    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. To add an existing contact list to an email, open a compose window and begin typing the list name in the “To”, “Cc” or ’Bcc” field. You should be able to select the contact list from the suggested contacts presented there.

    Alternatively, click on the “To”, “Cc” or”Bcc” fields to launch the contact picker feature. Your lists are available in the dropdown menu to the top right of the contact picker window.

    Unfortunately, editing existing lists or creating new lists is not currently possible. We are working on bringing this functionality to the new Contacts pane as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and your feedback as we work on making Contacts in Yahoo Mail a more streamlined and unified experience.

    Thank you,
    Mail Admin

  4. Please bring back GROUPS to the contact list. In the classic version I had my contacts grouped by type and now these groups are gone.

    Please bring back GROUPS to the contact list. In the classic version I had my contacts grouped by type and now these groups are gone.
    They were a handy feature and I'd like to see them brought back to the LEFT side of the screen as they were in the past.

  5. I want my contacts listed by last name first. You took that away. I want it back.

    Reinstate the option to have contacts listed last name first.

  6. Allow people to manage their contacts

    I can no longer manage my contact list. There is not a delete option within contacts. I see some replies from the Yahoo Admin saying to go inside the contact, click edit, select the "X" next to their email address, then click save. However, when I click the "X" and try to save, it says "Invalid Email". Please fix this functionality. Or better yet, allow me to pull up all my contacts and delete multiple ones at once. Also, stop adding every email address that I send to my contacts.

  8. Your page on how to switch back to Classic Mail is in error. There is no icon or drop down where you can easily click back to the classic.

    There is no icon or drop down menu where you can easily click back to the Classic Version. I'm so frustrated and disappointed with the arrogance Yahoo has that they have built a better mousetrap. You do us all a disservice when you use this as a ploy to get users to pay $4.99 a month for better service. You've hijacked our contacts and could care less about your customers. I'd be an idiot to pay for your Pro Mail.

  9. Go back to the way it was!

    Go back to the old way. WTH won't the contacts open into a new page when I click on it? How am I supposed to change who is in the list section? You NEVER give help on where to find things or how to do the things when you change them. Not EVERYONE who uses Yahoo mail is a computer whiz.

  14. I want my contact list back. It makes it hard to identify if I have sent the e-mail to the list of individuals in my catagory contact list.

    I want my contact categories back. I have several specific lists of individuals that I need to keep together when I sent e-mails and now I can't fine the list that I can click off the names. Why did you mess up with one of the great features of your e-mail? I see that several other individuals want this list back and yet I don't see any changes being made. Without the list of groups, you are making sending group e-mails hard and tedious.

  15. Don't take the Classic mail away until you fix the Lists feature in the Contacts. You've had months to work on this.

    You've had months to fix the Lists feature in Contacts, and it's still not there. Please don't take away Classic Mail until you have figured this feature out.

  19. Return to the original e-mail address book

    It's not a new idea. I can't put addresses in a category. You had returned to the original e-mail address book, but then changed again. Leave well enough alone.
