  1. Allow changes to letter color for low contrast - vision impaired. I prefer dark letters on semi dark background.

  2. Since videos automatically play when my inbox is empty, I exit Yahoo mail. With old mail I gladly kept it active all the time.

    Please provide an easy way to disable automtic video play when the inbox is empty. Thanks.

  4. emoticons *****

    First off, I DESPISE that you FORCED me to change. That is just so BIG BROTHER of you. Second, I have read dozens of complaints regarding everything on the NEW Yahoo and THOUSANDS of people hate it, including me. Its not original in any way, and as my topic header says, the emoticons *****. They are boring, lifeless, and exactly like all of the others out there. Yahoo used to be my favourite email service above ALL OTHERS and now, you are just as lame as the rest of them. Bring back the old Yahoo for those of us who…

  5. Give us more interesting 'theme' options that aren't so dark, when they're on the full or what are currently referred to as dark setting.

    The the themes are sparse and unimaginative. On the 'dark' setting they're too dark and on the medium and light settings the page is too all white. Otherwise, I have no real objection to the change in format.

  7. DECLUTTER THE EMAIL PAGE

    DECLUTTER PLEASE
    Eliminate the useless eg; dotted lines around the emails, the initials in silly circles, the promise that we can return to basic by clicking "more settings" then "more settings" since this is not true. Very frustrated with the format.

  13. frame

    When I am on my laptop the frame on either side of the emails is too wide. Can you make it so that I can scale the width. I searched for emails by sender and the whole left right side blew up under a tab so photos showed but I couldn't read the email subject because it took up so much room. Can you just make them adjustable like adjusting a margin on a word document. That would be helpful.

  16. Why isn't there an option for a non-color page? The options provided are too dark and irritating.

    All I want is a basic page. No cutesy backgrounds, colors, or added bells and whistles. Where's THAT option? And don't point me to the help page, it's just a waste of time. I've been there and our concerns about colors, etc. are not addressed..

  17. Background Settings

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

  20. Put that thing back where it came from or so help me

    You can improve it by putting back view settings to the way they were before. Dark is too dark, light is too light, I liked the faded background that made things easy to see. This is not good, you made it worse. No one likes it so calling it an upgraded version is a joke. I actually pay for pro so please for the love of God just make whatever changes you need to make to aesthetically make it look the same as it was.
