    I am very sorry you’re having this problem adding contacts to an email you want to send. This feature isn’t available in Yahoo! Mail Basic. If you are using the Basic version of Yahoo! Mail, you can switch back to full-featured mode to get this feature back. For more on how to switch between Basic and regular full-featured Yahoo! Mail, please have a look at “Switching between basic and full-featured Yahoo! Mail”, available at:

    If you are having this problem using the full-featured mode, then it is likely due to an issue with your Web browser. I recommend reading the following Yahoo! Mail Help article “Autocomplete not working” for the best help resolving this problem. You can find the link to it below.

    I hope this has helped you!

        I am experiencing the same problem too. However, it did not occur to my friend's yahoo account. It is very annoying. I have asked my friends sending email to my gmail account now. Yahoo has been performing very bad since one year ago!!!

        Please restore autofill feature. Have been with Yahoo email for 12 years now but will have to move everything to Google if this does not change back. Waste of my time.

        Is it correct that they took away the autofill when typing in your contact name? I assumed I had to set something up differently. Please advise!

        having to drop down for contacts takes time out of my busy schedule plus its old fashioned.
        return to the previous system, when the contact name pops into place as soon as i print the first letter of the contact i need.

        Can't pull contact when composing email, this makes it all too tedious. Please return to previous i
