    Moving the 'contacts' icon from the left hand side to the right hand is a real technological improvement. Keep up the good work of fixing stuff that isn't wrong. (You've been taking lessons from microsloth is my guess).

  3. contacts icon needs improvement

    In the current design/layout of the mail home page, one searches like mad for the "contacts"-function. The minute icon with a rectangle and three dots on the right does not stand out as THE icon for contacts.
    All right, once found it is there, but this certainlay deserves improvement .

  4. To field doesn't offer my contacts, but everyone I've ever replied to!!!!!!!!

    I have 3 people in my contacts list. When I click "To" it offers everybody I've ever replied to from my community lists but NOT MY CONTACTS. This is why Yahoo is my junk email, not my name one.

  5. Remove or change the contact card system

    The contact card system can pick up bad info from social sites and you have no way to control what others see. Everyone should be able to completely control their card and any changes they make should take place anywhere the card is located.

  6. I spent an hour trying to find my contacts list. It should be posted on the left menu bar for easy access.

    Post the Contact link on the left menu bar for easy access. It's really hard to find it and if you click out, it's difficult remembering how you got there in the first place.

  7. Integration of Contacts into Email Interface

    As you work on updating Contacts to be more modern, as you have with Mail, please consider the following functions.
    - copy an email address from within a received email To, CC, BC without having to highlight and hover
    - page to enter more info on a new contact so that when you receive an email from a new contact you can generate a contact reference to include address and phone number
    - ability to add a new contact to a group from within the mail interface, allowing the ability to manage lists and groups without having to navigate away…

  8. Large contact list maintenance support function

    I have a fairly large personal contact file (700+) that is a pain to maintain and for which there are no good tools. There are two issues.
    (1) I've been a YAHOO mail user since dinosaurs roamed the earth and although I occasionally purge contacts, I still end up with >1 address for many people as they change email addresses.

    (2) There are also a few addresses that no longer work for contacts that I may not have another address for, so undeliverable. Not as big a problem as (1), but still an issue.

    A solution.

    A single solution via…

  13. Sort contacts by date added

    Add the ability to manage contacts by date added. This will allow for easy way to delete old ones. I, for example, added thousands of contacts years ago when importing some business related contacts. I have no need for these contacts now. With this feature, people will be able to clean up their contacts easier and make it better in creating lists.

  16. Lists for Basic.

    I am being forced back to “Basic” email as I have an XP operating system. I need the ability to use my “lists” of grouped email contacts. I send out dog rescue run sheets to groups of people at once. I was able to do that before but now not on the basic email. Can you PLEASE add use of lists to the basic version. I believe I’m paying for Pro Lots of people still use XP. Thank you.

  17. Enable us to change sender's display name on incoming email - their name, not ours

    I receive emails from 'info', or 'customer service', or 'Bob', or other unidentifiable/common names, and want to be able to personalise regular/important contacts so their email display name is meaningful to me. I thought saving them as a Contact would mean the Name would be displayed, but they didn't work. Also tried editing the e-contact card...no luck. The Nickname seems an obvious choice to me - I imagine lots of people would want to identify incoming mail by the nickname they've given their contact, but that didn't work either.

    I know the official procedure is to ask them to change…

  18. Create New Contact by clicking on email address in an email

    You should be able to create a new contact by clicking on the email address in an email. You should be able to right click on an email address in an email and select an option to quickly add the email address as a new contact. Right now it is wayyy toooo many steps to add a new contact. I shouldn't have to cut and paste to get this simple job done...... Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting Yahoo.

    I do understand that you are facing issue with adding contacts in Yahoo mail on android.

    Unfortunately, what you're looking for isn't possible in the current version of the product. I can see how that'd be useful, though.

    You should post your suggestion to add that function on our feedback forum. Our product teams review the posts and look for ideas to include in future releases.

    However, you can add the new contacts on Yahoo mail desktop version and it the changes will reflect in your Yahoo mail android.

    This may not be the most…
