Restore Deleted or Missing Contacts in Yahoo Mail

We met in the recent tech conference and shared our email address for future communication. It was really great to get interact with like-minded people.

I saved her contact in my Yahoo account. After the conference, I came back to my town and got involved in my daily life.

This weekend, I was recalling the event and thought to get in touch with her, but what!

To my utter surprise; all my Yahoo contacts are missing.

In just few moments; I lost it.”

This is really disheartening. I want to get back my accidentally lost Yahoo account contacts.

Is there any way?

The Yahoo! Inc. introduced this brilliant email service as Yahoo! Mail. Yahoo mail is a wonderful email service which is constantly introducing new features into it.
