    Yahoo needs to offer custom background and theme colors. For example, I love purple but I don't particularly like the color purple that Yahoo offers. I'd like to mix my own purple theme/background.

    STOP CHANGING IT. IT'S SIMPLY EMAIL. I DON'T WANT SOME COLORFUL ****** INTERFACE.

    The new themes and backgrounds are very dark and masculine. Need lighter colors. Very difficult to see messages in the dark colors. I'm going back to the old format. This is awful!

    To be able to upload you're own personal picture an be able to use it as you're background. But not just that being able to customize our tabs and how things pop up would be nice as well.

    You really are not giving us much to entice us to use this new format. I'm not a big fan, but I'm trying it out. And the Theme options are pretty weak. Step it up Yahoo. Because honestly I love my gmail and may leave you all together at this point.

    And also...get your server in check. Your email program is the only program that constantly says I have no internet connection when my gmail and everything else I am using is connected just fine.

    Like I said..step it up!

    Hi. I have been a user of Yahoo Mail for about 20 years now. I have just opened my 3rd account and I have a curiosity that has been on my mind for a long time. Why is it that Yahoo Mail is so limited with the colors they offer for their fonts? I love that you have updated your Emojis. That's awesome, however, more colors and different hues and tones would be even more awesome. And the ability to adjust the colors offered like Windows offers their users. Other than that I think Yahoo is the best. Thanks for listening.

    Please provide an option for choosing specific theme for every single account. I mean theme changes when we choose an account.
    By this ability we can distinguish our accounts easily.
    You have this ability in your yahoo mail in android and it is great.

    Before this last update I had a pink theme, but now it is no longer an option. I am very upset about this. Please either add a theme with pinks or allow me to choose my own colors.

    I see that you reviewed the messages about the pale, drippy pastel colors that Yahoo offers for e-mails. But nothing has changed. There is still someone at Yahoo who thinks his brainfarts ("Oooooh, I'm going to create a unique Yahoo look with pastel colors, oooooh!") smell like rose petals.

  • Peter Lockwood commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes a new look is a good idea, simplicity helps too, but life and colour and user optional choices are the future, tweak your own computer has been around for a long time, tweak your own account, nope, that's too hard for the geniuses to offer such things to us loyal users, Gmail are already way ahead in background theme availability, yahoo couldn't be that poor that they can't better them. Maybe they are poor at heart. Stop to smell the roses, and watch the sunrises and sunsets sometimes yahoo techs, maybe you'll wake up from your trip the light boredom.

    Your new look is pretty basic, are you in need of cutting costs, offering such a basic old school layout, anyone would think your still in the 80's
