How Do I Find Contacts In Yahoo! Mail?

Saturday, October 26th, 2013 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

J.D. from Azle, Texas writes:

Yahoo has changed to a new format, how do I retrieve my addresses to send emails?
Let’s check it out, J.D.  First let’s head on over to that new-look Yahoo! Mail inbox.
At the top left of the inbox, choose Compose.
A blank message will open.
In the upper left of the new message, click To.
This window will open.
You can choose contacts from the list.
Or search for contacts in the search field.
Check the name of the contact or contacts  you wish to send the e-mail to.
Then select Done.
You’re message will now be addressed to your chose recipient.
I’ll be checking out some other features of the new look Yahoo! e-mail soon.

    I had no problem finding my contacts, but found no way to change double spacing between lines in a reply to an email that was NOT double spaced. Also find this new format very easy to LOSE an email in progress & no amount of normal clicking anywhere brings it back…finally it does mysteriously return. The SEND button is difficult to access also. Am glad I don’t have to write many emails from this new format. Hopefully it will be made more user friendly in VERY NEAR future.
    Thank you & rest of your staff for all your helpful tips…Don’t know what we’d do without you!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to search for a contact any more in Yahoo mail. You have to scroll down the list to find the one you want. This is a big drawback in my opinion, and I have let Yahoo know about it (so have many others). I hope they will restore Search Contacts in an upgrade soon.

    I hope they will go back to the old way!!

    Another way that is quicker is to click in the “to” field, rather than clicking on the word “to” itself, and start typing the first letter or two of the email address you want to send to, and all the addresses in your contacts that start with those letters will pop up below the “To” field. You can just click the one you want and continue with composing the email.

    Yahoo says its good in ‘Search’ and wont allow us to search contacts . What a crap ! what a shame !

  6. Scott Thomson says:

    You can’t search contacts?

    What kind of drooling cretins are running Yahoo?

  7. Chris Welch says:

    I was using my Yahoo contacts list to save more information about my contacts than just the email address. How do I find the addresses and telephone numbers I stored there in the fields provided by Yahoo Mail?
