Continuing in its quest to become a leaner and more focused operation, Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO  ) is axing a number of its less popular services. As detailed in a post on the official company blog by Jay Rossiter, executive vice president of platforms, the Internet giant will eliminate Yahoo! Deals, Upcoming, SMS Alerts, and Kids sites, in addition to older versions of its Mail service.

Online isn't the only arena that will see eliminations. The firm's J2ME versions of its mobile apps for Mail and Messenger will also be discontinued, although those programs will still be available on other popular mobile platforms.

All of these cancellations will take effect as of April 30 except for the older versions of Mail, which will begin to be eliminated the week of June 3.
