Yahoo unveils new e-mail search functions

Yahoo on Tuesday announced the phased rollout of new search functions for the company’s free Web-based e-mail service. New features include the ability to search e-mail header, body, and attachment content; display snippets or short excerpts with highlighted matches on search terms; view thumbnails of all the pictures and documents saved in their e-mail account.

The new search functions will be available Tuesday to a subset of Yahoo e-mail users, with general availability coming within the coming months. The rollout comes after Yahoo announced plans to overhaul its free Web-based e-mail service to make it work more like a desktop e-mail program.
