  1. 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!

  2. 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…

  3. Make "active" email distinct from the rest in the list

    Why isn't the notice for the email I am currently viewing visually distinct from the rest in the list? If I am reading it in the preview pane, I can't find it in the list when I want to continue.Didn't it use to be a denser color than the background?

  8. 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!!

  9. Colors

    Please put in some light, soft colors. What you have now is too intense and dark. Can't you put in a variety and please everyone? At one time, you had more choices. Please give us more options.

  15. 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.

  18. Hard to tell between read and unread emails

    Really hard to distinguish read and unread emails. A simple dot next to it and making it "bold" is not sufficient to easily tell them apart.

  20. 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.
