  3. deleting contacts is a huge pain. scrolling through many contacts that i had years and years ago and manually deleting them takes time

    Ability to sort contacts by date added and the select box to the left and then mass delete contacts. Would give the option to delete dark data from yahoo servers to the individual. Alternatively, delete all contacts and then upload only new contacts via vcards through an email to yourself.

  4. Why do I see my email page get smaller and have the contact to my right without a choice? Leave the service alone before I leave the service

    Leave the email service alone...the new moves your making cause a distraction and a waste of time

  6. sorting contacts and add the number of contacts in a list.

    Please add sorting by first name and last name. Also, the i need to see how many people are in my lists. a counter would be extremely helpful.

  7. delete contacts

    My list of contacts on my mobile is enormous and I have not added most of them. This feature must have been built in and as yet there is no way to delete multiple contacts. I find this very annoying and if it is not solved soon I shall be deleting my email address and go with another provider.

  8. contact card

    There is no way to hover over an e-mail address and 'Add' or 'Edit' contacts as in the old system.

    In the old system the contact card had three dots, if you hovered over you could 'Add' or 'Edit. In the new system there is no menu on the contact card. It just says 'Auto generated card visible only to you'.

    This makes it extremely inconvenient to add new contacts and is the main reason I'm not switching.

  9. CONTACT SEARCH DIFFICULTIES

    cannot add a new contact unless we have email address. Some clients do not have email addresses. This is totally ridiculous. So therefore we cannot keep contact numbers. please change this - email should not
    be mandatory to add a contact

  10. Put back the add contacts from the email.

    It takes TOO MUCH TIME TO ADD ADDRESSES NOW.
    I have emails going to my trash folder and spam folder that should not be there.

  11. One click 'add sender to address book'

    So simple - add a one click means to add a sender's email address to address book. After all Yahoo/Oath/whoever is behind all this seem very adept at grabbing people's personal information for their own commercial purposes, why not for the sake of user functionality when wanting to grab a sender's address to add to one's address book?

  16. Manage or Import contacts using Contact list no longer functional in New Yahoo mail for Desktop- Please fix the bug

    In the new Yahoo mail for Desktop, few days back I was able to import, manage contacts in the contact list.
    But it looks like this feature is no longer there. Can you please bring this feature back where I can manage contact in the list (Add, remove, import using CSV) . This is a big setback for business and non profit group which should be addressed in timely fashion.

  17. Does Posting Here Do Any Good?

    Why did you change the format of the contacts? Mine were in alphabetical order by first name. They're not in alphabetical order any more . . only by first letter of the alphabet i.e."A:. They're in a cramped space to the right and I liked how they were shown before. Is there any reason for doing this? I would like to know. Please change it back.

  18. Contact History

    When entering a contact name, the historical email address takes precedence over a correctly edited and saved contact email address. Also, there seems to be no way to delete that historical email address that is no longer wanted and should not be used.

  20. Notes gone from contacts without email addresses

    Notes on contacts without email addresses are GONE. Made meticulous notes for many years on contacts without email addresses which are now GONE. Submitted this complaint to Yahoo Customercare and answer was “Unfortunately what you’re looking for isn’t possible in the current version.” They suggested contact you.
    Some of those notes are very important (like children contact info of elderly neighbors/friends). Other than elderly folks without email addresses, are many contacts without email addresses (i.e. pharmacy, take-out places, doctors). P-l-e-a-s-e fix before an emergency arises and I can’t make important calls.
