    So I'm trying to use my yahoo email and gmail to send excel invoices, I can do it in yahoo, but I also need my email contact list, which I cannot find on this email setup. When I send them on my PC, I simply go to contacts and click on the client I want, then attach the in vice and send, any ideas how I can do this on the xoom? Thanks in advance!

    So do I need to actually email a person first before it saves the address, and then if I email them again and I start typing, it will come up?

    I was really hoping for a contact section in my email like what you have if you're using yahoo on a PC....

    Are you trying to use the Yahoo Client on your Xoom or are you logging into the web site? If you are using the Yahoo Client, then the addresses are pulled from your Address Book. When you are composing a message, click on Address Book under the To line and it will pull up your Yahoo contacts. These are not the same as the "contacts" on your Xoom which are pulled from your Gmail account.

    As far as Gmail goes, you should be able to use the type ahead feature that was mentioned above. All of your contacts for Gmail are the same as the Contacts on your Xoom. The contacts are stored in the cloud and are available whether you are on a PC, or any Android device. If you have contacts in your Yahoo account that are not in Gmail, and you want them there, follow the instructions at this link to import your Yahoo Contacts to Gmail.

    I'm using the email icon and its set up as my yahoo account. This is the account I cant get my contacts from. Their is nowhere I can click on any kind of address book. I also have the yahoo app and have my contacts their, but I can't attach any files through this app, I don't get it. Is their some other client I need to find that I'm not using?

    Go to your Yahoo Contacts...
    Export your yahoo address book as a CSV file...

    Go you Gmail account then import that CSV file.

    No need for tech support. Just follow the simple steps in the first link I posted above to import your yahoo contacts into Gmail. The Android email client, like the Gmail client uses your Gmail account contacts.

    Also be sure to go into settings, accounts and make sure contacts are set to sync. If your contact sync is not enabled, you won't have access to them.
