  1. Update mail stationary! Xmas/N.Year in April? Flower selections gone! Add "To Cheer & Sympathy"

    Mail stationary used to have selections of beautiful flowers! You also got rid of the rose/flower emoticon I always used with my signature on emails. Add "To Cheer You and Sympathy and Thinking Of You" selections. Bring back those flowers! You still have Christmas and New Years selections/many...with SNOW/winter selections when it's nearly May!

  2. I use this email at work. I don't need colors that look like they came from a crayon box and no, the blue is not even ok.

  3. on the left side, the background vs text contrast is TERRIBLE!

    Either brighten the background or DARKEN the text. And make the indicator for number of items in a folder BOLD.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. White lettering on dark background is murder on the eyes

    Classic Mail inboxes had black lettering on dark backgrounds. Please add an option for black lettering again. White type on dark is hard to read - any designer will tell you that.

  9. Stationery

    It's EASTER and there's no change in your stationery reflecting this time of the Season.

    Your staff should be more attuned to such seasonal changes inclusive of a nice selection.

    Thanks for the past selections with hopes that the future will resonate with up-to-date selections!

  10. Dark background for empty folders..?

    Empty spam folder is white, although I have "dark mode" enabled. This "dark mode" is THE reason for me to use this updated Yahoo mail, it is so much easier for eyes. But when I empty spam folder, background goes all white, which was quite a shock first time! Could you please adjust this to the selected colouring scheme?
    Also, the spam folder does not show "immediately" whether there is spam, like the older version did with the number of new messages in that folder.
    But, basically I like the new Yahoo mail! Usually I don't like major updates in…

  12. Need darker checkbox outline and darker lines to separate each email.

    The lines which separate each email are too light grey. They need to be darker to separate each email 'visually' from the next. It also helps when you are using a mouse to 'check' or 'uncheck' the boxes, etc.

  13. 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.

  14. 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! :)

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  20. frame

    When I am on my laptop the frame on either side of the emails is too wide. Can you make it so that I can scale the width. I searched for emails by sender and the whole left right side blew up under a tab so photos showed but I couldn't read the email subject because it took up so much room. Can you just make them adjustable like adjusting a margin on a word document. That would be helpful.
