Your Amazon Kindle Fire tablet can automatically import all contacts from Yahoo Mail when you first add the email account to the device. The Kindle Fire ships with all the relevant server settings for Yahoo Mail, which allows the device's Contacts app to sync with Yahoo after you set up your email account. If you choose not to import contacts when adding the email account, you can go back and manually import contacts from Yahoo Mail at any time.

Step 1

Tap the "Apps" tab on the Kindle Fire's home screen. Select "Email" to open the Email app.

Step 2

Touch the "Menu" icon on the Email screen, then tap the "Accounts" option.

Step 3

Press and hold the name of your Yahoo Mail account on the email accounts screen.

Step 4

Tap "Import Contacts" in the list of account options.

Step 5

Wait a few seconds for the import procedure to complete.

Step 6

Select "Contacts" from the Kindle Fire's App screen to access a list of all contacts you've imported from Yahoo and other providers. The device's Email app also accesses the imported contact list when you want to send emails.
