Yahoo released new email domains last week, "Ymail" and " Rocketmail".

The idea behind these two new domains is that people would have the opportunity of owning a unique and easy email address, not one that has fumbled letters and numbers. Yahoo is hoping that with the release of these new domains it would help boost its email growth.

With 266 million user accounts worldwide as of April 2008,
Yahoo is the e-mail market leader, according to the latest data from
research firm comScore Inc. Microsoft Corp. is a close second at 264
million users. But e-mail accounts at both Yahoo and Microsoft have
been growing at a slower pace than Google’s Gmail, which has added more
than 30 million users in the past year.
