It seems that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is on a mission to restructure Yahoo Mail and beat back Google’s gains.

While Mayer is attempting to turn the Yahoo boat around, Mail is probably one of the best places to start. It may not be as public as the front page, which is also getting an overhaul, but it is the service that people probably spend the most time with.
