  1. Give us more interesting 'theme' options that aren't so dark, when they're on the full or what are currently referred to as dark setting.

    The the themes are sparse and unimaginative. On the 'dark' setting they're too dark and on the medium and light settings the page is too all white. Otherwise, I have no real objection to the change in format.

  2. Since videos automatically play when my inbox is empty, I exit Yahoo mail. With old mail I gladly kept it active all the time.

    Please provide an easy way to disable automtic video play when the inbox is empty. Thanks.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  11. Allow changes to letter color for low contrast - vision impaired. I prefer dark letters on semi dark background.

  13. 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.

  15. small space for email

    Space for actual emails is reduced enormously. Why yahoo ribbon takes up so much more space. The email list is squeezed from the top and from the side into 30% of the area.

  17. emoticons *****

    First off, I DESPISE that you FORCED me to change. That is just so BIG BROTHER of you. Second, I have read dozens of complaints regarding everything on the NEW Yahoo and THOUSANDS of people hate it, including me. Its not original in any way, and as my topic header says, the emoticons *****. They are boring, lifeless, and exactly like all of the others out there. Yahoo used to be my favourite email service above ALL OTHERS and now, you are just as lame as the rest of them. Bring back the old Yahoo for those of us who…
