  1. 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.

  3. 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!!!

  4. 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?

  6. 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."

  7. 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?

  8. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. How to get back e-mail addresses from missing Address Book

    My complete Address Book is missing. They saved 10 Top contacts which are not my top 10. To get back a contact, Go to COMPOSE and then TO. Type in the name of the person you want to e-mail. Their email address will appear under the name. Write it down and then manually add it to the new list on the right side of the page. Add contact is at the bottom. At least you can salvage some of your friends and family that have disappeared into the vast abyss. It is also missing in the Basic Yahoo as well.…

  17. Why does Yahoo remembers all of the contact without my agreement???

    My contact list is long and I have rarely allowed yahoo to put them in my contact list. Everything from the City of Houston, Centerpoint Energy no reply address,Youtube, even several Craiglist addresses is on it. I may have searched something, or asked someone on Craiglist but why would I agree to add them to my contact list? History just says "This is one of your Yahoo contact". So Yahoo you automatically added those email addresses for no reason and now I have to delete them individually. TERRIBLE!

  18. Contact auto-filling feature is annying & not working

    Yahoo's contact automatic filling is annoying and not working. I accidently emailed something entering a wrong contact email address and somehow Yahoo remembered that and that email address popped up ever since, and it wouldn't allow me to put the correct email address and wouldn't allow me to click send (on my Android). Terrible!

  19. mostafa.maalmi@yahoo.com

    Comme cela a été décrit par d'autres utilisateurs, la gestion des groupes de contacts n'est pas possible comme avant: changer le nom d'un groupe, enlever un contact d'une liste et le mettre dans une autres liste. En plus parfois qd je tape le nom du groupe dans les destinataires, il n'y rien qui se passe comme si le groupe n'existe pas.
    Je ne sais pas pourquoi on met en place une version qui n'est pas encore au point et qui n'a pas au moins les mêmes fonctionnalités que la version précédente. Il faut que la nouvelle version soit plus facile…
