Advantages of Yahoo Ads
Email Like a Pro:
With Yahoo's Standard Yahoo Mail service, you can send email, receive it, manage contacts and maintain a calendar. All Yahoo mail is 100 percent encrypted and users have 1TB of storage to hold emails and files. You can also sign up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail. You'll pay a monthly fee for it, but unlike Standard Yahoo Mail, Ad Free Mail doesn't display ads, and Yahoo never deactivates it for nonuse. If regular email messages don't seem personal enough, use the built-in Yahoo Web Messenger to chat with others right from your email page. Some competing email services do not provide this type of messaging capability.
Explore Advanced Communication Methods:
Although you can send instant messages from your Yahoo Mail page, you have the option to install Yahoo Messenger on your computer and mobile phone. With it, you can chat with others via voice and webcam. Messenger supports SMS and IM, and you can share photos and large files with chat partners. You can also use the program to make PC-to-phone calls. Some other services such as Skype and Google have similar software, but Yahoo's service is handy for communicating with other Yahoo members.

One of the advantages of using Yahoo Search over some smaller search engines is Bing. At the time of publication, Yahoo uses Microsoft's Bing search technology to perform searches.
