Yahoo Mail Adds SMS Functions
Yahoo! has taken its popular email service officially out of beta and added the capability for users to send and receive SMS text messages through the service for free. The markets included in the new service are the U.S., Canada, India and the Philippines. This is a nice way to send or respond to text messages without having to use your phone - send and receive text messages from your desktop or, send a text message from your phone to another user's desktop.
What's more,Yahoo Mail also includes the ability to send and receive instant messages to those who are logged into Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Mail or Windows Live Messenger. This is truly a coming together of communication channels and a great opportunity to spread marketing campaings (both SMS and email) across an even wider path.
