  3. too much border

    How about dedicating a wee bit more space to what is supposed to be the main purpose of the page...email! So much real estate is wasted with borders and menus and let us not forget the huge ad running down the right side of my screen.

  6. column on the right is wasted space

    The settings across the top of the column could easily be moved elsewhere. After all the whole purpose of email is to be able to read it not to have it cut off by a poorly designed web page.

  8. Make it look and act like it used to

    Make it look and act like it used to. Indent subfolders. Take :"sort options" back out of the list of folders/subfolders.Give me back the colors I lioke -they're MUCH more readable, especially for people with vision problems. I still have my colors for calendar - are you gonna ***** that up next? YOU WILL NOT FORCE ME TO "PRO." I'll go to a new provider and import my yahoo mail to their interface.

  9. 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.

  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.

  14. 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…

  16. Themes are old, dry and boring. Let us upload our own background, please

    Using our own background photo (like gmail) is an easy change to implement. Please do this!
