To remove a contact from the address book, open the contact editing dialog and click Remove from contacts.
To send messages to several contacts at one time without entering their addresses, you can group contacts and then will only need to specify the group's name in the To field.

You can use the integrated search which supports direct and reverse transliteration of names and surnames to find a contact in your address book quickly. For example, both Latin “n” and Cyrillic “н” are used to find the contact, “Nyota Uhura”.
When composing a message, if you enter the first letters of a name, surname, or email addresses in the To field, you will see a list of matching contacts in pop-up messages. The addressees of mail you recently sent will be listed first.
To view additional information about a contact, left-click on the sender's address when reading messages. You may fill in contact cards yourself (for example, by adding a phone number, date of birth, or comment) or by asking the person to send you the required contact information.
If your contact has profiles in social networks, you can view them in the contact card by clicking Find on the Internet.
Mail uses information from open sources to search for profiles, for example, Facebook, LinkedIn, “Moy Krug”, “Odnoklassniki”, “Moy Mir” social services and other sites that support the ability to search images and user profiles with email addresses.
Go to Privacy in account settings. Select Do you want other search engines to link to your timeline? and click Edit. Uncheck Do you want other search engines to link to your timeline? and click Confirm.
You can prevent Mail from displaying profiles that have been found. Go to the page social.yandex.com using your Yandex account. If you would like to prevent other mail services from searching your profile using the linked email address, use your social network profile for authorization.
If your profile in a social network is not linked to your Yandex account yet, click the icon of that social network, enter your username, and allow “Yandex.Passport” to access the profile. The action confirms that you are the profile owner.
If the social network profile is already linked to your Yandex account, uncheck Mail in Use on services.
