Why can I not add a yahoo email account to "People" app?

I'm trying to follow the instructions to activate the application of people to see all the contacts in my mail.  but when I try to add an account, the only choices are Hotmail, Twitter, Outlook and Google, none of which I use.  Sorry, but I use Yahoo and I'm happy with it.  So, I am correct that I can't add yahoo contacts to the people?

I created a yahoo email link in the pane on the start page email and it works, but only to see and read the mail - I can't send mails (except in typing an address) because my contact list was not imported.  It seems so if I can only use it efficiently using the browser.  Which is OK, but not what I thought was intended... Did I something wrong?
Thank you!

PS: Later, after this announcement, it dawned on me that this could really be a software issue, so I'll also it posting in forum Windows RT.  Thank you.

PPS 14/11/2012: in response to another of my posts, someone suggested the simple solution that I followed: open a GMail account, import my contacts from Yahoo to Gmail, then add the Gmail account to the accounts of persons of the Surface.  Bingo, had my Yahoo on the Surface contacts in 5 minutes!


I'm sorry to inform you that you will not be able to add Yahoo mail to people app account in windows 8.

  • Have 2 gmail address I need another profile to add a yahoo email account?

    I have several questions:

    I have 2 gmail accounts and receive emails for each in different tabs in T.bird. It works very well.

    Do I need a new profile for that?

    If I choose to use my existing gmail email will be adding yahoo erase or delete my gmail accounts? The interface of Mozilla is really confusing. If I do not want to use gandi there is a button at the bottom of the dialog box that says: ' pass it and use my existing email. I would be delighted if the specific needs that I've addressed here. None of the help to address documentation. Adds an address yahoo an "existing email"? Seems to me adding that yahoo would add A NEW ADDRESS to a SERVICE PROVIDER OTHER. This is where the confusion begins. Software God UX can be terrible.

    I'd like a clean and easy to understand response.



    Do not buy the gandi account if you already have an e-mail account.

    Select existing e-mail account and add your details of Yahoo. You can add as many account you want. I don't think that anyone has found a limit when one exists.

    In the world of Thunderbird e-mail account means that you have already established with a messaging provider, not the one you already have installed in Thunderbird.

  • Why can I not add music to the next place more?

    This new update *. The feature that I found important on the old update has been removed, the possibility of creating a queue up next. I don't see why you could get rid of this ability. Explanations or something, I see no need to for?

    In addition, the design itself *, on both the app and the office. It was better before.

    You have to touch to add songs to your queue until the next Force the song you want to add to the queue and select play. The song will be added to your queue up next and will play just after the end of the currently playing song. What you can or can not find in the Force Touch menu is the option to play letter which replaced the option Add to the next place on previous versions. Everything you add to the next queue play literally will then play unless you rearrange once on the queue. Some have reported having the option of playing later in some cases, and then it disappears. Me, I've not seen once again. I hope this helps.

  • Why can I not add a single image to the library of my newly installed application android revel?

    Hi, I just installed revel on my android phone and indeed moved to my 8 GB sd card. I currently have zero images in my library, but when I try to add a single image, I get the message "import was stopped because it doesn't have enough storage to revel on this device", this in spite of having more than 5 GB available. I would like to use revel, but not because of this atm. Any suggestions?


    It seems that you have not enough memory on your device to download using revel. Generally, we recommend a minimum of 500 MB of free space to revel to function well.

    You can manually clear the cache to free space by clicking on the library info-> empty the cache for each available library. This command removes full size files that have been cached during download or editing, as well as the larger preview.

    Although you can move revel to the SD card, photos and videos are still in the phone memory. The app is on the SD card. A warning should appear when available memory is<500MB. the="" cache="" is="" purged="" as="" needed="" to="" maintain="" 2="" gb="" of="" free="" space="" in="" the="">


  • Why can I not have my Yahoo Favorites in Firefox 36?

    I had my Yahoo Favorites on the previous version of Firefox, click the icon, got the drop-down list with all my files, no problem. I've upgraded to Firefox 36 & < POOF--> my favorites have disappeared. I try to uninstall the Yahoo toolbar, which is how to access my favorites, and reinstall several times, with no success. I want my favorites from Yahoo back!

    Hi, unfortunately this is a regression with firefox 36. Yahoo has contacted by mozilla on this problem - it would be for them to make the point to their addon to make it compatible with the current versions of the browser again.

  • BlackBerry smartphones can not get my yahoo email for work


    After the death of the battery from my Blackberry 9360, I just bought a new 9720 two days ago in Dubai, thinking that I can just put the same SIM card (from the 9360) of my Swisscom Mobile operator in the new 9720, and I can just continue to receive emails from my yahoo email account. But it does not work.

    Apres_que I set up the yahoo email account under the function of setting on the new 9720, the account is listed with Yahoo symbol in the e-mail... accounts where you can then choose "add another email address" or "back to the setup"). But the 'E-mail accounts' icon (in the Setup, where it lists the different features you can configure outside e-mail accounts) doesn't idicate (with one (1) next to him), who has an e-mail account has already been set up. When I try to compose an e-mail, I get the message "no message services configured. You will be redirected to the Setup Assistant to configure your e-mail account "."

    If I click on ok to continue in this direction, it brings me to the email accounts screen that shows the already created Yahoo e-mail account. If I try to recreate the yahoo account, I get the message that "this account has already been added to your BlackBerry Internet Service". But obviously my yahoo email account does not work because I can't write or receive messages.

    According to your post KB05000, I remove my email yahoo [CMIME] account in the service book, but I noticed there is a second book of service of Internet Service to my yahoo email account that ends with [CICAL]. I wonder if this has nothing to do with it and that I should remove this as well?

    Thanks in advance.


    CMIME is messaging (email) and CICAL is calendar.

    Yahoo! has had some problems in recent months. It might actually be a problem with them and nothing to do with BB. I can't say for sure, however.
