Fix Adding Contacts to Lists in Yahoo New Mail
Expand Manage Contacts in Yahoo New Mail, to add the ability to add an existing contact to a previously established "List". This feature is available in Yahoo Classic but not in Yahoo New Mail.

Yahoo needs to fix this immediately. What are you thinking. Using email Lists is extremely important. I cannot figure out how to add existing contacts to a list!!
All the following used to exist in the previous version of Yahoo Mail. Now,
There is no way to see which Group List a contact belongs to via the Contact list.
When creating a contact, there is no way to add them to a Group List at the same time.
There is no way to add a contact to multiple Group Lists at one time.
There is no to tell if a contact already exists in your Contact list from emails.
There is no way to add a new contact directly from e-mails.
There is still no way to list all contacts that are unfiled (not assigned to any Group list).
If any of this still exists, it is not obvious. Really cripples using Yahoo Mail like before.
Please restore functionality!
How do I add a new contact to a folder????
I cannot figure out how to add a contact to an existing list.
I didn't have any problem accomplishing this task. Seems to work.
Removing the feature to Manage Contacts in Yahoo New Mail was a very Bad idea. You have made it a complete hassle to use yahoo mail. It is NOT user friendly or efficient anymore. I have select groups of people or organizations I need to send specific emails. Instead, I have to manually type each and every email address to a group of recipients. This is a total waste of time. Very unhappy with the New Mail system.

After several emails with Yahoo's help people about this very issue, this is what I received back: "It looks like we've provided all the information we can regarding this issue. Because of this, we can't provide any additional assistance at this time.'
Wow! great customer service!

I totally agree. I use lists with my contacts so that I can send out emails to a group of people at once and don't need to add them each individually. It looks like the new version only allows you to select your old lists, but not to add or delete people from them. This is very disheartening and should be an easy fix to allow us to add and delete people from lists, as well as add new lists to our address books.
