You will need to export your contacts from the old email system and then import them into the new one. How that is done, and what format you tell it to export them to, depends on from which service you are moving and to which you are moving.

Basically, though, it's the same as if you were to change computers. Your "old computer" (the other e-mail system) still has all of your contacts. You have to copy those contacts to something (a file) and then bring that file to the "new computer" (new e-mail system/service) and have them import them so that they have the same information the old one had. Otherwise, that information stays where it is.

If your old service has no way of doing this, you will need to do it the good-ol'-fashioned way. Open the list of contacts, and write the information down, or copy and paste the text, or take screen-shots of each page, or take photos with your phone, or however else you can think of to record the information, and then go type it in over at the new place.

SOURCE: need old email adress back lashawnwilliams62@yahoo.com

Yahoo mail is a funny animal..
The best thing you can do, in your case, is to email Yahoo at their contact us address and tell them what your problems are !
It may take several day's before you recv. a answer but if you have no flags with yahoo and have or have had an account with yahoo, they may be able to help you out.

Caution...
Never give out your email information and really never give out your password information.
Hope this has helped you.!?!

Readers, Please rate your technicians.
Thanks,

SOURCE: cannot edit contact info greyt4200@yahhoo.com

I can see how this is confusing. Have you tried clicking right on Contacts? It should bring up a screen showing your list of contacts. Click on a contact for editing. Hope this hopes. Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: i have deleted my yahoo

I am sorry but I don't think you can get those contacts back unless you had another email account where you had those contacts, if you had, shall we say, an aol account but never check it, you could open it and see if you can get the contacts you need. Yahoo accounts delete permanently.

Always print a list of your contacts. I have done this several times. But by the time you have fixed your e-mail, your contacts may have changed or moved or lost them to moving of lost friendships.
This happens also,

"Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.

Some people throw away old friends????

I like to answer some of these when I have a chance.

I need someone to help me in my house and I have asked many people but cannot find anyone.

I have had both hips replaced and cannot do as I used to. I do not have much money to pay anyone and that is the problem also.

I cry for help in my townhouse. No one hears me.

Last name change on mail


If you are referring to Yahoo free email, for example @yahoo.com, simply register an account in your new name and inform your contacts to update their address books. You can still continue using the your old email address if you want to, as well as the new one. In fact, within reason you can open as many Yahoo email addresses you want.

Hope this helps
