  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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! :)

  7. 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.

  9. custom wallpapers for the background

    Would be so much better if we could custom our own backgrounds! I mean even Gmail did that!

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. wave mouse over account icon

    Used to be able to wave mouse over account icon and the account email address would pop up. That's not working today.
