  2. ABC order by last name for contacts

    I should have waited until I tried what you suggested. I did go back to Basic Mail, sorted the names by Last Name. However, in the list the first name shows up first. The last name should show up, not the first. I'm trying to coordinate 2 e-mail accounts to have the same addresses, this is making it very hard. PLEASE change it back to the way it was originally - Last name, first name.

    Thanks,
    Deanna Ralph

  3. Issues with new Contacts format

    Many annoyances with the new Contacts format when viewing on a desktop:


    1. Can no longer view Contacts as a full page.


    2. Doesn't show all contacts under each letter. Instead you have to click on "2 more" or "5 more" just to see them all for that letter.


    3. Clicking on a contact doesn't show all the information for that contact. Instead, you have to click on "View more information".


    4. Previously, if the birthday didn't include a year, the Contacts page still showed the month and day. Now, the Contacts page shows birthdays if a month, day, and year were included, but…

  6. Maintain inbox sort order please

    I prefer my inbox to be sorted by Unread messages. If I move off the Inbox to another folder and then return to the Inbox, the sort order is no longer by Unread messages, but instead by Date: Newest On Top. This is quite annoying to have to set the sort order each time I navigate to other folders.

  7. There needs to be a way to delete contacts in bulk! It's archaic and inefficient to have to remove them one at a time.

    Allow me to see the whole list at once; provide checkboxes next to contacts so I can select many at once and delete them together (the same way I can with emails).

  10. Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

    Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

  14. Improve your Spam filters PLEASE.

    I nearly deleted my account because of it. I'm sick to the back teeth of receiving emails regarding African Lottery wins, being the beneficiary of an inheritance, dodgy high end labelled goods at ridiculously low prices and the links to **** dating sites. It's shameful that Yahoo, who have some of the best IT guys in the world working for them can't get this right. My computer is a family computer that my kid has access to.

  15. Inport csv

    This new version of mail does not allow for import of a csv file. It only allows from social media or other email types. Please put back the ability to import csv files. I could do it 2 weeks ago. Today is 8/22/2019.

  16. Lock in sort function

    When I log into my email, on my mac via your website, I have to go the sort options and select sort by unread. If I go into another folder and go back to my inbox I have to reselect sort by unread which is very annoying. How do I lock in sort by unread?

  17. Can't view contacts details, only unasked-for past emails

    Yet another unwelcome yahoo feature rammed down our throats on an old Windows platform. Now contacts show beside the new inbox. Good idea.

    But how can I view all my contact info, addresses, ALT phone numbers etc.? Clicking on a contact only gives a string of previous emails, not all contact details. Instead of blocking access to valuable infot, please bring back ability to view and edit all details of a given contact, not the incomplete function now interfering.

    Hello Yahoo. Please add sort capability for contacts, by both last name and date of addition. Your customers are asking for this!
