  1. I want my old email format backc - I've started to go to Gmail.

    I hate the new format! I NEED my old format - the color combination was good for my eyes. Now there are only awful color choices and my eyes can't get used to any of them!!! Plus why did you move my emails into new folders you made up?? I had my emails stored where I wanted them - now I have take time to go through all the new folders and put the emails where they were. My emails are private - not for your prying eyes. I've been with Yahoo mail for at least 20 years and I…

    Terrible annoying "round" BS design! Stop Fing auto changing it! There isn't even a actually NEW design than this st round thing?! You've been forcing us back & forth with overwhelming negative feedback everytime you auto force the setting of this design, WHY DON'T YOU GET IT ALREADY: WE DON'T LIKE/WANT IT! LEAVE IT AS THE CLASSIC DESIGN AS WE LIKE IT! (or at least give us a *** option to change it back to to a different version NOT FORCE EVERYONE INTO IT!)

  4. I had a better background picture before and now I can't get it back, these background choices suck.

    I had a better background picture before and now I can't get it back, these background choices suck. Maybe you should let the user customize their backgrounds themselves with personal photos or pics that they'd like to see.

  5. Allow different backgrounds for different Yahoo accounts

    Discussion: I have 2 Yahoo accounts--one for personal and one for professional use. Currently I am unable to quickly and easily distinguish between accounts because the background is the same. I'm unable to see how I can select different themes for each...when I change the background on one the other defaults to the one I selected. Recommendation: Allow different background themes and colors for different Yahoo! accounts. I'm not a programmer, but this seems like low hanging fruit/an easy win for Yahoo! and its customers.

  7. fix new email if we have to use it.

    1) make the colors eye friendly-light colors for reading emails, maybe some decent choices
    2) MOVE THE TRASH CAN BACK TO THE LEFT
    3) If we have to look at ads, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE EMAIL LIST!!!! but them in the borders.
    4) put back the email filter when searching so we can look at one folder at a time. SUPER tedious to impossible to clean up as it is.
    Otherwise lots of people are leaving.

  11. You're losing us

    Honestly, why make such a dreary miserable appearing email app when the version I've used for years was so beautiful? You will have to find a way to give us the means to make it look gorgeous as we could before or you will lose millions of us as subscribers.

  14. The feedback is clear. 100% of people HATE the new format.

    The feedback is clear. 100% of people HATE the new format. Why do you insist on pushing this new format forward without asking the people who use your service whether or not they want it? You are just going to lose a TON of users who have been using your service for YEARS.

    Give back the option to load Classic for those of us who want it. We don't want any fancy new features. We want our email to just work, which is what the Classic format did perfectly.

  16. No worries - I've downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird.

    I'm tired of the format changes, so I've downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird as my email client app. No ads! Be sure to set security to allow older apps with supposedly "unsecure" login methods to access Yahoo mail.

  20. Just Me (With MS)

    I have MS and lost the use of my optic nerve in my right eye. The old format with the plain blue and white I was able to navigate through. I continue to try the new format but it is very difficult. Email should be both useful and pleasurable. If you cannot go back to the old blue and white format, at least tone down the colors in the options available. You have to make email that EVERYONE can use, not just the sighted.
