Marissa Mayer, Yahoo's ex-CEO, says she's looking 'forward to using Gmail again'

Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer resigned on Tuesday after running the company for about five years. 

She resigned because Verizon’s $US4.48 billion acquisition of Yahoo has officially closed, netting her a $US23 million payout. 

At a conference in London, Mayer said one of the things she was looking forward to in her post-Yahoo life was using Gmail again.

Presumably, as CEO of Yahoo, she had to use Yahoo Mail. 

Before joining Yahoo, Mayer worked at Google for over 13 years, leading several products such as search and Gmail.
