your inbox messages irrespective of the platform you are on meaning it can sync messages even from Yahoo or Outlook even though it is Google owned app.

We might have one for personal, one for work, and there are even some who have email accounts that they use just to sign up for services so their work and personal emails don’t get spammed by newsletters and whatnot. Shiv Shankar, Senior Product Manager at Yahoo said: “Search, smart contacts, rich compose [multimedia attachments to mail] features and Yahoo Account Key for password-free sign-in are now available with Gmail. The company hopes that with this addition, it can draw more users to its email service so that they can experience Yahoo’s search capabilities within Mail and discover that it just works. That being said if you’re the type that uses multiple services, you might be interested to learn that Yahoo has announced that Yahoo Mail users will now be able to manage their Gmail accounts via their platform. Moreover, users can access entire history of emails as well. “We even sync every single action across all your mailboxes, like moving emails between folders, deleting emails, marking them as read, etc.

After adding your Gmail account, you can already view, manage, and search your Gmail mailboxes alongside whatever mailboxes you may have from, Hotmail, AOL, and, of course, Yahoo Mail. But instead of just being a place for you to communicate with your family, friends, coworkers, and partners, Yahoo Mail wants to be perceived as being a universal database containing user information — your place to keep track of gifts you’re giving, people you care about, trips you’re taking, and more.

When you compose an email, you can send from any account you’ve connected (i.e. personal, school, work, etc.) even though you’re using Yahoo Mail,” says the company in a blog post. That’s something Yahoo’s senior vice president of communications products Jeff Bonforte said he’s unapologetic about. “It’s the only database universally owned by the user,” he told VentureBeat. Thanks to Yahoo Mail’s new smarts, the app won’t just fetch the most recent 200 messages after users try to add it — it’s actually able to access your entire Gmail archive; attachments included.

In a nutshell, with IMAP support, if you want to consolidate your emails across various addresses, Yahoo can be the central repository of your photos, joke threads, ecommerce receipts, emails, and more. It believes that it can offer consumers a better experience in looking at all your emails in an organized way, including not just the actual message, but referencing attachments and contacts that the system intelligently knows you need to include.

According to reports, the company had planned a complete spinoff of its holdings in Alibaba, and CEO Marissa Mayer was supposed to complete the process by January, but it has been cancelled. The latest update to Yahoo Mail also delivers performance improvements, particularly in relation to push notifications, as opening messages from push notifications is now quicker and more reliable. With its latest update, which serves as a follow-up to its major overhaul in October, Yahoo Mail has become an even better email app that not only supports its eponymous service but other email providers as well.

It’s definitely something that you should consider if you’re on the lookout for an excellent email app for iOS, especially in light of the imminent demise of Mailbox. Earlier this year, Yahoo shut down its Maps service along with Yahoo Movies, Yahoo Autos and Yahoo TV in Spain, and Yahoo Music in France and Canada.
