Yahoo Mail to get ‘Minty’ freshen-up


Yahoo is planning to unveil this fall yet another revamp to its Yahoo Mail service to address a drop in users and improve the product’s performance overseas where Net connections tend to be slower.

As part of a project code-named “Minty,” Yahoo plans to juice up the performance of its Web-based e-mail service and bring its look in line with simpler iPad and Android versions of the Mail product, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.
