  1. Yahoo Mail's contact list / Address book

    Get rid of the new Yahoo address book. Put it back to the way it used to be with last names first. It's now impossible to quickly find a contact and make updates to their information. Make it optional if the user wants to get all the past e-mail topics & how many times they have e-mailed or received an e-mail from someone. Personally, I don't want this information - too much information - TMI

  3. This new format is awful, I prefer the older one. I can't use this for my newsletters easily. Maybe I need to move to another email.

  5. Contacts and group assignment?

    The version of Yahoo mail I have now is very difficult to assign contacts to a group. The version I had previously was very straight forward and user friendly. Now I find it practically impossible. I added a contact to a group on yesterday and its still difficult to locate that contact in the group. I SORT BY FIRST NAME WHICH IS NOT THE CASE NOW>

  9. Too many personal emails go directly to Trash

    Wanted emails, esp. those which are back & forth conversations, persons whose email addresses are already in my Contacts, are going directly to Trash instead of my InBox. I have missed important family updates and conversations. I have to check both Trash and Spam (if one is a problem, I don't want Spam catching stuff in error either) several times a day to make sure I am not missing an important email.

  10. Contact List

    The new contact list is horrible. I cannot find where to add a new contact. It was bad enough that I had to go to the "old" email program to get to my list, but now it's completely useless.

  13. I want to open my Yahoo with a password! I cannot open other devices without verifying with a differnt email or phone number! Hate it

    I want to go back to the password format, I cannot open yahoo on my phone because I have to verify on a phone number I don't have anymore or an email that is my work email. NOT every one can take their phone to work!

  14. SEARCH go back to the old, folder column not email provider column

    SEARCH in newest version is the pits. At least in the past when I did a search of my emails, the results had a column telling me which folder it was in. Now that same column just tells me it's in Yahoo - well D-u-h! Of course it's in yahoo. Bring back the feature of SEARCH that tells me what folder the found email is in.

  16. Emails are being received a couple hours to a day later. This does not work for me especially when trying to change a password!

    I am not getting my emails when they are being sent out. There are particular times when an email gets released from different companies, and it never shows up in my inbox. It's not in spam either. It's shows up hours later or the next day. I am also trying to change a password on something important and that can't even show up on time. So now the email is worthless because of time constraints. This is a real problem!

  17. Watch what you send to spam----I have to check several times a day and I always see emails in spam that don't belong there.

    Your performance is terrible---several times I have to go into spam and I find emails that DO NOT belong in spam. Watch what your doing with my mail.
