  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Let me print from the email

    Its pretty annoying that when I'm trying to print a simple document that came as an attachment, I can't print from the email. Oh, there's a print button alright. But it opens a box to save the doc on my computer, not a print dialogue box. Many times, I do not want to save the doc. I just need to print it. It is just really irritating that printing is not an option, and the print button is misleading.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. Improve filter functions

    filters are difficult to manage. enable a move option besides the up and down buttons. also allow the delete key on the keyboard to delete an outdated filter. drop down option on fliters to block that address rather than dump it in the trash. You have to fix it. what you have a beginning programer can do for Sort list in coding 101.

  17. rearrange folders

    Rearrange folder list -- I would like to reorder them to have the most frequently used folders on top. "Sent" is so far down! I don't even used "Starred"

  18. Personal settings for navigation bar.

    Make the left side navigation bar customizable so a person can move or remove any categories that don't apply to their experience and have them STAY that way instead of having to hide them every time. Make it so customers could move the folder section around in the bar to make it easier to organize your inbox into their folders and see immediately when a message shows up in a filtered folder.

  20. Contacts are no longer alphabetized. This is awful. Also throw away the Archives folder. I can make my own folders. This wastes my time

    Alphabetize Contacts and bring back the Contacts icon. It is hard to even get a look at your contacts after the "upgrade." Your upgrades always make things worse.
