  1. Contacts hard to find, edit, alter, and delete

    Since the new changes it has become much more difficult to search and edit or delete a single contact. It would be very helpful if a dropdown menu were available to search by several choices such as ending email address or last name or company. partial name, with the ability to select the item and go to edit.

  2. full page contact list

    I hate the contact list now being shown on the right side and much prefer the previous full page contact list. Please bring back the full page list or at provide an option to select this version. Also, some of my contacts seem to have "mysteriously" disappeared.

  3. New contact management format - not goodl!

    As of 18 July 2019, you changed the way in which users can administer contact details. The new contact management is confusing and the layout does not give a good overview over contacts. Please return to the old format!

  8. Alphabetical Order

    In ALL (contacts) the list is in alphabetical order. In LISTS (contacts) the names are in random order. Alphabetical order has been used for hundreds of years to search. It's still the best way.

    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!

  13. 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

  14. 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…

  16. contacts gone

    All of my contacts have disappeared! ....including contacts inside lists. The lists are still there, but empty. I cannot create a new contact either by manual method or by adding one from an email. The "Add a contact" link is greyed out on the contact page.

    The import is missing in both yahoo.com and att.net mail accounts.

  20. 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).
