  3. You added problems with new contacts on the right side. Maybe it's time to reinvent your mission, vision and concept?

    Dear Yahoo! Mail,

    I am your user since 2003. I had a chance to switch to Gmail, but their contacts and other features made me unsatisfied.
    However, it seems that you do not understand what EMAIL business is. First, it looks like you do changes without any concept. Like you just do what users say (by the voting system which is also strange). Second, it looks like you do not want to earn money from the mail service.
    Let me explain, and I feel your data, which I hope you analyze, confirms my thoughts.
    Only in USA, there are 8…

I will eventually move to another…

  10. CONTACTS REMAINS UNWORKABLE

  11. Deleted contact come back to contact list. Security risk !!!!

    I followed Yahoo's suggestions:
    1. From Yahoo Mail, click the Contacts icon
    2. Click on the contact’s name.
    3. Click the More options icon then Delete contact.
    4. Click OK to confirm you want the contact deleted.

    However this does not work. The deleted contacts are still coming back into the contact list. This is a safety issue because my email account gets hacked repetedly despite two step sign-in. I have deleted all content of all mail boxes so that the hackers can't find recipients. But if the contacts keep coming back into the contact list, the hackers have a…

  12. organization of contacts in pull down

    What in the world are those stupid little circle things that you now use to alphabetize the contacts. They are purely random and dumb, get rid of them and just use the contact name to organize.

  13. Why can’t I see ALL my contacts at once?

    Would like to be able to list all my contacts by LAST NAME, and to see all of the contacts listed when I click on “Contacts,” and not just some. Why is that such a difficult thing?

  15. sort contacts

    When composing an email and pressing the To: button, contacts sort by email order. Please sort by first name or provide the option to do so.

  17. A LAST NAME FIELD!!!! WOW!!!! (sarc)

    UNBELIEVABLE!!
    You guys added in a last name field into the contacts. Are you serious?!?!?!? WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!
    It only took the techs 8 months to fix what they did incorrectly.

    Ok.............
    Next: I need to alphabetize my lists. They're a jumbled mess. This is basic. Really basic.

    Next: Please allow us to sort our contacts by last name! This is also basic. Very basic.
    Next: When I search for something in my contacts, I need more than 6 options. This may not be needed for people under 15 years old. But it is basic for the rest of us.
    Next:…

  18. New mail looks nice

    The new mail looks nice, however the contacts are hard to find and edit. Apart from that, the interface is clean and simple. I rate this 4 stars.

  19. I completely agree with undermentioned comment : it is really impossible to adapt, complete, modify your contacts.

    I completely agree with undermentioned comments : it is really impossible to adapt, complete, modify your contacts.
    The same problem arises with the calendar. Very difficult to have a complete overview of your activities by month. Before it was very easy.

  20. Allow me to delete previous versions of email addresses used previously but that are not valid.

    When searching contacts in creating a new email. I get all variations ever used even the typos but I don't have a way to eliminate the bad versions. Give me a way to eliminate the junk versions of email addresses so I won't select the wrong one again.
