  4. Changes suck

    This new mail theme sucks! The features behind the scenes should remain the same, no matter what version you are running. I had to upgrade to get "Filters" feature available. You give themes for color, but not enough options. So it looks sloppy. If I use IE, I get constantly popping-up script error.

  5. How can Yahoo improve just about everthing? Try removing as much blue light coming through our screens. It , blue light, is highly damaging

    Blue light, though highly visible, is highly harmful to human vision. Look it up and make the change.

  6. Animated backgrounds.

    Most people I know would rather have real photo's than clip art guys. Now if you want to really sell this "new format", you could try animated backgrounds! Yeah, that's the ticket! Animation. Try being innovative for a change.

  8. Theme in Notepad - Not Available As a Mail Theme

    I love the blueish-greenish background color that seems to be automatic in the 'Yahoo Notepad' and would like to use it as well in Yahoo Mail but I can't find it or anything like it as a 'theme' in mail. Am I missing something?

    A Yahoo representative responded:

    I just gone through the issue and the note pad theme which is coming is in Classic mail version but the account is in New mail version.

    Since you have a Yahoo account through one of our network partners, you cannot access the Classic Mail any more. I can see how that'd…

  12. the 'width of the ad section should be less wide; it takes up too much space and is only annoying!

    so everyone agrees the add space is only annoying your followers--
    companies need to wake-up and stop annoying their clients with their invasive adds- terrance Sydney: who agrees?

  14. Words on Email should be as Dark as Home Page

    The words on Mail are lighter than used on the Home Page. Changing the colors has no effect.

  17. Too easy to open emails accidentally while ticking to select them for deletion

    If you aren't 100% accurate ticking the box, it's far too easy to accidentally end up opening an email, rather than selecting it. The box needs a much bigger "catch zone" for mouse clicks
