Yahoo! Mail service is at the second spot among the free emailing services. It is preceded by Google’s Gmail. In an effort to retain its users; Yahoo has been making sincere efforts to improve the emailing experience. Better spam filters, improved user interface and added security with two-step verification are some of the recent changes. This post will cover one of such feature i.e. ‘Themes.’ Not at par with what Gmail offers, Yahoo too allows you to create a customized inbox with default themes. Let’s see how you can apply these themes to your Yahoo! Mail account.
