  1. I don`t like the bright screen aka white. So while your changing the whole look of yahoo mail add way`s of customizing the background

    Add background themes in the settings so to custom the look of your email this version is boring

    • The new app is fast and easy but....

      the thing I dislike is that it begins in 35mb and then it grows to 344mb, that's insane; why does it do that? is there a way you can control that? that I can control that? if so, please fix that bug farm

      • Restore sync to Yahoo Contacts

        With Yahoo Mail for Android 5.0.5, I can no longer sync my Yahoo mail contacts to my phone. My Android contacts app says I can sync to something called "Yahoo Smart Contacts", but that has none of my mail contacts in it and there is no way to access Yahoo Smart Contacts. The help is useless because it doesn't indicate how to download or launch Smart Contacts so I can put anything in. I don't understand why there is a Smart Contacts app that doesn't even have any of my contacts from e-mail in it.

        • STRONGLY Hate the New Version (Nov 2015) for Android

          1) Must include option to revert to "classic" look
          2) Status bar notification does not work on LG4 and yes I can adjusted all of the proper notification settings
          3) Each email takes up too much screen space. Needs option of not showing first line of email
          4) For newbies, too many push options are defaulted on. For regular users, option set in old version do not carry over.
          5) Yahoo, this will push more people to Gmail.

          • SUCKS, go back please to old one can't do anything with with this one and you have to opne the email to see what's in it. No themes,

            Please go back this is to bug, and white background you can't read the emails unless you open them witch will cause getting viruses. Before you can read and see if you want to open it. You can change themes, colors, nothing. Your setting is empty.
            The whole set up is stupid.
            Your last version was brilliant I was so happy with it, now I feel like a idiot tryimg to figure this **** out. Very dissapointing after 17 years with you guys this is the worst of the worst.

                    Now every time I send an email I have to manually change my 'from' address. In previous versions of the app I could set the default 'from' address.

                      ZERO

                      This app just gets worse every upgrade.
                      I hate the new interface.

                      I can't find contacts.

                      I can't format emails as before.

                      Why is there no 'new messsage' notification?
                      I avoid checking email. Theres always too much spam that is also difficult to manage with the filters. Marking unwanted messages as spam seems to have no effect.
                      It would be helpful to have a clear visual notification on the onscreen app icons

                      Gmail, Facebook and What's App apps show a clear visual notification - the number of new messages appears in a bright red dot on top of the…

                      • Where is my contact list?

                        When forwarding email or composing new mail I cannot get my entire list of contacts to pop up so I can check the boxes of who I'd like to send to. Instead I must rely on my memory to think of everyone to be included in a group email. Please fix this!

                            • takes crazy much of storage on internal memory card

                              Ok guys. I'm one of millions who are not happy about the new layout of the android app, but I'm trying hard to use it. However, there is one thing which prevents me from being able to use the app. After installing,it starts low on storage. Application itself takes only like 20 MB. Then day by day it saves more and more application data. After 3-4 days it hits like 600MB of data storage. That's when me phone starts showing an error about running out of storage on internal memory card. It goes on until theres no megabyte of memory…

                                  • I think it's a shame you've made the app just look more like Gmail

                                    I think it looked much cleaner and better before this new look. Really dislike it. Might as well just go and use my Gmail account which I was avoiding because I didn't like how it looked! What I really miss is the little 'replied to' icon in the inbox list. Now I can't remember who I've replied to without checking my sent folder!

                                    Hate it.

                                    • Massive data use

                                      Can't find any other way if contacting you unfortunately. I am distressed by the massive data charges over the past 24 hours. 2.77GB was chewed up by the Android App. This seems to have affected a few customers. I had to uninstall the app which I no longer found useful anyhow since the new update. Help!

                                        • Too many news updates!

                                          I get 'breaking news updates' more than emails, and it drives me crazy. I want this app to get to my emails. I really don't care to follow the news, yet I can't find a way to stop getting notifications from it! Please tell me how to stop getting all these obnoxious updates!
