So...1) it takes me to the old Yahoo to look at contacts, then bugs me to use the new.
2) When I add or delete contacts to a group, they never seem to "stick"...in other words, I am having to manually add or delete said contacts before sending my email.
3) why can I not search the contacts to add new ones to my lists?
Your contacts for email is just really cumbersome

When you click "Contact Us" we actually get to contact someone at Yahoo with a problem. The FAQ's do not cover the help I need and I am sure I am not the first one.
When I try to reset my backup email address and I send a Key to it, my spam filter will not allow it, so I just need to know what address to unblock. Good grief help us out Yahoo!

I agree wholeheartedly with #1. It seems that Contacts has not been integrated into the new Yahoo mail. I suggest providing a version of all functionality updated to the new interface.

This isn't working for me so I suspect I'm doing something wrong.
Attempting to edit the contacts is about as frustrating an experience as I've ever had with Yahoo!
Changing a number or adding an email then saving doesn't bring you back to the address you were working on it takes you back to a 'space' somewhere adjacent to the address. Then when you scroll up to find the address you were editing you discover that there are now multiple numbers, emails, notes, nicknames - you name it, it's a mess!
And Yahoo! wonders whey people are migrating to Gmail. Sheesh.

How do I create a distribution list. Placed question on google and had a few suggestions but now there is no contact list so it seems can't be done.

Also the problem with the new Yahoo is when you are trying to email more than one person .. or even just one .. when you type the letter of their name (like I used to with the old yahoo) it still brings up their name but when I click on it it just puts ONLY the letter and not the email and of course the letter is RED because the letter itself is NOT an email address. What happened to when you click the contact name it puts it to the To or CC or BCC list? Not with the new yahoo. Good going Yahoo! You broke what worked!

Yes EXACTLY happening to me as well! Using Firefox and noticed emails in my list are also including my daughter's which should NOT be in MY contact list. I clicked on contacts and it brought me to the old yahoo which has ONLY MY contacts. So I can't fix it. This seems like a NEW YAHOO email issue. The NEW Yahoo sucks! It seems to add contacts to your contact list from your contact's contact list! That seems like a HUGE security issue to me! I don't want THEIR contacts as part of my life. I only want MY CONTACTS in MY contact list as I only contact people I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why can't I edit a group? I want to add contacts and can't figure out how.
