  1. PLEASE make it possible to alphabetize names within a list AND to alphabetize the lists as well. WHY wasn't it so from the start??

    PLEASE make it possible to alphabetize names within a list AND to alphabetize the lists themselves, as it was in the previous Yahoo Mail program. Why this wasn't done from the get go is a mystery to me!!!

  2. Contact Lists - these were one of the powerful aspects of Yahoo mail. Now it is too time consuming to make lists, add to lists, see lists,

    Give me the option in the "all contacts" to put people on various lists, make the lists alphabetized so I can once again see if adds, deletes, corrections were done appropriately. Lists used to be powerful, now they are NOT easy to use!

  3. Using simple version: When adding a contact, there is no way to add the contact to a group.

    Yahoo, bless your hearts, you have messed this up royally. I should be able to add a contact —new or existing — to a group. Nope. No can do. Get this act together please or I'm finding another server.

  4. You have caused me a lot of trouble by no longer allowing me to sort my contacts by first name. Please fix this.

  5. Contact lists: Do not add in contacts that have the same name but different contact info. Just have the ones I added.

    Contact Lists: Please bring back the feature that counted how many contacts are in the list. Also, in the new version, there were two contacts missing from my list, and four or five contacts that had been duplicated, with either different email addresses, or just phone numbers. I had to delete those extra ones, and add in the missing ones. Very annoying.

  6. "Assign to List" not working.

    When I Assign a contact to a mailing list, while thier contact info shows them assigned, many hours have passed and when I open the list they are not in it. Please fix. I somehow managed a work around and eventually got a person onto the list but now it's happened a second time and I am not having success. This needs to work.

  7. Contact lists - need to see lists in alpha order. When adding new ones, it's too tough to confirm.

  8. Contact in group list - often don't show when you try to send a group email.

    I manage a Club with several groups within. Often, when I attempt to send an email to one of these groups, or even the whole, one or more names will be admitted from the list. This is very annoying since it takes considerable time to determine just who is missing.

  9. I am having problems with my contacts syncing with my phone in the new version of Yahoo Mail

    When I add, delete or edit a contact in the New Version of Yahoo Mail, the changes do not appear on my iPhone contacts. They will not sync. I spent numerous hours trying things that Yahoo Help suggested and many more hours with Apple Care. Finally, Yahoo Help told me that they are having ongoing issues with this. This was after I had already emailed them 8 different times. I feel truly betrayed. Yahoo should let its customers know when there is a potential issue that might affect them and then let them know when their engineers have resolved it.…

  14. Contact editing doesn't allow deleting Notes. And in one contact, the same "Notes" are repeated 15 TIMES!!!!! FIX THIS!!!!!

    Contact editing doesn't allow deleting Notes. And in one contact, I see SEVEN COPIES of the "Notes" field, and can't delete any of them.

    I tried clearing each of them out and hit "Save" but the notes were still there.

    FIX THIS!!!!!

  15. My experience with the new Yahoo mail w/ NO contacts from before the upgrade

    The new Yahoo upgrade email comes with a small CONTACT icon on the right side. When I click on it, it looks great with NO contacts from before the upgrade.
    From this forum, someone mentioned to try to use the mobile email Yahoo app, I tried and I only found 20% of my old contacts.
    Desktop/Browser version, zero found.
    .
    Let's talk about the help. Wow, it is kind of difficult to find the place to ask for help. After I found it, there is a bug with the form, they don't take the date field (is it May 22…

  16. Contact notes all run together after they are saved. Too hard to view without spaces.

    Allow us to leave spaces and blank lines in the contact notes area like we use to be able to! Near impossible to read the note details unless I open like I am going to edit. Once I open to edit all the blank spaces and blank lines are there.

  18. Don't strip Linefeed/Carriage retern from the comments of Contacts.

    Why is Yahoo! stripping Linefeed/Carriage Return (LF/CR Windows -- CR Mac -- LF Linux/Unix) from Comments. All other contract manager allows them. This strips all the formatting from the comment. and doesn't read well at all. Some of my contacts have 1000 characters in them and doesn't make since when I look at them. This lack of support for this is very bad and would prevent some users from using them. I have purposely left out any paragraph breaks in this post. Just to show how ridiculous the lack of paragraphs are. IT IS A PART OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Lets…
