  1. Allow sorting of contacts by last name, employer, location, etc

    Allow sorting of contacts by last name, employer, location, etc. I can't BELIEVE that Yahoo was STUPID enough to remove contact sorting by last name. Also, a lot of my contacts disappeared with the new contact format.

  2. Former CONTACTS was much BETTER and User Friendly

    TOO SLOW also NOT convenient, cannot ADD "ADDITIONAL or MORE INFORMATION" to the "CONTACTS", just NAME and EMAIL...NO Birthday/Address/Phone/Notes/Business Info/Other Emails/Website, etc...When you guys make changes and/or create "NEW Yahoo Mail UPGRADES"...You guys seem to SKIP or FORGET Important "DETAILS"...Like NOT thoroughly thought through or more like HALF-ASSED...Yahoo! Used to be WONDERFUL FOR MANY YEARS...then...lately...DOWN THE TUBES!!!...What happened??? I really prefer the OLDER VERSION,
    this one SUCKS and SLOW!!!...

  3. Stop automatically adding to contacts the addresses of email I send.

    There used to be an option to automatically add or not an address for the person you are sending an email too. This is no longer an option. Frustrating as I constantly need to delete unimportant contacts..

  5. Contacts and filter - Yahoo needs to work on the yahoo mail usabiliy

    Problems with Yahoo user friendliness


    1. Contacts: Unable to disable automatically adding contacts from emails to contacts list:
      This is a problem because I don’t want all the vendors and everyone cc’ed on an email added to my contacts list. It makes the contacts list unusable because there are so many names to weed through.

    2. Contacts: Unable to delete contacts in bulk. There are so many outdated contacts in the contacts folder. To delete each contact manually requires about 4 clicks. This is unnecessarily burdensome. It makes contacts unusable for the reason stated above.

    3. Contacts: There is no way to sort…

  7. how to sort contacts by last name

    Please permit listing contacts by last name alphabetically - especially the list that pops up when forwarding a message and clicking on "To" or "CC" or "BCC"- PLEASE - I am on bended knee praying for last name listing of Contacts

  9. Allow alphabetizing a list by last name .

    Allow Alphabetizing contacts in a list by last name. First name is illogical.

  11. Alphabetizing the contact list, and the other lists, would be helpful. Not many of us have memorized email addresses.

    Alphabetizing the contact list, and other lists, by the last name ould be helpful. Having the contacts alphabetized by emails is not helpful at all.

  13. The new contact list email setup is absolutely WORTHLESS!!!!! The old way was better. CHANGE IT BACK

    Put it back the way it was. When I pull an address from the to field to put it in the BCC field it used to disappear from the to field and now it doesn't. FIX IT

  14. Contacts should stay on the main mail page.

    It's mail. I shouldn't have to open up a new browser tab.

  15. Ability to sort email contacts by last name. It's now a safety issue!

    Email contacts in Yahoo mail NEED the ability to be sorted by last name. I understand that younger users and really older users only need the first name. In this age of Corona Virus it is actually a SAFETY ISSUE not being able to do this. Somebody on your list as Robert Smith could be listed under "r" for Robert, or "b" for Bob at opposite ends of the alphabet. Yahoo needs to be viable for professionals as well as high school students and senior citizens.

  16. NO NO NO!!!!!

    We don't want "quick contacts" This is not an improvement.

    Just give us what we want! PLEASE!!!
    I don't understand. Are you all < 18? > 80?

    Do you not pay 1 second of attention to what your PAYING customers are saying? What the heck is going on at Yahoo??

  17. Hot Idea

    PLEASE, PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLD WAY! Your TECHIES have ruined this format. You cannot find ANYTHING such as contacts, editing, navigating around the email. There are dead ends all over this new format. Get the CONTACTS back the way it was. The side view is terrible. 90% of my contacts are missing. "If it ain't broke, DON'T replace it!"

  19. KEEP THE FORMER METHOD OF ADDING NEW CONTACTS

    Keep The Former Method For Adding New Contacts
    It was easy to add new contacts when all I had to do was scroll over the new email address and click on Add Contact. A window opened with the name and email address already there. Yahoo Mail is starting to look more like Gmail. That is not an improvement. I receive emails from new people almost daily. Please keep the good features you had and make it better from there. When you discontinue a useful feature you are creating more work and inconvenience for the people who are using the tools…
