If you use myEarthLink you already know there is a handy Email Preview widget there that you can use to view the subject lines of recent messages arriving in your Inbox, and you can click them to go straight to that message in Web Mail. Well now we're going to do the same thing from our end, and allow you to view current news headlines in Web Mail, and you'll be able to click them to go straight to that news channel in your myEarthLink pages. All headlines are linked directly to the full story, which will open in a new window when clicked and not interrupt your Web Mail session.
The News Preview is completely optional, and there's a handy link on the upper right that allows you to choose whether you want to view the news headlines first, or your Inbox list first when you log in to Web Mail. The new Preference setting is shown below.
A new "News Headlines" link on the left also allows you to bring this view up in Web Mail any time you want to check it. The news feeds are updated every few minutes 24/7 and are always current.
This feature should debut in about 3 weeks. In this first release of the feature you won't yet be able to customize the selection of headline sources and we've chosen the two most popular ones. In a future release we plan to add some options to allow you to choose from among a variety of news categories to be displayed.
