    When starting a new email OR forwarding, you can access contacts in 2 ways:

    (1) ** From Email page: Click on "TO" -- you will see the box with Contacts; select the ones you need to send email; click on DONE; All those names are filled in TO column;

    ** When you type one or 2 letters of a Contact's name, you will see the auto-suggestions; you can select the contacts from those suggestions by clicking ENTER button on them.

    (2) From CONTACTS page: Open your Contacts folder; select the contacts you need to send email to; Select "EMAIL CONTACTS" in your right side. This procedure works only for composing a new message, doesn't work for FORWARDING.

    ** If this issue started recently (from past 2-3 days) and was working even in your All New Mail, it can be a Browser problem! Please change your browser and see whether it works! Please refer these Yahoo Help links regarding Browser issues:



    Hope one of these above suggestions help with your issue. Best Regards!
