  1. What happened to my Yahoo Mail contacts?

    I went to send an email to someone, and typed the first letter of their name. In the past,this has always linked to their full address, as listed in my contacts. This time, it didn't. I tried several people, and it failed in each case. WHAT HAPPENED TO MY YAHOO CONTACTS? Now I've got to type in each person's e-mail address completely? Sometimes I send the same message to a dozen people! WHY ARE THE LISTED CONTACTS NOT COMPLETING THE E-MAIL ADDRESSES ANY MORE?!?!?!?

  3. When in a mailing list and one contact has two contact addresses, I have to copy and paste 2nd email to add to email.

    You should be able to click on both addresses to add to the "To" line when composing an email.

  5. contacts

    Contacts DO NOT POPULATE the "TO" line when you type the recipients name. The contact folder cannot be found in the new Yahoo Email design. When you click on the Contacts folder on the upper right it takes you completely back to the "Old" format. Clicking on the "TO" on the recipient line does NOT access the address book. What good is a new format for email that does NOT include my contacts. Basically the new format is incomplete and it SUCKS. I don't plan to use it anymore especially since several users have completely lost all of their contacts.…

  6. allow sender to be added to contacts easily.

    The old email allowed one to get that sender onto contact list. This new one needs that feature.

  7. The 'List' feature isn't working. When I want to type the start of a list I've created in the 'To:' field, the system doesn't recognize it.

    Please fix this issue. If you are going to make 'List' (a specific group of emails) an option, then please fix the issue. It's very inconvenient to have to type each individual in the 'To' field instead of using one of my 'Lists'.

  9. Artsy Fartsy Icons you put in front of my contacts list for cc,bcc or forward: How do I get rid of those. Totally annoying and distracting

  10. Auto generated card visible only to you - instructions needed. Current help and instructions are inaccurate.

    Auto generated card has wrong info showing and in the past I could change it by clicking on the 3 dots on the card. Those dots are gone and instructions for changing the information are inaccurate. Would love current instructions available.

  11. Need to copy and past the comprehensive e-mail address list from one e-mail to another?

    Title says it best. Receive an e-mail on a wide distribution list, and need to forward another e-mail to that listing. However, when attempting to copy and paste the e-mail lists from the received e-mail, it only copies the names, not the e-mail addresses! How dumb can you folks at Yahoo get?

  13. Remove top contacts from search bar

    I would love it if I could clear out my top contacts from the search bar within Mail. The ones listed are not even in my contact list.

  14. Be able to create new contacts on mobile

    In the current mobile app, there is no way to save a new contact. This is slightly frustrating, as while I do have a computer, I very rarely access my email with it, and not everyone has a computer to use to add new contacts. I would appreciate if this feature could be added to the app.

  16. It would be helpful if you could add the contacts from your email using a shortcut. As a small business user this function is very useful.

  18. When will you move the contact list to the new format. Hard to believe you left that out while spending time on setting up stupid colors.

  19. Please don't allow the adding of spam addresses to my address book.

    When someone sends me spam, I notice that the spam email address gets saved in my "auto complete." Please remove that feature --- if an email is SPAM, I don't want or need it ever, never, at all. Saving SPAM emails is unnecessary and borders on dangerous.

  20. Mobile Multi-contact Deleting

    Need the ability to delete more than one contact at a time in the app AND PC version of Yahoo Mail. The mobile one-at-a-time restriction is ridiculous.
