    I'm sorry to hear that you're having some trouble adding an address to the recipient field in an email that you're composing. In Yahoo Mail you'll see an address displayed in red if that address has a typo or includes information that the system isn't recognizing as a legitimate email address. If this is an address from your contact list you may need to edit the contact details associated with that address so that it displays properly when added to an email.

    For more information about editing contacts I recommend taking a look at our overview help article below:

    Edit the contact details? You can't edit a contact address if it is correct.
