  1. Location of Contacts list icon

    Location of contacts list in Yahoo Mail Pro. I never full screen my mail, so menus on the far right are never visible to me, and I can not access my contacts list. The contacts list and calendar need to be either in the top menu bar or in the right hand menu bar along with the inbox etc. I never use the notepad so I don't care where it goes.

  2. "More or Less" in contact listing. WHAT IS THE POINT>?

    Remove the "feature" that hides contact names, but reveals them if the arrow (1 more, 2 more, etc) is clicked. THere is no reason for this and it is annoying. Why cannot contacts be eliminated. I'm tired of looking at names of deceased people (it's been a rough year!). Please stop improving things... it's only making an already big mess bigger.

  6. contact list on tablet

    Please make contact lists available on the tablet format. I use my lists often when using my computer/browser and really miss this capability when using my tablet.

  8. Accommodating contacts who have no email addresses

    Many, many people actually do not have an email address.
    We need that possibility for adding people and even businesses where the email address is not know or does not even exist. This is a show-stopper./

  9. automatic pick up of e mail address in addition to the typed one should not be allowed

    while a person wants to send e mail to one address only a second address should not appear automatically in the same line or in other words only one address in a line and any additional address should appear as copy to only.

  11. "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".

  13. contact phone number formatting

    Phone number format should be (NPA) NXX-XXXX
    Do NOT remove the parens or the dashes when I enter a number.
    The are there for readability.

  17. 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."

  19. 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'.

  20. 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,
