    The initiative could mean new ways to deal with mail messages
    Yahoo is letting web programmers get their hands on the core code for its e-mail program.
    By opening up the code Yahoo hopes to help create a series of innovative ways to deal with e-mail messages.

    Eventually it said there could be "tens of thousands" of add-ons and extras for the e-mail reader.

    Yahoo is only the latest of the big web companies to open up their main services to the wider code developing community.

    This is fantastic news and we all end up winning in the process. I think they may be taking lead from the few games such as Operation Flashpoint, rFactor, etc., that are community driven, extremely vibrant and offer endless amounts of mods.
