Question about Computers & Internet
Lost old contacts when changed to new system
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.

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.
Never give out your email information and really never give out your password information.
Hope this has helped you.!?!
Readers, Please rate your technicians.

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.
