Oh, Yahoo Mail, what have you done?  
You've changed the font on the Inbox "list of message headers" (part of the window with sender/subject/date), that's what you've done. Now only about 8 messages fit into that list and that's if I make the "message text" part smaller.

The font of the "message header list" is also very thin and often hard to read.

I am not pleased.

I'm not going to back to Yahoo Classic Mail because I like the "outlook-y" format of the new Yahoo mail. But I'm not thrilled with the new format/font choices. Who are you, IKEA??

Information on how to get my old font back would be greatly appreciated, but I doubt that Yahoo is listening.

At least they could give me some options on what size I want things! Whatever happened to options? And personal customization? Isn't the web all about that?

I dropped Yahoo! Mail a couple of generations ago.

Have you tried Ctrl+MouseWheel to change the font size in that window?

No mousewheel on my laptop, though it does have the "side of the touchpad scroll" thing. It changed the size of the fonts in the whole window, which wasn't too bad. My big complaint is they use too much whitespace, both between the lines of from/subject/date info and when showing the basic header (from/to/subject) info for one email.

OK, I'm being picky. But I like my information presentation compact!
