Problem with right-to-left languages
Persian (Farsi) is a right-to-left language and must be right-justified. But all conversations are left-justified by defaults. This problem was solved in gmail a long time ago.
The New Mail team is still working on the format for right to left languages. Please switch back to the classic version for now.
This help page explains how to switch back:
More than one year to fix a feature that has already worked for many years. All the while people writing in Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and so on cannot compose emails properly.

After this was actually solvable in the previous version - not I am forced to switch to the "NEW" mail, and this is still unresolved (I am writing in Hebrew).
This is 2019 - seriously, writing in a RTL language shouldn't be so hard to implement, especially when using dots, commas, numbers in the end of lines it gets all skewed up. seriously - you guys are owned by Microsoft - just use Word 2001 word processing abilities and fix it yesterday.

It's still messed up and does not actually give the option to change the default location or the interface language. They say they have been working on this since the last version came out, but I'm not holding my breath. Google, here I come!
Please add some features for right to left languages. I write in Persian, and when I start composing or replying, I need the cursor to start from right side of the page. In previous version of YMail, this was functioning (although it had lags) but in this new one, it seems that it doesn't work.
Also, I need the font Tahoma to be my default font because in Persian it is more beautiful than current fonts. I remember that in old YMail, Tahoma was among the fonts.

Of course we have "right align" but it's really different from "right to left" and vital for Arabic or Persian languages.
Adding this to new version, make yahoo mail magnificent for us ;)
