  1. Background Settings

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

  2. Need lighter background options/not white

    I need more background options that have lighter colors. The colors are too dark under "dark" and the only option for light is to have a white screen in the center, which is taxing on the eyes. Pastels people!!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. New mail format is awful

    New mail format is awful. It needs more contrast. The line work should be darker, it blends in WAY TOO MUCH with the white background.

  7. 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?

  9. small space for email

    Space for actual emails is reduced enormously. Why yahoo ribbon takes up so much more space. The email list is squeezed from the top and from the side into 30% of the area.

  12. hard to read

    Why did you close all "the hard to read" issues.

    1) Content in left rail, hard to read
    2) List of email in main area, hard to read
    3) Navigation once in an incoming email, replies and the like, hard to read
    Really, are you trying to drive people to GMail?

  15. Colors

    Please put in some light, soft colors. What you have now is too intense and dark. Can't you put in a variety and please everyone? At one time, you had more choices. Please give us more options.

  18. Hard to tell between read and unread emails

    Really hard to distinguish read and unread emails. A simple dot next to it and making it "bold" is not sufficient to easily tell them apart.
