  2. CSV contact import is missing

    Contact CSV export works properly. Unable to locate the "File import" button to re-import them, per: per https://help.yahoo.com/kb/att/new-mail-for-desktop/import-export-contacts-yahoo-mail-sln28832.html
    The import is missing in both yahoo.com and att.net mail accounts.

  3. can't add contacts - fill in name - 'enter' = blank - go to contact list

    I type in name, but there is no place to put the address. 'Save' merely returns to E-Mail, without adding anything.

  4. Keep contacts in alphabetical order

    Thank you for allowing sorting by last name. Please allow it to stay that way. Every time I sign in I have to change it from sorting by first name to sorting by last name.

  5. Inport csv

    This new version of mail does not allow for import of a csv file. It only allows from social media or other email types. Please put back the ability to import csv files. I could do it 2 weeks ago. Today is 8/22/2019.

  7. CONTACTS

    PLEASE fix this: (1) Why do I have to work in a scrunched up 2 inch side bar to work in contacts. If I click Contacts, give me an expanded area to work. (2) ADDRESSES need a second "street" line; many addresses are more than 3 lines; (3) PHONES need capability of Mobile His and Mobile Hers; couples have more than one phone; (4) STOP closing the "add" or "edit" function without saving if we mistakenly press the "enter" key; then we have to start all over again; (5) NOTES give us some formatting ability here: presently it just puts…

  9. Can't view contacts details, only unasked-for past emails

    Yet another unwelcome yahoo feature rammed down our throats on an old Windows platform. Now contacts show beside the new inbox. Good idea.

    But how can I view all my contact info, addresses, ALT phone numbers etc.? Clicking on a contact only gives a string of previous emails, not all contact details. Instead of blocking access to valuable infot, please bring back ability to view and edit all details of a given contact, not the incomplete function now interfering.

  10. Spam filter is way too strong! Once I click this is not spam, your filter rule should change!

    Once I click not spam, your filter should remove it from spam. Why is this so difficult?

  14. 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…

  16. My contact list is missing? What is going on? I can't create a new one.

    Yesterday I went to write a message to a contact and up popped a message that there are no contacts. What is going on? I have two separate e-mail accounts and I now show that there are no contacts in either. Unfortunately, I never printed a list of my contacts so I have no way of contacting my people to let them know or to resend their contact information. I have loved Yahoo for many years but this is forcing to rethink maybe moving to another provider. Maybe that is what Yahoo wants? I want my contact list back and…

  17. Contact lists hard to manage

    Bring back the old contact format. If I want to add multiple people to a contact list, I can no longer do that. I have to type out each contact that I want to add to a list. That means I better know every person in my address book. What used to take less than 1 minute to do now takes at least 10 minutes, depending on how many people I'm trying to add to my list.
