  1. Quick 'add contact option'

    Like Outlook. Please add quick access option to add contacts when one scrolls over the e-mail and generate a 'card' as a drop down. Have a very diffifult time copy and paste the e-mail address as it tends to high-light the whole 'card'.

  2. Add e-mail recipients to contacts.

    Please, add the option of outgoing e-mails to have the recipients added to contacts if the sender chooses. Usually there is a back-and-forth correspondence and the information would come in very handy.

    Very respectfully,

  3. get rid of deleted contacts as suggestions

    Once I delete a contact PLEASE don't let it be a popup suggestion when I am typing in names! Contacts that have changed emails and no longer use old ones are still popping up which means that I have to send to multiple contacts to make sure that I reach just 1 person, and then I received a bunch of error messages when those emails bounce back to me. GET RID OF DELETED CONTACT SUGGESTIONS!!

  4. New is Not Better

    Try inserting an incoming email address into the contact list and this proves conclusively how new is not better. From a first rate adding contacts system this latest version is a complete mess and does you no credit whatsoever. Also, whilst most welcome, the colour text option lacks a user default setting and always reverts to black - a child of 6 could do better...

  5. adding contact groups

    I need to create new contact groups at least once a year for a youth sports league. This new version does not support the creation of contact groups.
    I just had to revert to the old AND IT"S GOING AWAY AT THE END OF JANUARY.
    PLEASE make the new version useful and allow users to create contact groups.

  6. Autofill Fix

    Include a method to edit or add autofill contacts--not just delete them:
    The recipient line does not always autofill when typing a saved contact. This occurs most commonly with some new contacts that were readded after being removed contacts from autofill function.

  8. Suggest that New Mail is further improved from its version available 1August by:

    Suggest that New Mail is further improved from its version available 1August 2019 by: increasing the number of keystrokes required to check on the contents from 3 to 7 or any other undefined number. Till the latest version I only required 2 keystrokes. Now I need to search for "more info" with a 3rd keystroke. Heaven forbid that I should want to use the same surname again, well that requires a further 10 keystrokes to re-enter the searched name, typically 10 characters long, so the latest version increases the number of keystrokes from 2 to 13!
    Also, it appears that…

  12. Groups

    THE GROUPS should carry over NOT just the contacts! I have 1200 contacts in 50+ groups. I don't have time to make new groups! I took me over a decade to make the groups! I'm an international touring musician -- groups by countries and regions and who is in management, hospitality, press, recording, education, etc... WTF???

  13. Adding new contacts to a group

    There needs to be a simple way for me to paste a bunch of email addresses into a new group. The contact page is way too complicated. Keep it simple!

  15. Need option to permanently delete history of permanently deleted contacts/e-mails

    Even after permanently deleting a contact as well as ALL related e-mails- a record still exists of that contact and message history...bad for a new marriage!

  17. when addressing emails contact list displays only 2 or 3 contacts while old version displayed 5 or 6. Can't expand window to display more.

    Previous version displayed 5-6 contacts at a time to choose from while addressing emails. This displays only 2-3 at a time. Unable to expand window to display more. Very slow, time consuming, cumbersome and frustrating!

  18. Gentlemen:

    Gentlemen:
    For years, I've had my contacts sorted alphabetically by LAST name. For some reason, you've changed them and now they are sorted alphabetically by FIRST name. I much prefer alpha by LAST name, and I'd like for you to correct the situation. We can put a man on the moon, and you're capable of hacking into my computer and having your way with it. So, I'm confident you're able to accommodate my request. I'm not sure why you feel compelled to fix something that isn't broke. Although some have the mindset that if something isn't broke, lets fix it…

  19. undo deleted auto suggest email contacts

    So, I "x"ed out some emails that were auto-suggested while entering contacts. I have a large group of people and the ones I have to email weekly varies. I did not realize that "x"ing them out would mean they never get suggested again-- I thought I was just removing them as options for that one message. Now many are missing and it looks like they have been deleted altogether! You need to have a way to undo this as it's way too easy to accidentally delete a contact.
