Automatically Add New Recipients to Contacts Missing in Yahoo Mail Classic

The setting in Yahoo Mail to "Automatically add new recipients to Contacts" is currently not available in Yahoo / AT&T Mail Classic.

The mandatory upgrade is coming in June 2013 so this should fix the situation but these are just my observations and I'm not sure.

This is screen shot of the Yahoo Mail Classic as of 5/2013.  You will see that the check box to add contact automatically add email addresses is gone.

These are the old general directions about how to add a contact to your Yahoo Mail Account.

This a screenshot of Yahoo Small Business Mail that under the "Mail Options" and General Tab, the option to "Automatically Add New Recipients to Contacts" is there.  All you have to do is check the box and save the settings.
