Yahoo! offers a shortcut to Yahoo! Mail from any search field.

The Easter Egg As a Shortcut

Have you noticed every page on Yahoo! has a little search box in the top right corner? (Except for the Yahoo! home page, of course, which has the big search box positioned prominently in the middle.)

You can use the Search the web box to search the web. But you can also use it to go to your Yahoo! Mail Inbox quickly if you know the magic word.

Go to Yahoo! Mail Directly From Any Yahoo! Search Box

To go to Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic directly from any Yahoo! search box:

  1. Type "mail!" in the Yahoo! search box.
  2. Hit Enter.

That is all there is to it. Yahoo! will take you straight to your Yahoo! Mail, no further questions asked. Other keywords to try include "my!", "news!", "calendar!", "movies!" and "games!".
