After Yahoo! has decided to remove the official Yahoo Mail app from the Windows Store, probably because it didn’t like too much Windows 8 nor Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. But the company has finally changed its mind and the app is once again available for a free download.

The app comes with support for desktop and lock screen notifications, dynamic Live Tile in the Start menu. However, what you should know is that this is just a web wrapper for Yahoo! webmail and it’s not an official app, which is quite sad for Windows 10 Yahoo users. Here are the main features of the app:

  • Get real-time notifications so you never miss a message
  • View the Live Tile in the Start menu for a quick status on your inbox
  • See the number of new messages on your lock screen
  • Organize your mail with folders, Smart Views, and various options to sort your message list
  • Import contacts from Facebook, Gmail, Outlook or AOL to make it easy to connect to the people you care about
  • Multitask in your inbox with Tabs: compose, search and read messages all at once, without opening new windows
  • Send beautiful emails with Yahoo Mail Stationery, designed by Paperless Post
  • Find the message, document or photo you’re looking for with Yahoo Mail’s best in class search feature
  • Personalize your inbox with over 20+ vibrant themes to choose from

Despite the fact that it isn’t a native app, Yahoo! Mail for Windows 10 has currently a 4.2 rating from a number of 142 ratings. It comes with a size of 15.19 MB and should be used only on PCs, according to its description.
