      thank you so much, Gordon......this is day 13 and it's really a pain cuz i have to post frequently to all the groups i co-own or mod...

      i tried the new mail yet again, and though it has auto address, it won't recognize the multiple addresses, says they are not valid addresses....won't even save it to drafts...

      and when i do save something to drafts, it doesn't indicate that it's been saved...
      i have to take a chance, leave the page ( usually copy it just in case) and go check !

      there are a few other reasons i prefer classic as well.....among them, the clean look
       and the full subject lines cuz no other stuff on the page....

      but overall i love yahoo mail and groups, for several years now,
       in spite of the occasional minor ( so far) glitches....
      and am extremely grateful they decided to leave our homepages alone !

      the reps have also always been super.

      best wishes,

      I work for Yahoo!, mainly on Yahoo! Groups in the past, but I have recently begun spending more time on Mail.

      Anyway, this is a known issue that began on Classic last week. It's been a tricky problem to resolve quickly because addressing the root causes involves a bunch of different teams at Yahoo! (not just the Mail team). Access to the contact list, which is at the heart of the issue, is run by the platform group, since it's a shared resource across all of Yahoo.

      But folks have definitely been working the problem hard, and I'll post an update about when we expect it to be fixed as soon as I know more. Thanks,

      - Gordon

BTW I am in the UK where we are experiencing the same problems as in the US with Groups traffic being dumped in the Spam folder, and Mail search not working (sometimes only going back less than a year, and now the address field being 'disconnected' from the contacts list.

This is a pain. For example I have a number of family contacts with the name 'brady' I used to be able to type into the To: field something like 'bra' and Yahoo would provide me with drop down menu from my contacts of all of those choices. I then clicked on the ones I needed as recipients. Now this feature doesn't work. Grrr!!! Chris B.
