    Thanks for this suggestion! With the launch of the Contact Card feature you can now edit contact details directly from your inbox or a message window. When you hover over a sender’s name or an address that you’ve added to an email a contact card will appear. Any details that you add or update will be automatically reflected in your contact list.

    Please take a look at our help article below for more details on this feature:

        Why cannot i edit contact details from sent mail..why so restrictions..

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This doesn't actually work. I hovered over the address I had put in the "to" field and nothing happened. No card, no editing window, nothing.

        Yahoo mail has gone to the F'ing $h!ts over the past year or two... I'm done with this garbage!

        Yeah, putting the address in the little bubble, so I can't edit it, is annoying. Especially if I have to look at another tab, to try to get it typed in correctly, and when i come back to type some more, it's locked in a stupid bubble.

        I really don't even know how to find my contacts I have now, let alone to edit the ones I presently have or adding new ones. I hate this New Email format!

        You have "recent contacts" in the actions section. Why can't I delete those which I don't want?

        Sorry, I've seen that this has just been added but with a normal click.

      • sorrysorry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        When you receive an email for the first time you used to be able right-click and add it to the contacts immediately, Now you have copy the email address, go to contacts and then create a new contact. So much longer. The old version had it sussed.
