At the bottom of the page for each new contact there used to be a spot to "Add to Lists" or Add to Groups"
Please bring it back. Since you have changed your format, I have NO idea how to add someone to any of my Lists / Groups: Car Club, HOA, Therapy Dogs, Send Slideshows to Hiking Club, etc.

PLEASE listen to her--and to others. Your CONTACTS section on the old Classic Mail was wonderful. Easy to add to, edit, delete and create and add to lists. This new version is awful.

I agree with everything Veletia Manning has said. The new contacts system isn't a patch on the old one, so please could you give us the option to revert back to the old system until you manage to resolve ALL the MANY issues with the new one.

do you answer any of the comments?
Auto fill on an e-mail is very helpful, BUT when it fills in an old incorrect address instead of the new corrected address that’s in your address book it’s not helpful. I’ve sent Yahoo Help a screen shot showing where this is happening. Make what’s in your address book the default for auto fill.
I’ve been using Yahoo for my e-mail for years now & it used to be quite simple, but every time you update it, or change its platform / format (whatever the Geek term is) it get more complicated & harder to use, less efficient & takes more time. Please: Remember the “KISS” method. (Keep it simple Stupid)
Your address book frequently “eats names” especially last names. The person’s first name is left (Jane) but her last name (Doe) has disappeared numerous times. Even after rebooting the computer names still disappear.
John Doe is missing. I just happened to think, I’ll bet Yahoo’s address book ate his last name again & it’s under the “J’s” for John, instead of D’s for Doe. Just checked – that’s exactly what happened & only John is there. His last name is missing AGAIN! Then I sent Yahoo help an email with a screen shot showing it wouldn’t let me edit this contact. Only delete was highlighted. Time: 5:13PM 12-16-2020 MT
Address book entries: Listing the first 4 most frequently used contacts first - followed by all others is very confusing & time consuming when trying to find a person quickly. Hiding names under (21) more is also a nuisance and slows down the process of looking for a contact by leaps & bounds. Again please use the KISS method. "Keep it Simple Stupid". Stop burying things!
“Sort” with a down arrow: “Newest on top”, “Oldest on top” etc. Suggestion: when a user, such as myself, makes MY CHOICE make my choice permeate instead of going back to yahoo’s default every time. Same thing in your address book: If I, the user, choose to have my contacts listed by last name first, please let that stand instead of reverting back to Yahoo’s default constantly of first names first.
