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

  2. 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?

  6. New mail format is awful

    New mail format is awful. It needs more contrast. The line work should be darker, it blends in WAY TOO MUCH with the white background.

  8. Improve Themes. Currently only 4 photos to choose from.

    There used to be a huge choice of themes. Now we have four photos to choose from. Very disappointing. Please resolve.

  9. 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.

  12. 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

  14. I don't want to switch to bare-bones "classic mail", I just want the same new mail format I had until yesterday.

    The huge space on the right with unnecessary info about the sender... the choice between a blinding white background or a ridiculously dark one... switching back doesn't take me to the "previous version", it takes me to an unpleasant basic version and doesn't solve the problem. I don't think my eyes can use this new format, sorry and hope you consider the option of keeping it how it was until now.

  15. 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.

  18. 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?

  20. Need lighter background options/not white

    I need more background options that have lighter colors. The colors are too dark under "dark" and the only option for light is to have a white screen in the center, which is taxing on the eyes. Pastels people!!
