  1. I WANT MY CONTACTS BACK!!!

    I can't even figure out how to get my CONTACTS to a point where all I have to do is click on them and choose. I've been with yahoo a long time and, quite frankly, I have no idea why a trusted service like yahoo would make their new page less functional and harder to use. If changes are not made to bring this new system to more like the old reliable one or, if the old one is not brought back I will find another source, and I don't want to do that.

    • Stop those annoying news notifications on my Android phone! What makes you think you can just send things to my phone without my permission

      Yahoo I think your days are numbered. Whoever is coming with these changes is driving you into the ground.

      • I don`t like the bright screen aka white. So while your changing the whole look of yahoo mail add way`s of customizing the background

          Thank you for your feedback. This feature has been added to the latest update (Version 5.3) to the Yahoo Mail app. You should now be able to select a new color scheme for your inbox.

        • Notifications

          I only want a sound notification, not a status bar notification. I had that setting until yesterday. Is that no longer an option? The notification settings are confusing. I've tried every combination and can't make it work.

          • Yahoo mail keeps stopping on both of my Hudl2s.

            Despite reinstalling the app several times it continually crashes on both of my Hudl2.
            It works fine on my Motorola phone but not on Hudl2 - Android 5.1

            • Unable to sync contacts on android!

              The ability to sync contacts on an Android device is gone. Email is pretty useless without an address book

              • I am frustrated with the fact that I cannot actually communicate with a yahoo representative.

                I am disgusted that the only option we have is to search forums. Who has time for that?!? Plus, I have an issue that the "community" absolutely can not help me with.

                        • Older version

                          Please go back to the version prior to November 11, 2015. Ever since then, I have lost most of my contacts. Now, I am not getting email notifications on my work address. That was fixed for a short time, but does not work again. This has been extremely frustrating for me for the past 5 months. Please do not fix something that is not beoken!

                                      I hate the new interface.

                                      I can't find contacts.

                                      I can't format emails as before.

                                      Why is there no 'new messsage' notification?
                                      I avoid checking email. Theres always too much spam that is also difficult to manage with the filters. Marking unwanted messages as spam seems to have no effect.
                                      It would be helpful to have a clear visual notification on the onscreen app icons
