  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  8. Address Book - Deleting Old E-mail Addresses but keep coming back

    I am getitng frustrated with old e-mail addresses coming back to my Contacts after I deleted them. Some people changed their e-mail address, I deleted them and they keep coming back. I have the correct settings too for that as well.

  9. No way to edit contact details

    There are two screenshots below to prove this.

    The first attached screenshot, which is green, is what I see whenever I navigate to Yahoo Mail in "Google Chrome" for Windows 10. As you will note, that window has no Contacts icon and no way to edit contacts. If I select "Compose" & "To", it generates a list of contacts but does not allow editing of those entries.

    If I can somehow through trial-and-error, reach the point of seeing the attached, blue-coloured screenshot, after 5 minutes of tinkering, and I save the "mail view" window as a bookmark, the generated link…

  11. Make contact updates immediate

    When I add contacts to a group they should be available immediately when used in a new or forwarded email. Changes to contacts should also be immediate. I have added new contacts to a list, but they do not appear when I use that list.

  12. this mew version is much to combersam , besides I have two e-mail addresses, where new contacts are supposed to go automaticly into both whi

    when I add a new contact it is supposed to go to both my e-mail addresses. When I print my addresses not all of them get printed, they are there in one of my e-mail address book but are skipped in printing, this is a lot of waste on paper and ink. Besides I cant access all addresses in my second e-mail address.

  13. Get rid of related contacts automatically appearing when forwarding mail

    Turn off related contacts appearing automatically when only forwarding an email to an individual. This is a nuisance. Probably was suggested by someone to lazy to go to contacts. Get rid of it. It's a PAIN

  14. where is my contact

    If you are encouraging people to use the new mail, then you should put the contacts in the new view. When we access contacts, it puts us back to the old mail. Why both using the new one then? This is very annoying!

  18. substantially

    why is there no 'contacts' page on the new yahoo mail? there is on the old yahoo. i have to go back and forth between the new yahoo and the old one to be able to access my contacts. this makes the new yahoo incomplete. and this is wrong.

  19. Larger recipient limit

    Yahoo mail should allow more recipients for one email. This is something that's been bothering me for a while. Why limit it to 100? I am involved in regularly communicating with large groups of people (not spam), but the 100 recipient limit is an annoyance.

  20. email addresses in 'boxes'

    Having the email addresses go into the little boxes means, to correct an error, I have to retype the whole thing.

    Get rid of the stupid boxes and let me type the address in like any other typing.
