Yahoo! Mail Beta – Cool Hack to get started

25 Apr

Via Lifehacker comes this great hack on how to get Yahoo! Mail Beta without an invite.

Admittedly, it's unofficial as of now, but having tested it, I can confirm that this works!

The steps are as follows:

  • Log in to Yahoo Mail
  • Click Options
  • select Account information from the left panel
  • go to Member Information, click on Edit
  • In General Preferences, Preferred Content, you'll see your region in blue hyperlink (e.g. Yahoo! U.S.)
  • Click on your region
  • Change the setting to either Yahoo UK, France or Germany
  • click Finished
  • You might see a TOS page.
  • Click on "I Accept"
  • Click on "Finished"
  • Go to Yahoo mail
  • you'll see a page that says "It's the New Yahoo! Mail Beta… and you're invited."
  • click on "Try Beta Now".
  • Log off
  • Log on again
  • Accept the TOS again

And voila! you are on!!

Happy mailing!
