      Here's the response I received after I reported that all my contacts suddenly went "unfiled" one morning.  I mentioned it in here, after I had recategorized them all, and was asked to report it to Yahoo.  So I did.

      Did she even READ the issue?  Is this a canned response?  I mean, seriously.  The web browser caused Yahoo to unfile all my contacts? 

      And I certainly hope she WASN'T able to repeat the issue - I spent hours re-categorizing all my contacts after they somehow went unfiled.  I certainly wouldn't want that repeated.

      In His Grip,

      5.  Describe your problem:
            On Sunday afternoon, all my Contacts became Unfiled.  When I left
      for church that morning, all 1100+ were all categorized.  I spent hours
      re-categorizing them.

      Then, of course, you had your outage Monday morning.  However, the
      missing categories occurred before the Connection Refused error I
      received on Monday morning.

      This was discussed in the Yahoo Groups Mail Group, and one of the Yahoo
      techs that frequents the group said to report the missing category
      issue.  It happened to someone else on the group, as well.
