Very poor font choice
Very poor font choice.
1. Does not support latin extended. Those characters are shown with a substitute font
2. Difficult to read - the thin font
3. The new messages are shown with thin characters and read ones with bold characters. I find this strange
4. No control over fonts in themes and background.
You may have noticed that we have made some subtle improvements to font sizes, thickness and contrast overall.
Also, please see the following help article on changing the default font style and size when writing mail.

How can I make the font larger? For some reason, the font was reduced and I can't make it larger.

font size is still small after changing the font settings
The new font or it size is awful. It's blurred and unreadable.
What is the main reason to made this changes, if this is a mistake of your new stupid management team, please return it back. Another thin is some times ago yahoo did the same thin with us, throwing away all private set of the mail page, like it was happened now. Is there any budget for that or something like to show your customer that some of your company manager do not care about your company real customers? I wont to receive answer on my questions, before I will make a decision or I will stay will yahoo or move to another provider?

I like the darker color choices of themes but I'd like to be able to increase the size and font of the letters.

My inbox font size is too small! Yesterday in shrank three time and I can not find how to get it to increase. Everything I am reading is that there are many people with the same issue and Yahoo is doing nothing to fix the problem.

Provide the capability to increase the font size cuz old people like me can hardly read the email that I'm writing. Thank you
Brent Neas commented
The inbox font is ******* the eyes. (This is a different topic than the font for composing.) Any plans for changing this or giving options? You indicate you've "Reviewed" posts like this one, but you don't indicate any plans for improvements. Yet we can't even vote to agree with those earlier posts. Seems you're ignoring this problem.

Incoming mail font size needs to be larger & darker for those of us with poor eyesight.

If you're going to shrink the fonts, at least have a setting so we can increase their size. This is the single reason I kept rejectting the "optional" "upgrade".
Lisa DePalo commented
Please add some new fonts.
These just are not cutting it at all!
Please give us a choice with fonts, their size and boldness or I'll go back to the old interface.

Please add few more fonts to make it more reader-friendly,
I am interested in LEELAWADEE and TREBUCHET
Something happened in the past year or so where my font too small and squished together when viewing my mailbox that I can barely read it! I've searched and searched and can't find the fix. Please help!

Id like to be able to change the font not only of my emails but areas like the inbox-its a bit harder to read now.

The subject heading (I guess, as there are no column headers) is both bold and light font. The light font is Very Difficult to read. The text for the dates is also too light/small for easy viewing. Please add a function for users to increase the font size. Thank you! Chris

I don't like that in the new mail box setting you can't change the font size of your folders or that you can't change the width of the compose column you should be able to do that.

Not to be mean but take a look at Gmail. MUCH easier to read. The new Yahoo main is, in my opinion, a step backwards.

I've removed Condensed Helvetica Neue but now it switched to another font which is so bad

Provide more Font, Size etc. options for composing or replying to message.
