  1. Why have you messed up Yahoo Basic?

    On the previous version of Yahoo Basic I could use my various contact lists to send emails. That feature has disappeared on the current version of Yahoo Basic which means if I want to send an email to 10 people who were on a specific contact list I now have to scroll through my ENTIRE contact list which is hundreds of people. There is no reason why this feature had to be deleted from this version of Yahoo Basic except, of course, to force people to use the new Yahoo Mail. Well it won't work. Goodbye Yahoo, hello Gmail or…

  3. mobile app does not have calender or contact list

    Hello All,
    The mobile app for Yahoo mail does not have or at least I could not find the calendar or contact list. As such I cannot synchronize the data from Yahoo on my laptop to my phone. All available workarounds are tedious to use leading to errors.
    Is there is fix for this issue.

    Regards

  7. Why when I hit reply to a specific contact are you displaying a "business card" for them for several seconds? Get rid of it!

    Why are you displaying a business card for my contact when I reply to them? I already know them, get that card out of my way! It's useless!

  8. There is no way to automatically add contacts to yahoo mail

    Why can't I add contacts automatically from my emails?

    Yahoo says to do below, but there is no automatic add in the new yahoo mail.

    In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings menu icon Small gear icon | select Settings.
    Click Writing email.
    Select Automatically add new recipients to Contacts.
    - You can deselect this option if you change your mind.
    Click Save.

  9. Blocked Sender Feature Implementation

    Greetings dear Mail Support Team. I have three suggestions / inquiries regarding the block sender feature, considering the fact that I do not see a similar solution posted here on the feedback page. Currently I receive a large number of spam related emails and have noticed that my current “block sender option” allows me to block a sum total of one-thousand email addresses. I’d like to ask if it’d be possible to increase this number to either unlimited or a significantly higher number instead please? If it is not yet possible, I would like to ask if there will be…

  11. Allow to Copy email address from existing email

    Please allow us to copy email address from an old email to send a new one. The current version of yahoo mail don't allow us to do so though the basic version allows.

    This is really an important feature for email user. This time I always have to hit forward button>copy address>delete the mail from draft folder.... This is very tiring. Please fix this ASAP.

  13. Stop requesting access to my contacts

    In the android mobile mail app, it repeatedly asks me, "Allow access to contacts". I can only respond "Not now", but it will continue to come up every time I open the app. Please add a feature that allows me stop the app from asking

    I know this is a 'repeat' of this: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/600772-new-mail/suggestions/34447276-stop-requesting-access-to-my-contacts

    But I reject your justification. You want to ostensibly want to "help with composing emails". But I do not want your help and I refuse to give you more information to sell. And don't pretend that isn't the real reason: If it was about making a…

  14. Don't require an email address in Contacts

    Now that the new Contacts interface has been integrated with the latest Yahoo Mail, an email address is required to save a Contact. Why? I had lots of Contacts without email address for many years. Sometimes I just have a person's/business's phone number or I'm just storing info about them. I should not have to enter an email address in any Contact record.

  17. get rid of pop up on contacts page or allow to dismiss. It's blocking things I need.

    Get rid of pop up in lower left section of contacts page telling me to upgrade, or at least allow to dismiss. There are times it's blocking buttons I need to click. VERY ANNOYING!

  18. A week ago, I could forward/compose an email and click on CC/BCC and get the contacts in Last name order (as stored) now I can't. Fix it.

    Up until a week ago, when I forwarded/composed an e-mail and clicked on CC/BCC the Contacts pop-up showed in the order it was stored - in this case Last name order. Today, that order is ignored and the list comes up in First name order which is totally useless and no way to change it. Please fix that bug and stop calling it a "new, improved" feature. One does not always send an e-mail to everyone on the contact list but to certain groups of people, often by Last name (since you also support that for storing contacts, otherwise why…

  19. I want to be able again to save my contacts offline by pdf'ing them, like in the old version

    In the old version it was possible to save your contacts as a pdf, so they were easily accessible offline. At the same time that was a perfect back-up.
    The current export function doesn't support that feature anymore, and it's impossible to read that excel file. Also, in my language a lot of names do have hyphens and stuff, which are not supported.
    PLEASE BRING PDF POSSIBILITY BACK!!!
