  1. Can't add sender's email address to contact list

    Please retain the function of adding the new sender's email address to our contact list. Now only Yahoo mail can't do it compare to hotmail, outlook and gmail.

  2. I am finding it difficult to add new email addresses to my lists - it was much easier on the old Yahoo

    Make the whole mail system more user friendly, especially adding and deleting email addresses.

  3. print contact list

    Please give us a way to print our contact list. Selfishly this would be beneficial for myself and truthfully may be for others as well.

  5. Add the ability to duplicate an existing contact list

    The old Yahoo Mail had the ability to create a duplicate of an existing contact list, and then edit/revise it. YOU HAVE REMOVED THIS ESSENTIAL FEATURE. I cannot understand why you would do that.

    I have a new list I wish to create. An old list contains 95% of the contacts I wish to have in the new list. Yet, in order to do that, it appears I must 1) export my ENTIRE contact list, 2) edit that list using Excel or other spreadsheet tool (reducing 3000 contacts to 90, which is incredibly time-consuming), and then 3) import the revised…

  6. contact list

    Restore the one-click 'auto fill to contact list' when you were reading an email. It was nice that it allowed you to decide if you wanted to add them to you contact list, and then had to 'do a positive action' to make it happen. You had this function in your Classic Mail, but the new mail does not. Now you have to type everything and watch out for typo !!

  8. sending emails to contacts in the contact list

    Please put back the capability of going to an individual contact list. Then checking specific contacts in the contact list and sending one or multiple individuals in that contact list an email. Your current system of using the contact list is horrible. Additionally when I remove a contact from the contact list. I do not want to continually see the old email address that was removed every time I sent that individual an email. It is confusing and causes you to have to verify the correct email address. Thank You.

  10. Your Contacts area is horrible.

    You need to go back to the old system for contacts.
    It does not allow easy editing, easy to read notes, it is difficult to control the lists.

    I use Yahoo for my work and honestly I'm looking for an alternative because the bulk of your changes are not user friendly and are just horrible. I need to now find an alternative way to keep my client listing of contact info because yours is so bad.
    If it is not fixed by the end of the year I may have to say goodbye to Yahoo.

  11. RE: *NOXIOUS* autogenerated card/Contacts: Give me business card details, not Yahoo's prurient data mining statistics

    Yahoo's 'autogenerated card'. Where's the business card-type data?

    You know...Name, Address. Phone Number. e-Mail address. Website. Or maybe Yahoo doesn't know what's on a business card? Do you?

    I suggest Yahoo's designers drop into the nearest insurance office or car repair shop or hairdresser--they still use business cards--Those old-fashioned pieces of paper that display data (see above) which make it easy for someone to contact a business...or person

    Frankly, the usage statistics which Yahoo now proudly displays on our screen are CREEPY. Yes, we know you're sucking up the tiniest details of our lives, manipulating them & selling them to…

  12. Some of My friends changed their email address. now when I want to send them email, all the previous emails (even from 3 years ago) appear

    Some of My friends changed their email address. now when I want to send them email, all the previous addresses (even from 3 years ago) appear in "TO" section suggestion list. Then I get confused that which Address is the working one!; So I have to send email to all previous and recent addresses of my friend or write all the addresses on a paper and check my contact book to see what is the working one!!!! why I can not delete an address from the suggestions? I think it is much better that you provide suggestion from last one…

    You have mixed my personal contacts from my cell phone in with another email account we have. I don't recall asking to have personal contacts mixed with our Yahoo account contacts.

  17. In my contacts list yahoo put a default icon beside each contact. It is distracting & irrevelant to the contact. Remove them please.

    Please remove the default icons that yahoo places beside each contact in my contact list. The icons are distracting & irrevelant to the contacts. Or, at least give me the option to turn OFF that feature.

  18. Sync Windows 10 New Yahoo Contacts with iPhone and iPad Contacts

    Since the recent changes, any NEW Contacts I set up on my Windows 10 computer no longer sync with my iPhone 6 or iPad. Only existing contacts sync.

    I contacted Support and followed their instructions to delete and re-install the Yahoo Mail app but this did not help. When I contacted them again, they said it may not be possible to sync to iPhone or iPad. At least, I think that's what they meant: "We understand that you would like to see the contacts on the iPhone device, however currently due to the feature of contact is still under development,…
