  1. With new system I cannot add a contact to an existing email list. What happened?

    I can no longer assign individual contacts to a email distribution list. You keep messing with something that worked great. Please restore yahoo email classic, NOW!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    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

  2. Go back to classic version and quit messing with it!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. What happened to my notes with important info about my contacts???

    Where is the personal information that I had stored in my contacts Notes? Like names of friends' children, info on how I met the person, and other important stuff that I could only put in the Notes section under each entry? Please don't tell me you deleted that. I had a ton of info that I compiled over several YEARS that I kept only in those notes!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. WHY WILL CONTACTS NOT ADD IF THERE IS NO EMAIL ADDRESS? I WANT TO ADD A CONTACT FOR THE PHONE NUMBER.

    Can not add contacts unless there is an email address and it is not showing the Employer info if I use a different email address.

  16. Go back to Yahoo! interface for contacts. Don't break what is good!!

    Please bring back the original Yahoo! contacts list, as well as its ability to open it fully on the mail page.
    Need a larger interface to see all details, rather than scroll down for everything.
    I want to include many details such as Nickname (to remember), and other such that were there all these years. Now, I can not even see those details!! The data collected from years is lost???!!!
    I DO NOT want to add Facebook, Twitter, etc. Useless things.
    People have many better things to do that indulge in waste of time with Social Network.
    If you put…

  20. Why is "New and Improved" always NOT improved? Can't you STOP tinkering with a good thing? Bring back the Classic email and go away.
