    Hi there,

    Our engineers are working on incorporating Contacts into the new format. We appreciate your patience while we work on this.

    In the meantime, you can access contacts by clicking on the icon on the upper right side (small icon made up of a rectangle with three small stacked squares). This will open Contacts in a new tab of your browser in the Classic Mail look. You can also access your contacts via https://contacts.yahoo.com.

    Thank you!

  2. Where are the contacts?

    Every time I try to access my contacts, the mail system opens a new window and takes me back to the old version of Yahoo. This is very annoying.

    Also, something weird has been happening with my mail lists. I haven't changed a thing, but suddenly one of my longer list is missing about 30 addresses. I just tried to send out an email to one of my lists with about 10 people on it. Only 5 people actually received the email, despite me very carefully checking to see that I had clicked on the appropriate email list. Again, very…

  4. contacts

    I send out mass emails. I am always taken back to the old Yahoo. Why is this? Please set it all up so that we can go to our contacts on the new Yahoo.

  7. Contacts are not in the new format. Although accessible by going to the old format, this is a weakness & should be corrected

  9. 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!

  11. New mail format

    I like it - I like that the contacts are over on the right instead of the left. New stuff always takes getting used to.

    HOWEVER, I thought I was selecting to use this new format - but every time I used my contacts list - the OLD format is back.
