The Gmail web mention @ option is live, for users with the new interface of the web mail service. This allows you to quickly add a contact’s email address within the body of the mail.
The first thing you need to do to use this @mention feature, is to enable the new Gmail version in your web browser. How do you do that? It is very simple, login to your Google account, and click on the cog button in the top right corner. You will see a “Try the new Gmail” option.

Microsoft’s Gabe Aul had tweeted earlier this week, that in fact it was available for all users, but was pointed out by other users that it wasn’t the case. Perhaps it was a teaser that [...]
Yahoo has improved its Mail service, by adding new search features.
The company’s Senior VP for Communications Products, Jeff Bonforte, highlighted the importance of Mail search in an interview the New York Times.
He said that emails contain important data such as photos, conversations, docs, etc, and they add up to form a great memory service. But because Mail search is broken you often end up viewing a huge list of emails, which contain the keyword you searched for, making navigation through the endless list of mails, a rather cumbersome task.
