Yahoo Mail Notifier - Conflicting messages imply a broken system...

Yahoo recently added some fancy new bells and whistles to its homepage, meant to notify users of new email, IMs, and other info at a glance. However, it's not quite ready for primetime - and having the at-a-glance notifier in the upper left report "2 new" emails only to find that the roll-over expansion claims "no messages" is not a good way to inspire confidence in the system!

Email has become something most of us depend on in the same way as running water, electricity, and internet access itself - and like those, losing it (or even your faith in it) comes with a horrible, crippling, even sickening feeling. Sure, Yahoo, add bells and whistles if you want - but not at the expense of the user's confidence in the system!
