Yahoo’s so-called ‘revamped’ email service is apparently putting off its users, who are finding the redesigned overall appearance of the service, similar to that of Google’s Gmail.
The makeover, which went live on October 8, has been touted as a total disaster by many frustrated Yahoo users, who discovered that many of the most useful features from the service were taken off, like the ‘print’ button and sorting mails by sender.
According to Fox News, some of Yahoo Mail’s estimated 275 million users complained of broken functions like autosave, draft deletion and disappearing emails.
The frustrated users after complaining on Yahoo’s official site took to Change.org and filed a petition, demanding the return to the old mail look.
The petition organizer, Jan Hyatt wrote that most of the users picked Yahoo because of its interface and that they do not like Gmail and wanted to switch back to the older version.
Meanwhile, a Facebook group dedicated to the same cause wrote an open letter to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, lashing out for the ‘worst email inbox design’ and urging her to revert back to the previous version on which they have relied on for years despite Google’s attempt to lure them away.
