Group email not working
New mail cannot be sent to a new group
New mail cannot be sent to an old group
Existing contacts cannot be added to a new group
Existing contacts do not display group affiliations
I guess groups are not groups at Yahoo any longer. Maybe they are just there for decorations.

Go back to the old email. This new version is crazy!!!! Hate it. Cant put in a name...and have yahoo fill in the address...can't do multiple mailings. Horrible!!!

Correct the faults in your new system.
1) If you come out of an email you are drafting to look something up, for instance, and go back to the message, it hasn't been kept, as it would have been in the old system.
2) Sending an email. Previously one could type in the start of a name, and various options came up. One, naturally, clicked on the wanted name. NOT NOW. Each time, one has to go to a contact list. Takes up much more time.
3) Had to update the whole of my contact list. over 700 contacts.Amend one contact, say with surname of "M". Finish edit, you're taken back to "A" every time. So, I have to scroll down to "M" again to amend the next one. Maddening.
You guys just haven't thought it through.

When I try to send an email 'auto complete' on the email address no longer works. My idea is to go back to the version that worked. Fix it please.
Allow EMAILs to review contacts list.

I CAN NOT SEND GROUP E-MAIL THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SEND NOTICES TO CLUBS. THE OLDER VERSION WORKED GREAT PLEASE PUT ME BACK. IF IT IS NOT DONE ASAP I WILL BE USING ANOTHER OTHER INTERNET PROVIDER. WHY CHANGE VERSION AND NOT WORK STUPED STUPED. PUT ME BACK ASAP.
I found out how to export your contacts. You have to update to the latest version of mail - even if you don't like it.
Then go into Contacts - it'll look like it did before this mess.
Click ACTIONS just above the list of your contacts.
and then select the export method you desire. My suggestion is to do it once for Outook, Netscape/Thunderbird and Yahoo CSV.
I think Google and MS Outlook will be able to import contacts from one or more of those formats.
Google and Outlook both have functions that will IMPORT/TRANSFER (I don't recall their terminology) a copy of your email from Yahoo. It could take hours or a day or two for the process to complete depending upon how many emails you have. They keep your folders which is nice too.
What's with all the contacts?? I looked into my contacts on this new ****** email account and it appears that I had masses, most I've never even heard of. On looking again it appears that it has entered every email address I've ever written to, ie every competition email I've entered into, every online shop I've ever done, every question I've asked a supplier ................................. The list of contacts went on and on and on. Then to delete - you cannot delete in bulk you have to delete each singly, BUT it keeps saying that your action couldn't be carried out, so each deletion has had to be deleted THREE TIMES before it disappears. That has just taken me absolutely ages, a complete waste of my afternoon. Yahoo really needs to get things sorted out with this new totally ineffective, useless, ****, email account system. Yahoo you are not winning any converts here as you can see by reading the comments. That's of course if you are actually reading the comments and not going through some paper exercise online whereby you aren't even opening the comments yourselves, therefore are not even listening to the very customers you want to keep. I ask again folks can anyone recommend another email provider of basic emails please??
It looks like they eliminated the export function to prevent you from moving. Yahoo really sucks. It's amazing they could get worse under Verizon but it appears to be happening.
I went to type an e-mail and you've deleted half of my contacts in giving me the updated old e-mail version. I had no issues with your update, but I didn't know you went in and messed with my contacts. Good God, what a mess now. What did you do with my contacts? The other thing that bothered me was I had to sign in to this page when I was already signed in to my Yahoo and THEN!!! you automatically signed me in. How is that? I do NOT have any automatic sign in for Yahoo.
Most contact details are missing. Items such as addresses (home, work, other), multiple phone numbers, birthdays, anniversaries, notes and much more that I used and need access to are gone.
How could you do such a thing? Really, does anyone think about these "changes".
Where are the contact details? Birthdays, alternative phone numbers, addresses? How could you possibly not include that in any program changes? Really, can it get much worse? Do you just want to chase your customers to Google and Microsoft? It's not that hard to move.

There is no option to select.

The new mail is unuseable. Please fix it instead of just forcing it onto us.
lau dennis commented
also, you can't even ******* use the group domain on the bloody new version. What A ****. No wonder why google is better than you.
gary buchanan commented
in contacts it does not fill in , contacts are not in alpha order
There is no option to go back to basic. I can't send an e-mail because putting in the first name doesn't bring up a list of contacts to click on, like it used to.. The colors are bad for old eyes. You have totally ruined Yahoo mail. And I pay for this mail. I will have to stop using e-mail altogether or find somewhere else after 25 years of using your service for both my business e-mail and personal e-,mail. I wished Yahoo cared about us old folks, I bed you, one more time... give us back the classic version, PLEASE.

Gustavo Puglisi commented
This new version is a disaster. The prediction or autocomplete does not work when entering a contact to send an email
