  2. I don't care for the new format. It is very faded and hard to see. Too white and light gray.

    The old format was easier to see. This new one is too faded. Gray on white just doesn't work.

  4. The old format was easier to read

    1. It's very slow. Moving the cursor back to correct an error is even slower.
    2. Reverse type (white on a color) is never a good idea, as each screen user gets a slightly different result.
    3. Sans-serif reverse type, using a thin font makes the whole page much harder to read.
    4. There seems to have been little user-testing. I know, I know, if it's free, the users become the beta test. This isn't working for me.

  5. Very poor font choice

    Very poor font choice.
    1. Does not support latin extended. Those characters are shown with a substitute font
    2. Difficult to read - the thin font
    3. The new messages are shown with thin characters and read ones with bold characters. I find this strange
    4. No control over fonts in themes and background.

  6. THEMES

    These new themes are not attractive!!! There should be theme that are stimulating and inspirational. Themes like nature, geography, landscape, astronomy and other subjects.

  12. Background Settings

    You should allow people to customize their own background, by uploading pictures. Thank you for allowing me to share my opinion.

  13. I prefer a light background with BLACK ink.

    My 62 year old eyes don't want to deal with white font. Please have at least 1 choice with a black font.

  15. Unify user interfaces!!!

    I've been using computers for four decades and I'm still flabbergasted seeing the miserable mix match of user interfaces and features spread out across various access points... mostly different from one service to another. It's amazing we can make so much money on so little and still not figure out how to let people arrange their own own content instead of dictating where engineers and those who decide how things should be. I guess they never got the memo we're all different?

  18. Need to have black text

    In order for me to use the new Mail format, I would need to have the option of having black text with a colored background. Right now, the only option is white text on a colored background. Until that is changed, I won't be using the latest version. I am going to go back to using the Classic Mail.

  19. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!

  20. I don't want to switch to bare-bones "classic mail", I just want the same new mail format I had until yesterday.

    The huge space on the right with unnecessary info about the sender... the choice between a blinding white background or a ridiculously dark one... switching back doesn't take me to the "previous version", it takes me to an unpleasant basic version and doesn't solve the problem. I don't think my eyes can use this new format, sorry and hope you consider the option of keeping it how it was until now.
