  5. 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…

  6. Contact list

    Please go back to the old contact list where it was alphabetical for last name 1st and I cannpot change a person from a members list to ordinary list Nor can I add new members to my members list The old system was great because when a person no longer wanted to be a member I could revert them to just contacts Now I have no way to move them only contacts When I do a mail out for members only I have to go to a printed sheet and do each one individually. I will eventually move to another…

  9. Ditch the new email, go back to the old email. This is preposturous

    I have no contact in your "new" totally obnoxious email. You have thousands protesting your dumb Basic Mail concept. All are going to other email providers. I am moving my important mail and folders to gmail. Gmail and other providers do not act as tyrants forcing their clients to either pay to block truly obnoxious ads (that get in the way of even reading one's emails) or to use what you euphamistically call Basic Mail. This is nothing like email used to be. I don't have access to my emails of a couple of days ago, nor to the emails…

  12. Contact list still messed up.

    1) Cannot edit contacts. List does not allow for labeling which phone number or email is whose. For example, I'd like to label Joe's cell, Sara's work email vs Sara's home personal email, etc. A list of phone numbers does no good if i don't know whose is whose and if I can't add extension numbers to the listing.

    2) List is still not in any kind of alphabetical order. Even by first name, as you insist on doing, their are names out of order. And, like the rest of the world, I still want my contacts alphabetically by LAST…

  13. Spam addresses auto added to contacts

    How dare you save Instahard to my contacts? This is a spam address. This is extremely disturbing and I cannot fathom how Yahoo finds it appropriate to save random addresses to my contacts. Moreover, I can only see these contacts which I did not deliberately save on my phone and cannot see them in my contacts when I'm on my computer, which is suspicious and creepy. Finally, I have to delete contacts one by one. I had to go through and tediously delete dozens of inappropriate spam addresses that had been auto saved into my contacts. I always move these…

  14. number of contacts in a list

    How do I determine the number of contacts in a list? The old system provided the number of contacts in a list.

  17. the Address book "search" mechanism is very disappointing. It is disfunctional. it simply does not find contact correctly

    In my contact list, sometimes I use the city location as middle name or nick-name.. The Contact (real-time search simply does not catch it.
    Example in my own contacts. I have a listing called:
    first name: Reliable
    middle: Parts
    Last: Orlando.

    in the search box I type: Orlando.. it does not find the listing..
    But if I type: Parts, it finds it.
    Quality of SW could be much better at Yahoo. Something is wrong.

  20. Please add contact nickname to import/export CSV format

    I need to import over 100 contacts that include a nickname. The contact details have a place for the nickname but the import/export functions do not support that field. As a result, I still need to manually edit every imported contact.
