  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Printing

    Add the print icon on the navigation bar. I don't like to have to return to the top of the email in order to print it -- some are too long to see the icon without returning to the top.

  5. selection boxes next to emails are too faint

    the selection boxes next to emails in the inbox are so faint that they're difficult to see, so the cursor ends up outside of the box when selecting emails to delete; then you're taken to the email you were trying to delete, and when you go back to inbox, you have to re-select all of those emails. There is no way to increase this box contrast.

  7. Filters

    Would it be possible to create a filter system that can look for multiple pieces of the same type of criteria? For example, more than one email address, or more than one word in the subject?

  12. Auto generated card visible only to you - instructions needed. Current help and instructions are inaccurate.

    Auto generated card has wrong info showing and in the past I could change it by clicking on the 3 dots on the card. Those dots are gone and instructions for changing the information are inaccurate. Would love current instructions available.

  13. Personalizating options for visually challenged.

    Background options for the visually challenged, which include BLACK/darker text for folders, inbox, etc., with light toned, not bright white backgrounds. The eyes struggle with white ones. To bright! Right now the options do not offer this in settings, for personalizing. The old inbox did. I could have a non-white background and still have dark text. This is exactly why I refused to click the change to new option. I knew I'd lose what worked so well. Judging by other posts, I'm far from alone on this issue. The question is, will Yahoo care and accommodate these needs? I'm sure…

  15. Unread

    Unread messages sent to other folders than Inbox are not counted. I have quite a number of folders, and I need them. It's a real pain to have to check the whole list each time.
    Seriously, this is NOT an UPgrade, but a DOWNgrade.

  16. Automatically delete spam

    I would like to see spam deleted automatically once every 7 days,. The volume that would accumulate over 30 days would be in the hundreds of emails.

  17. attachments

    When forwarding emails with multiple attachments, I get an error saying that "we encountered a problem and cannot send," or something to that effect. Saved as a draft and then resent and it goes out immediately.

    Also, composing emails with multiple .zip files never finishing uploading. You just continue to see the spinning widget over the file. Prior version with progress bar was much better.

    Finally, when receiving an email with multiple attachments you could click the "download all attachments as zip file" link. Now when i click it, nothing happens.

    Lots of little bugs in this new version. After…

  19. Spam button is next to Mark as unread. 'WAY too easy if one is in a hurry to hit Spam instead of sub-menu for Mark as unread

    Spam button is next to Mark as Unread sub-menu. 'WAY too easy if one is in a hurry to hit Spam instead of sub-menu for Mark as Unread. This has caused untold angst and anguish for me. Make Spam button harder to accidentally hit (different size; different color; requires right click or double click; asks you if you're SURE you want to Mark as Spam) and MOVE IT ELSEWHERE so it's not so easy to mistakenly choose AND it's not so close to a much-more-frequently-used sub-menu. Spam is a nuclear option. You should have to REALLY MEAN IT to use…
