  2. The search bar is too big

    The search bar is too big, occupying space that could be better used to navigation and visualizations of the e-mails.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

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

  20. 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…
