  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Stationery

    It's EASTER and there's no change in your stationery reflecting this time of the Season.

    Your staff should be more attuned to such seasonal changes inclusive of a nice selection.

    Thanks for the past selections with hopes that the future will resonate with up-to-date selections!

  6. Dark background for empty folders..?

    Empty spam folder is white, although I have "dark mode" enabled. This "dark mode" is THE reason for me to use this updated Yahoo mail, it is so much easier for eyes. But when I empty spam folder, background goes all white, which was quite a shock first time! Could you please adjust this to the selected colouring scheme?
    Also, the spam folder does not show "immediately" whether there is spam, like the older version did with the number of new messages in that folder.
    But, basically I like the new Yahoo mail! Usually I don't like major updates in…

  8. I want to see the background picture on my screen without the big white square covering it

    I like the nautical theme but it is always covered by a big white square even if I have no mail - can it just show the theme until I click on inbox?

  10. Need darker checkbox outline and darker lines to separate each email.

    The lines which separate each email are too light grey. They need to be darker to separate each email 'visually' from the next. It also helps when you are using a mouse to 'check' or 'uncheck' the boxes, etc.

  11. on the left side, the background vs text contrast is TERRIBLE!

    Either brighten the background or DARKEN the text. And make the indicator for number of items in a folder BOLD.

    Please allow settings to apply to add on email boxes from other vendors so the colors can be different for each separate mailbox

  16. Make "active" email distinct from the rest in the list

    Why isn't the notice for the email I am currently viewing visually distinct from the rest in the list? If I am reading it in the preview pane, I can't find it in the list when I want to continue.Didn't it use to be a denser color than the background?

  17. Smaller top bar -

    Smaller top bar - No need for the big one. Especially when using it privately in the office, it could be more discrete.

  18. Can you make a "Y" graphic that is optional for top left "YAHOO!" after login?

    I really enjoy the new look of yahoo mail! I am kind of picky so please be patient with me, but I was hoping to share this small idea. The word yahoo is unappealing to my eyes. I think it would be much more alluring to see a simple "Y" symbol or graphic at the top left of the screen instead of the entire word "YAHOO!".Or maybe not have every letter in caps, like a logo tweak that makes the name seem less abrasive.

    Thank you for you consideration and great work! :)

  19. Left side list of folders is now too narrow, hard to see my titles and find the folder I want as easily as before

    Same description as above. Widen the left side frame/column or make it draggable to adjust that frame/column to a wider width.
