    Hi there,

    Our engineers are working on incorporating Contacts into the new format. We appreciate your patience while we work on this.

    In the meantime, 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 via https://contacts.yahoo.com.

    Thank you!

  3. Where are the contacts?

    Every time I try to access my contacts, the mail system opens a new window and takes me back to the old version of Yahoo. This is very annoying.

    Also, something weird has been happening with my mail lists. I haven't changed a thing, but suddenly one of my longer list is missing about 30 addresses. I just tried to send out an email to one of my lists with about 10 people on it. Only 5 people actually received the email, despite me very carefully checking to see that I had clicked on the appropriate email list. Again, very…

  4. Time zone Warning

    Delete this setting. It appears more than just me are annoyed with this. It is still amazing that this is an issue when the mobile phones figured this out well over a decade ago. Strange how a progressive company as Yahoo cant seem to figure this one out.

  13. Contacts are not in the new format. Although accessible by going to the old format, this is a weakness & should be corrected

  15. where is my contact

    If you are encouraging people to use the new mail, then you should put the contacts in the new view. When we access contacts, it puts us back to the old mail. Why both using the new one then? This is very annoying!

  16. Please ease right to left writing.

    In the first use of the new system I was disappointed since many of my composed emails are written in Persian which needs right to left writing. I gmail, the composer nicely detects the language and automatically change to right to left when I write in Persian. Previous version of Yahoo composer was better that the new one for this need.

  17. Yahoo Calendar should not link to a new page!

    Love yahoo calendar, except that it now links out to a new page. Also, please give the calendar NATIVE android calendar sync. Just like when I use an iphone, it just works. On android, I need to download a separate app - SolCalendar - because it supports CalDAV. Most users are not this saavy and the integration is clunky. Please update your protocol to natively integrate with stock android calendar.

  18. calendar

    It's very irritating to have new tabs created whenevef I go to my calendar or contacts. I only need one tab (one instance) of my mail. Fix this: decide how to implement the calendar and contacts function well or take them away (the latter would be a huge mistage!)
