  2. I prefer a light background with BLACK ink.

    My 62 year old eyes don't want to deal with white font. Please have at least 1 choice with a black font.

  3. Background Settings

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

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Make the search ribbon at the top of the window smaller (vertically) - why is there so much wasted space around that???

  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. 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.

  13. 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.

  20. 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
