  1. Need to have black text

    In order for me to use the new Mail format, I would need to have the option of having black text with a colored background. Right now, the only option is white text on a colored background. Until that is changed, I won't be using the latest version. I am going to go back to using the Classic Mail.

  2. all the backgrounds are too dark and the white background is too bright

    provide some pastel coloured backgrounds which are more restful on the eyes, particularly for more elderly users!

  4. hard to read

    Why did you close all "the hard to read" issues.

    1) Content in left rail, hard to read
    2) List of email in main area, hard to read
    3) Navigation once in an incoming email, replies and the like, hard to read
    Really, are you trying to drive people to GMail?

  8. 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.

  11. Unify user interfaces!!!

    I've been using computers for four decades and I'm still flabbergasted seeing the miserable mix match of user interfaces and features spread out across various access points... mostly different from one service to another. It's amazing we can make so much money on so little and still not figure out how to let people arrange their own own content instead of dictating where engineers and those who decide how things should be. I guess they never got the memo we're all different?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
