If you wake up late for the Internet era or just want to create a new email account, its difficult to get the email address of your choice. All of them are already occupied and you end up adding numbers, birth years or something or the other. Well Yahoo realized this trend and is now offering two more domains in its email addresses to help users get the email address they want.

The two domains are @ymail.com and @rocketmail.com. Yahoo has about 260 million registered users so you can very well imagine trying to register an address "yourname@yahoo.com". However now you have a chance to get one, needless to mention that you should register it fast or else you will miss the train again!

Yahoo already has the maximum email users, and this move is surely going to bring them some more. I am going to try for mine just now! But before that I felt that my readers should also get the news early and register theirs as well!

Click and off you go to mail.yahoo.com

Ever uploaded a large files as attachment using gmail, yahoo or hotmail only to find that oops they dont support LARGE attachments..


Want to send large files to your friends? Well there are a couple of services that exist presently. You could use yousendit, box.net, esnips and other similar services. But this whole concept of podmailing is what sets podmailing.com apart from other services.

Here is a tryst with "podmailing": You specify your email id, recipient(s) email ids, upload your file to the podmailing.com servers and while the file is being uploaded the recipients will each receive an email saying that they have a large file sent by you. Huh.. So whats new? Hang on.. The fun part starts now, because the recipient now has 3 options to get the files:

  • Using the browser (through http):
    • This requires that the file is completely uploaded to the servers (and its not the kewl way!).
  • Using p2p:
    • What? yes even if the file is not uploaded completely yet still the recipient can virtually pick it off from your machine using peer-to-peer networking. (This requires the podmailing software on either end)
  • Using torrents:
    • Still better option for very large files is the BitTorrent Support. Not only you can have a "swarm" being created (if you have many recipients) but also the file is available for a much longer time than the podmailing.com’s limit of 30 days.
