  2. Yahoo Contacts not available for several months

    When I am trying to access new yahoo mail contacts, it's automatically opening another page and switching to classic yahoo mail but Yahoo Contacts not appearing. Showing "Yahoo will right be back, thank you for your patience. Our Engineers are working quickly to resolve the issue". This is occurring for several months and I am not able to access Contacts to create, edit or delete contact in Yahoo mail.

  3. Stop blocking emails from legitimate senders

    You have started blocking emails from a legitimate sender. How can this be fixed, as it is particularly annoying. It is like the postman deciding not to deliver a letter to my house without asking my permission.

  4. autofill contacts

    Autofill for the To: line gives all sorts of suggestions which are not in my contact list, then at the end gives what IS in my contact list. I want an option to use ONLY what is in my contact list or at the very least, suggest them first and THEN others that you create.

    You can remove contact suggestions in Classic Mail by clicking on the X next to the suggestion.

  5. Can't remove contacts from drop down list of contacts when creating emails

    For the last month or so, I've noticed that when you try to remove a contact from the contact list while creating an email, the opeartion doesn't work properly.

    When you click "remove", the list will instead leave the letter you start with.

    For example:
    1) you have template email
    2) you use the letter A in "to" list
    3) autopopulated email contact list appears
    4) you attempt to click cancel on first email (ex: abcdefg@email.com)
    end result =
    to: A

    I'm currently using various versions of Firefox as my web browser. (Seen this on 3 different computers)
    I…

    The best thing to do would be to type/paste the whole address before cancelling the autosuggest window.

  6. Fix the ******* Contacts list! Can't add/delete/edit people! COME THE **** ON! WHY DID YOU GET RID OF THAT FEATURE ********!

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I CAN'T ADD OR DELETE OR EDIT NAMES IN THE ALLEGED "IMPROVED" YAHOO MAIL! You must really be taking the right steps to force people to gmail. Completely unacceptable that I cannot edit or add contacts like before. ******* unacceptable and I'm not a swearing person. I click on the little Address Book on the side and it takes me to the "classic" version BUT those edits are not syncing with the "new" version. **** **** ******** *******!

    Currently, Contacts are only available in Classic Mail until the new version is completed. This is expected behavior.

    If you start typing the name of the contact in the To field, the address should auto-populate. Clicking on the “To” when composing an email will also bring up a list of contacts.

  12. Make it stop jumping back to the top of the email while I'm reading my emails!!!!

    Every time I begin typing in an email address, the cursor jumps backward, deleting a letter I've already typed. When I try to correct it, it will take the letter, but moving on, continues to jump back and replace letters. Can't stand this new version.

  13. provide a way of contacting yahoo customer service, preferrably an email address.

    1) Provide a means of sending an email to Yahoo Customer Service. It is next to impossible to do so now. The choices offered for Help Subjects have nothing to do with the issue I am having. 2) Get rid of New Mail entirely; it sucks. Change for the sake of change is annoying. 3) Tell me why Yahoo mail sends emails I want to Spam when I have never told Mail that that source is Spam.

  14. New contacts are not saving in the contacts list and also having downloading issues

    New contacts were automatically saving in my contact list and hence I did not have to look for it, however I have to put manually everytime I compose a new email.
    I am also facing problems while downloading attachments, either they do not download after clicking download or requires multiple clicks to see the option. I am forced to forward my emails to other email IDs just to download.
    Thank you.

    You can access contacts by clicking on the icon on the upper right side (small icon made up of a rectangle with three small stacked squares). This will open Contacts in a new tab of your browser in the classic mail look. You can also access your contacts by clicking on To, CC or BCC when you are in the compose, forward or reply mode or via https://contacts.yahoo.com.

    Thank you!

    The app requests contacts when opening because it’s looking for contacts’ information to help with composing emails.
