  1. "Select All" for Contact Lists

    When composing an email addressed to members in a "Contact List" there should be a button which allows you to "Select All".

  7. I understand that we are no longer allowed to categorize or sort email addresses in our address book anymore... Please return that feature.

    Without the sorting feature (being able to categorize or sort addresses in the contacts portion of Yahoo), my contacts list is a BIG MESS. Please return the ability to assign emails to categories. This is making us work much harder than before, which is NOT an "upgrade."

  9. Quick 'add contact option'

    Like Outlook. Please add quick access option to add contacts when one scrolls over the e-mail and generate a 'card' as a drop down. Have a very diffifult time copy and paste the e-mail address as it tends to high-light the whole 'card'.

  10. Add e-mail recipients to contacts.

    Please, add the option of outgoing e-mails to have the recipients added to contacts if the sender chooses. Usually there is a back-and-forth correspondence and the information would come in very handy.

    Very respectfully,

  11. get rid of deleted contacts as suggestions

    Once I delete a contact PLEASE don't let it be a popup suggestion when I am typing in names! Contacts that have changed emails and no longer use old ones are still popping up which means that I have to send to multiple contacts to make sure that I reach just 1 person, and then I received a bunch of error messages when those emails bounce back to me. GET RID OF DELETED CONTACT SUGGESTIONS!!

  12. New is Not Better

    Try inserting an incoming email address into the contact list and this proves conclusively how new is not better. From a first rate adding contacts system this latest version is a complete mess and does you no credit whatsoever. Also, whilst most welcome, the colour text option lacks a user default setting and always reverts to black - a child of 6 could do better...

  13. adding contact groups

    I need to create new contact groups at least once a year for a youth sports league. This new version does not support the creation of contact groups.
    I just had to revert to the old AND IT"S GOING AWAY AT THE END OF JANUARY.
    PLEASE make the new version useful and allow users to create contact groups.

  14. Autofill Fix

    Include a method to edit or add autofill contacts--not just delete them:
    The recipient line does not always autofill when typing a saved contact. This occurs most commonly with some new contacts that were readded after being removed contacts from autofill function.

  16. Suggest that New Mail is further improved from its version available 1August by:

    Suggest that New Mail is further improved from its version available 1August 2019 by: increasing the number of keystrokes required to check on the contents from 3 to 7 or any other undefined number. Till the latest version I only required 2 keystrokes. Now I need to search for "more info" with a 3rd keystroke. Heaven forbid that I should want to use the same surname again, well that requires a further 10 keystrokes to re-enter the searched name, typically 10 characters long, so the latest version increases the number of keystrokes from 2 to 13!
    Also, it appears that…

  17. classic works for my operating systen, the new format does not.

    Classic email works for me. The new version does not allow me to access my entire contact lest. I will have to find a new email provider.
