    Also, there's an official reply on the list that says you can easily change back using the settings menu. I've just been there. There is no such option. Why, on top of everything else, do you feel the need to lie to us?

    This keeps coming round regular as clockwork every few years. The original theme from the 90s works perfectly well as a webmail interface, and it's what we know and are familiar with. It's surely just a snippet of CSS. I don't understand why you're so keen on trying to convince us to use the new one (which is to my eye harder to read and generally too busy and confusing, and I bet it plays **** with accessibility software), and, when said heavy handed encouragement fails, enforcing the change anyway. I resisted it on my (less frequently used, and so not as well guarded) secondary account until it got forced a few years ago. As I repeatedly denied the change on my primary one and made direct complaint about it to customer services, I thought the primary was safe. Turns out that was just a diversionary tactic to lull us into a false sense of security so you could just randomly change it later on when we're least expecting it.

    Google seems to understand the value of a simple, clean interface. It's not perfect either, but GMail's default theme is now far more Yahoo than actual Y!Mail.

    It seems like change for change's sake. I've had this primary account for two decades as of this year. All that time the classic theme seemed to work just fine. Why, suddenly, in mid-2019, is it no longer an option?

    And yes, I know many more people are saying the same thing, but I think it shows the full strength of feeling if I both vote for all of those, and add my own supporting suggestion in kind. Right now all 20 "ideas" on the first page of results say the same thing, and I have a feeling that the situation is duplicated on most of the following pages (of which there seems to be at least 100...)

    I just don't get it. What advantage is it to you to force this change, which serves only to deeply annoy (and, it seems, compromise the usability) for a good slice of your userbase? Is it something in Yahoo's corporate philosophy to **** people off on purpose? EG, shutting down your original and quite useful directory based search function in favour of Microsoft's hopeless engine... buying up and then soon shutting down Geocities (in favour of a much less useful, and evidently far less used, heavily overpriced Small Business webhosting)... buying up and then messing up Flickr (...to try and make any but the most resolutely casual users switch to paid accounts, even though services like Photobucket and Imgur exist)... and so on, and so on, and so on. Are you trying to drive people away from using your email so you can close or make that a unrealistically expensive paid service as well?

    TBF this seemed to have become a problem in the "actual" classic interface, last time I tried to see whether an email returned by the search was still in the inbox or if I'd sorted it into a folder. Had to externally take note of its details and then return to the inbox view to search by date.

    It's still a bug / misfeature, and an annoying, stupid, and inexplicable one at that, but maybe not one unique to the new interface.
