  1. Put back the add contacts from the email.

    It takes TOO MUCH TIME TO ADD ADDRESSES NOW.
    I have emails going to my trash folder and spam folder that should not be there.

  2. One click 'add sender to address book'

    So simple - add a one click means to add a sender's email address to address book. After all Yahoo/Oath/whoever is behind all this seem very adept at grabbing people's personal information for their own commercial purposes, why not for the sake of user functionality when wanting to grab a sender's address to add to one's address book?

  5. Manage or Import contacts using Contact list no longer functional in New Yahoo mail for Desktop- Please fix the bug

    In the new Yahoo mail for Desktop, few days back I was able to import, manage contacts in the contact list.
    But it looks like this feature is no longer there. Can you please bring this feature back where I can manage contact in the list (Add, remove, import using CSV) . This is a big setback for business and non profit group which should be addressed in timely fashion.

  6. Does Posting Here Do Any Good?

    Why did you change the format of the contacts? Mine were in alphabetical order by first name. They're not in alphabetical order any more . . only by first letter of the alphabet i.e."A:. They're in a cramped space to the right and I liked how they were shown before. Is there any reason for doing this? I would like to know. Please change it back.

  7. Contact History

    When entering a contact name, the historical email address takes precedence over a correctly edited and saved contact email address. Also, there seems to be no way to delete that historical email address that is no longer wanted and should not be used.

  9. Notes gone from contacts without email addresses

    Notes on contacts without email addresses are GONE. Made meticulous notes for many years on contacts without email addresses which are now GONE. Submitted this complaint to Yahoo Customercare and answer was “Unfortunately what you’re looking for isn’t possible in the current version.” They suggested contact you.
    Some of those notes are very important (like children contact info of elderly neighbors/friends). Other than elderly folks without email addresses, are many contacts without email addresses (i.e. pharmacy, take-out places, doctors). P-l-e-a-s-e fix before an emergency arises and I can’t make important calls.

  11. Why have you messed up Yahoo Basic?

    On the previous version of Yahoo Basic I could use my various contact lists to send emails. That feature has disappeared on the current version of Yahoo Basic which means if I want to send an email to 10 people who were on a specific contact list I now have to scroll through my ENTIRE contact list which is hundreds of people. There is no reason why this feature had to be deleted from this version of Yahoo Basic except, of course, to force people to use the new Yahoo Mail. Well it won't work. Goodbye Yahoo, hello Gmail or…

  13. mobile app does not have calender or contact list

    Hello All,
    The mobile app for Yahoo mail does not have or at least I could not find the calendar or contact list. As such I cannot synchronize the data from Yahoo on my laptop to my phone. All available workarounds are tedious to use leading to errors.
    Is there is fix for this issue.

  14. Why when I hit reply to a specific contact are you displaying a "business card" for them for several seconds? Get rid of it!

    Why are you displaying a business card for my contact when I reply to them? I already know them, get that card out of my way! It's useless!

  15. There is no way to automatically add contacts to yahoo mail

    Why can't I add contacts automatically from my emails?

    Yahoo says to do below, but there is no automatic add in the new yahoo mail.

    In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings menu icon Small gear icon | select Settings.
    Click Writing email.
    Select Automatically add new recipients to Contacts.
    - You can deselect this option if you change your mind.
    Click Save.

  16. Blocked Sender Feature Implementation

    Greetings dear Mail Support Team. I have three suggestions / inquiries regarding the block sender feature, considering the fact that I do not see a similar solution posted here on the feedback page. Currently I receive a large number of spam related emails and have noticed that my current “block sender option” allows me to block a sum total of one-thousand email addresses. I’d like to ask if it’d be possible to increase this number to either unlimited or a significantly higher number instead please? If it is not yet possible, I would like to ask if there will be…

  18. Allow to Copy email address from existing email

    Please allow us to copy email address from an old email to send a new one. The current version of yahoo mail don't allow us to do so though the basic version allows.

    This is really an important feature for email user. This time I always have to hit forward button>copy address>delete the mail from draft folder.... This is very tiring. Please fix this ASAP.

  20. Stop requesting access to my contacts

    In the android mobile mail app, it repeatedly asks me, "Allow access to contacts". I can only respond "Not now", but it will continue to come up every time I open the app. Please add a feature that allows me stop the app from asking

    I know this is a 'repeat' of this: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/600772-new-mail/suggestions/34447276-stop-requesting-access-to-my-contacts

    But I reject your justification. You want to ostensibly want to "help with composing emails". But I do not want your help and I refuse to give you more information to sell. And don't pretend that isn't the real reason: If it was about making a…
