  1. Reduce Blue Header

    Is there a way to reduce the size of the top blue (2-tone) header? It takes up way too much screen in order to view the actual emails. The search feature, user settings and "Home" button could all be reduced in size...

  2. Don't like the new look at all. Too harsh on the eyes, to bright. I prefer more muted colours. Earth-tones would be nice, or subtle greys

    How about backgrounds in muted tones, like Earth-tones, chocolate, pastels etc. The harsh colours are too distracting and intimidating. Thanks.

  7. I do not like advertisement pop up / bar to the right side of my screen timely popping up even after me closing it several times.

    I do not like advertisement pop up / bar to the right side of my screen timely popping up even after me closing it several times. Its Irritating. Need this to be stopped at the earliest. I hope yahoo does not like to force its users to shift to another browser which provides us the same emailing services.

  10. Add a "Lights Off"/Dark Option

    In this day and age, most sites have a "lights off" or dark option, which makes the background completely dark gray or black, with the text something easy on the eyes like gray. Not only is the new Yahoo Mail lacking this, but the background is a type of blazing white, even brighter than the prior e-mail. This isn't user-friendly in the least. Please introduce a dark option, and I don't mean the black "theme" that already exists.

  12. Message area background

    Also the message layout background is too bright. The old Classic version provides less message layout bright background. It would be nice to be able to just adjust that one area. Yes you can change the overall theme to a darker mode. But then it's all or none.

  15. white text on a dark background

    White text on a dark background is well known for being difficult to read, but this is what you choose? lighter backgrounds with dark text should be an option, but I can't find it

  17. More themes and background choices please!

    Theme design is ok, but could use more choices. Ability to adjust colours would be a plus.
