Yahoo mail is good but if you really want to see "pushing the envelope" or
some other $h1t us corporate term then take a look at zimbra. They have a
live demo which is jaw dropping.....
Amazing what a bit of venture capital can achieve... I personally am pleased
to have a AJAX search box working courtesy of scriptaculous.

Yahoo! Mail is supposed to be a good example, but I would probably have
stuck with Gmail and Flickr for my examples. In fact a lot of Google stuff
with AJAX is nice, like Google Reader, Google Calendar, etc.
The problem with AJAX is that a lot of sites seem to thing it is an end to a
means, rather than a means to an end. The best AJAX is that which you don't
really notice, but makes you think "hey, that's cool". In my opinion
