How can we improve New Mail?

THEMES

These new themes are not attractive!!! There should be theme that are stimulating and inspirational. Themes like nature, geography, landscape, astronomy and other subjects.

    Too much limited & boring background themes. Was much happier with old yahoo mail. Get more exciting themes than bland colors & boring backgrounds. Be more original & vibrant! How about USA/American flags themes for starters?!

    Purple, green, orange, one blue. Thats it. Why limit users to such a few ****** color choices? Now that we have to PAY for yahoo mail, there should be BETTER CHOICES and not just the few ****** ones you have downgraded us to. The "NEW YAHOO MAIL" is downgraded and NOT as good as it used to be. Listen to your users!!! Is there anyone out there that likes it? (excluding Yahoo employees & owners)

    I would like to use the solid green behind Compose in the green theme. Generally, the gradients are pretty unappealing. a big part of my reluctance to switch to the "new" Yahoo mail.

    I don't want themes. Please make the option of "no themes" for the people who don't want them. I'm already putting up with your new interface, I don't want colors and images etc.

    Need more plain light backgrounds! The existing themes are too intense and distracting. Please give neutral options!

    Add more themes to yahoo mail. The existing themes are BORING and limited

    Add a much lighter gray and white theme, everything is too dark

    Black text on midnight blue background? powder blue on gray? These are unreadable except perhaps to high school sophomores. Bring back themes or (better) customization that lets your users make comfortable (or uncomfortable) displays according to our needs. I'm truly weary of being victimized by designers who slavishly chase after every self congratulatory trend. Form should follow function. That means make it usable first and foremost

    i want my lisbon bridge background back. this back ground theme you shoved up our *** is ******* garbage!

  • Mo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Provide pastel backgrounds. The ones now are too light or too dark for people with visual disabilities. My background before was perfect

    Gone is the theme colour that suited me!!!! Why? For what purpose? But there it is in Calendar! Which I have no use for! AAAAggghhh.

  • WLJ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The entire background should be a light pastel. Not stark white or some color. There is just too much strain on the eyes with this new mail no matter what I try.

    Hate themes! Need more of them or let us use our pictures. Give us old format with new upgrades!

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    PLEASE include a theme choice for a colored/pastel background with black lettering as with basic mail. White lettering hurts eyes - too bright and can"t really distinguish highlighted-mails! Also the white backgrounds are too bright! - hurt eyes. Poor choices made for all of these new themes!!! Dark letters on a pastel background is a most preferred choice.

    Please offer more themes and background options. Actual pictures and drawings would be better than the cartoon drawings you currently have.

    Give us the option to retain the old Themes with the none blurry letters and the easy to read format that we are all now accustomed to. The new Theme format is more difficult to read. OR give us the option to retain Classical email format. Thanks

    Hi! i understand that everything eventually has to change. There are a few things i miss from the old email set up. The themes aren't interesting or colorful. i assume that's something that will change? The old emoticons were better. Many of them were animated. Also, when i create an email, any animated smileys or gifs i insert just sit there with no movement. Those are my only real complaints. Thanks
