  1. Groups in contacts

    It used to be simple to add or delete a contact from a group, but now it seems to be impossible. Go back to the old way or publish instructions on how to do it now.

  2. Put the contact list back they way it was!

    I have wasted so much of my valuable time trying to add new contacts to my list. I have figured out how to delete a contact from a "list" but there is NO simple way to add a new contact to a specific "list" I am actually experiencing a mild panic attack at this moment! I also have not figured out how to print my existing contact list. Seriously yahoo! WTF are you doing!

  3. Make new contacts instantly available to add to lists (or make lists editable on contact page)

    There is a lag between adding a new contact and yahoo recognizing them as a contact so they can be added to a list. In fact, it appears that you have to exit yahoo and open again in order to have new contacts available for lists.

    Additionally, I wish there were a way to add to or remove from a list from the "edit contact" screen, like there used to be. Sometimes I have to move a contact from one list to another, and I used to be able to do that from one screen. Now I have to enter,…

  4. I need the old Contacts page

    Put it back the way it worked, please. This margin format is awful. Give us back a separate Contacts page.

  6. WHAT DID YOU DO TO CONTACTS? CAN'T EDIT OR MANAGE LISTS. FIX IT!

    You completely screwed up how contacts are managed. It's now impossible to add a contact to a list. You are no longer prompted to add a contact to address book. Contacts used to be usable, now they're almost completely useless and undependable. Why do you people keep making Yahoo worse instead of better? This has been going on for like 8 years now.

  8. where are my contacts? Half of my contacts are missing in the new Yahoo mail

    Half of my frequently used contacts have disappeared. They reappear if I go back to the old Yahoo mail. However, if I want to email a group in the old Yahoo mail and type the name of my group, it doesn't list any of the contacts in that group. WTH!!!

  9. missing notes from contact

    I used to have many important notes saved within the contacts. Now all those notes disappeared, all my saved notes are gone. Very disappointed! How can we retrieve those important notes within the contacts?

  11. contacts

    major issues with the new Contacts (since the update where Contacts appear only in the margin):
    - multiple entries under the same name
    - unable to add new contacts to preexisting and new lists
    - notes not showing
    - categories for phone numbers and email addresses (Home/Work/Other, for example) for all contacts prior to the "margin update" are no longer categorized, and are now generically relabeled as just "Phone" or "Email"

    PLEASE RESTORE ALL THESE DATA! And, as everyone else has been saying, the best case scenario is to bring Contacts back to the version prior to the "margin update."

  12. Needed feature missing from Yahoo

    The help menu tells me that I can add a contact to a list if I just select the list and then choose Edit to add the contact e-mail address to that list. How about adding said Edit feature so this can be done?

  13. Fix the lag between adding a contact and being able to add to a list. Make it less clicks

    Yahoo keeps forcing us to new email but they do not fix the issues. I do not want to keep checking to see if I can add a contact that shows up in contacts but list section will not find the contact. It has been over 30 minutes and still can't add to list. In classic you could add from contact add screen and to multiple lists at once. FIX YOUR ISSUES OR LET US GO BACK to CLASSIC MAIL until you do. This update is horrible, do you want to lose more users to Google. We don't feel like…

  15. 3 Entries per Contact? Why?

    Why do I have 3 entries for the same person? It wasn't like this on the original Yahoo email.

  19. Fix Your List-It's An Old Problem

    And the beat goes on with Yahoo's inability to create a list that is fully functional. A list of 10 names will not show all of them when trying to add the addressees to an email. My God and how Yahoo is trying to foist a "new" email on us. Get the one you have in working order and then maybe try to "improve" it.
