  1. Lost email

    Hi, I received an email from Australia this morning. And it came in the "Countless" section. When I tried to look for it again, I couldn’t find it anymore. It was not in any folder. Not even in spam. That was important and I should get an answer soon. I couldn't find the email I sent to the same address. Is Australia closed or why did my email disappear?

  2. it's been nearly 2 years.............

    ..........and STILL:
    * my lists aren't in alpha order. And have about 60.

    * when I search, I get 6 choices. I have 7000 contacts. Six choices isn't enough.
    * I search for an email address, and I'm told it doesn't exist. BUT when I find an email in a folder with that exact same address, and put the cursor over the address, I'm given the "want to edit it" option. So, yeah, it exists! Maddening!

    Everytime you guys fix/change something, you go backwards. Plz plz give us what we ask for. Why can't you guys put customer satisfaction as…

  5. Have contacts updated once it's entered.

    When entering a contact and saving it, it does not show up when you type in search window. Although, when you look it up manually it's there... Why? Please fix contacts to work properly!!

  6. CONTACTS

    When are you going to read and take heed of the many comments regarding the new CONTACTS format? The old version was easy to work with.

    >You have us crammed into a narrow little sidebar instead of giving us room to work;
    >the nonsense of my home zip code appearing as a dropdown in every place for zip code on every contact is annoying.

    >I want to sort by last names AS DOES VIRTUALLY EVERYONE IN THE CIVILIZED WORLD--but you constantly revert to your preferred default of first names.

    >You force us into a single line entry under NOTES.This is…

  8. Lists in contacts are awful

    I've repeatedly tried to save new contacts and failed.

    In the old version it was possible to assign a contact to lists; now this isn't an option (or if it is, it's impossible to find), so you have to go into the list and edit that by searching for and adding the contacts, which is cumbersome and a right pain compared to the old version. So if you want to add a contact to multiple lists, you need to edit each list individually - this is such a nuisance.

  13. contacts don't autosave

    Contacts aren't Auto-Saving and I can't find any way to autosave them. My contacts used to autosave and it hasn't been for a long time. I use a Mac and usually check my mail through Mac, not on the yahoo site. It used to autosave my contacts, even through my Mac, it doesn't anymore. I've searched all help topics and don't see anyone else mentioning it. Please help, I have years of contacts that aren't there - but I have the emails, lol. Thanks! :)

  14. delete multiple contacts at one time

    Make a way to delete multiple contacts at one time. A way to select unwanted contacts to delete easily without having to click on each one and make several clicks---way to time-consuming.

  16. add ability to create email addresses using phone number and cell provider

    ability to create an email address using a phone number. for example:
    [insert 10-digit number]@mms.cricketwireless.net (or the appropriate provider). that way if you are at your computer and you want to text someone but your phone is a few feet away, you can go to your contacts, select who you want to text, write up the text, and send - rather than stop what you are doing on the computer, get up, find the phone, write up the text and send. also, even if the phone is right by you but you are in the middle of writing or looking…

  17. Allow import of Contacts properly

    Contacts don't import correctly, even from another yahoo account, so how about making it work? If I try and import from a gmail or yahoo account only around 50% of them migrate which is useless.

  20. It would be good to be able to combine lists together.

    We currently have 6 lists that I made up when I was learning how to use your email site. I would now like to combine them all into one list. I am told there is no way of doing this.
