  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. 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>

  4. 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.

  6. Lists

    After a contact search yields a contact, I can't tell what list they're on or IF they're even on one of my lists. Where's that info gone, into yahoo's thin-air of the past? And how do I know how many contacts are on a list? I have to COUNT them?????????

  7. Put it All back the way it was!!!!

    When I copy a contact, I expect it to show the address, when I email it to a friend. Some friends, do not know how to make it visible. We should have the option on what we want. Not go change everything, and expect us to like it. Plus.....The address book, It was better on the left side then on the right side. Very awkward. I just Hate the new way. Love to have it back the way it was. So much easier. Some of us older people don't like change. I am one of them. I do like the…

  10. Contact list are terrible. Where does all the extra listings come from?

    Return to the old contact list format. Alphabetically by last name first. Where does all the extra listings come from? I have a list with thirteen (13) entries but you created thirty (30) entries. Return to the old Contact List format.

  14. Adding or opening Contacts fails to open

    When I try clicking on the contact icon to add a contact it fails to open. I can't add, delete, or change any contact(s). This has been going for a long time. When the **** is someone at Yahoo going to fix this problem? Or is it to difficult for a developer to fix. I see other are complaining about the same problem, but help from Yahoo. Get someone to fix the dam problem!!!!

  16. My iPhone Yahoo Mail app is auto adding senders to my contacts, including spam senders.

    There should be an option in the app to stop this. Now I have to open each unwanted contact and then delete.

  17. Return to former Contacts interface

    Return to former Contacts interface. You have reduced the utility of Contacts to the point where I consider switching providers. I use the Notes field, which has become useless with last downgrade. One line of Notes is pointless and may end a 20 year Yahoo account.

  18. fix email contacts

    I was unable to delete or update email contacts using the new program and had to go to the old one to do that. Then, because font size isn't an option in the old program I had to change back again.
