Yahoo mail is getting a face-lift. The Web portal company says it's made available a new beta version of its online e-mail service Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo says the new iteration of its free e-mail service boasts more desktop application-like features, such as drag-and-drop organization. It also offers an integrated calendar and maps, message preview, an integrated RSS reader and new search capabilities, among other features.

The beta version works on Internet Explorer browsers on Windows computers, and on Firefox browsers on both Windows and Mac computers.

When users sign in or create a new account, they will have the option to try the new interface, and switch between old and new.
