  1. Don't require an email address in Contacts

    Now that the new Contacts interface has been integrated with the latest Yahoo Mail, an email address is required to save a Contact. Why? I had lots of Contacts without email address for many years. Sometimes I just have a person's/business's phone number or I'm just storing info about them. I should not have to enter an email address in any Contact record.

  4. get rid of pop up on contacts page or allow to dismiss. It's blocking things I need.

    Get rid of pop up in lower left section of contacts page telling me to upgrade, or at least allow to dismiss. There are times it's blocking buttons I need to click. VERY ANNOYING!

  5. A week ago, I could forward/compose an email and click on CC/BCC and get the contacts in Last name order (as stored) now I can't. Fix it.

    Up until a week ago, when I forwarded/composed an e-mail and clicked on CC/BCC the Contacts pop-up showed in the order it was stored - in this case Last name order. Today, that order is ignored and the list comes up in First name order which is totally useless and no way to change it. Please fix that bug and stop calling it a "new, improved" feature. One does not always send an e-mail to everyone on the contact list but to certain groups of people, often by Last name (since you also support that for storing contacts, otherwise why…

  6. I want to be able again to save my contacts offline by pdf'ing them, like in the old version

    In the old version it was possible to save your contacts as a pdf, so they were easily accessible offline. At the same time that was a perfect back-up.
    The current export function doesn't support that feature anymore, and it's impossible to read that excel file. Also, in my language a lot of names do have hyphens and stuff, which are not supported.
    PLEASE BRING PDF POSSIBILITY BACK!!!

  8. Make the display are of Contact much larger. Allow line feeds (paragraphs) in Notes.

    The cramped area in which Contacts are displayed should be larger to make viewing and editing easier. Make the Notes section friendlier by allowing line feeds (paragraph format) to make notes easier to read.

  11. Please make it easier to find informations on how to witelist contacts emailaddresses.

    I would prefer if whitelisting would be connected right to the button that is showing all my contacts. By now its very hard to find informations on how to whitelist or even hard to manage the whitelisting.

  13. CONTACTS are now severely limited in functionalities

    The latest Yahoo mail severely limits the functionalities of contacts. Prior information already entered are not available because now only a few fields are left available. Additionally, export capabilities are now limited to CSV format. This does not allow proper export of foreign languages such as Chinese. Doing so would cause lost data / garbage. This is particularly frustrating because I have been a paid Yahoo Mail Pro user for almost two decades. Over the years, I have invested a lot of time to properly manage my contacts (which includes many Chinese characters). Now most of that work is lost.…

  17. Please re-enable the ability to search contacts based on the things that are in the notes. Thank you

    Please re-enable the ability to search contacts based on the things that are in the notes. When I search for a word which I now is in some of my contacts notes, it returns no hits. It always worked just fine in the old versions of Yahoo Mail. Thank you.

  19. Distribution list limited to 99 names

    Are distribution lists still limited to 99 contacts? The old version of the email program told me how many people were on my distribution list, but now I can't tell without counting them. Request #1: Please don't limit distribution lists to 99 contacts. I have 198 names on my movie list and I have to send two separate emails to reach them all. Request #2: Please let me see at a glance how many names are on each distribution list, especially important if we are still limited to 99 names.
