  1. full page contact list

    I hate the contact list now being shown on the right side and much prefer the previous full page contact list. Please bring back the full page list or at provide an option to select this version. Also, some of my contacts seem to have "mysteriously" disappeared.

  2. New contact management format - not goodl!

    As of 18 July 2019, you changed the way in which users can administer contact details. The new contact management is confusing and the layout does not give a good overview over contacts. Please return to the old format!

  6. Alphabetical Order

    In ALL (contacts) the list is in alphabetical order. In LISTS (contacts) the names are in random order. Alphabetical order has been used for hundreds of years to search. It's still the best way.

  7. Issues with new Contacts format

    Many annoyances with the new Contacts format when viewing on a desktop:


    1. Can no longer view Contacts as a full page.


    2. Doesn't show all contacts under each letter. Instead you have to click on "2 more" or "5 more" just to see them all for that letter.


    3. Clicking on a contact doesn't show all the information for that contact. Instead, you have to click on "View more information".


    4. Previously, if the birthday didn't include a year, the Contacts page still showed the month and day. Now, the Contacts page shows birthdays if a month, day, and year were included, but…

  8. Can't view contacts details, only unasked-for past emails

    Yet another unwelcome yahoo feature rammed down our throats on an old Windows platform. Now contacts show beside the new inbox. Good idea.

    But how can I view all my contact info, addresses, ALT phone numbers etc.? Clicking on a contact only gives a string of previous emails, not all contact details. Instead of blocking access to valuable infot, please bring back ability to view and edit all details of a given contact, not the incomplete function now interfering.

  11. Inport csv

    This new version of mail does not allow for import of a csv file. It only allows from social media or other email types. Please put back the ability to import csv files. I could do it 2 weeks ago. Today is 8/22/2019.

  14. Former CONTACTS was much BETTER and User Friendly

    TOO SLOW also NOT convenient, cannot ADD "ADDITIONAL or MORE INFORMATION" to the "CONTACTS", just NAME and EMAIL...NO Birthday/Address/Phone/Notes/Business Info/Other Emails/Website, etc...When you guys make changes and/or create "NEW Yahoo Mail UPGRADES"...You guys seem to SKIP or FORGET Important "DETAILS"...Like NOT thoroughly thought through or more like HALF-ASSED...Yahoo! Used to be WONDERFUL FOR MANY YEARS...then...lately...DOWN THE TUBES!!!...What happened??? I really prefer the OLDER VERSION,
    this one SUCKS and SLOW!!!...

  15. KEEP THE FORMER METHOD OF ADDING NEW CONTACTS

    Keep The Former Method For Adding New Contacts
    It was easy to add new contacts when all I had to do was scroll over the new email address and click on Add Contact. A window opened with the name and email address already there. Yahoo Mail is starting to look more like Gmail. That is not an improvement. I receive emails from new people almost daily. Please keep the good features you had and make it better from there. When you discontinue a useful feature you are creating more work and inconvenience for the people who are using the tools…

  16. Allow sorting of contacts by last name, employer, location, etc

    Allow sorting of contacts by last name, employer, location, etc. I can't BELIEVE that Yahoo was STUPID enough to remove contact sorting by last name. Also, a lot of my contacts disappeared with the new contact format.

  17. NO NO NO!!!!!

    We don't want "quick contacts" This is not an improvement.

    Just give us what we want! PLEASE!!!
    I don't understand. Are you all < 18? > 80?

    Do you not pay 1 second of attention to what your PAYING customers are saying? What the heck is going on at Yahoo??

  18. The new contact list email setup is absolutely WORTHLESS!!!!! The old way was better. CHANGE IT BACK

    Put it back the way it was. When I pull an address from the to field to put it in the BCC field it used to disappear from the to field and now it doesn't. FIX IT

  19. print one list in contacts

    I want to print one list of contacts. The only thing that will print is my entire contact file, not just one list. I've had to switch back to the Basic email to do this, but then when I try to use Basic to email a list of contacts, the list will not appear and I have to switch back to New email. I am very frustrated. Do I need to take my account elsewhere?
