    Not a big deal, I switched to El Capitan today and things are working mostly alright to my surprise. One issue with my email has changed. Before EC using Mavericks I had an option under customize toolbar to add an icon called Addresses to be dragged into the tool bar of the mail program. Which allows me to click and activate my contacts list from that button. With EC there is no choice offered called Addresses from the customize toolbar to add that icon in the upper tool bar. Any help is appreciated .

    Thank You EC for not messing up my Apple Computer as it did for some folks. Just the mail issue that is causing me to add each email recipient one at a time. Hope there is a fix for this situation.

    If you "upgraded" the Mac then have the OS X 10.11 Users delete there email settings (after the write down the settings first) and re-add them manually (by holding down the 'option' key to manually add settings). You have to do through System Preferences now though!

    Also are the users using POP, IMAP or EXCHANGE?

    None of what you have said has worked for my situation. Reading my OP ......I can't find a way to add an icon in the upper portions of the mail program that use to say ADDRESS..... which when clicked loaded my CONTACTS list. I now have to load contacts list manually from the dock and choose recipients for my email, then drag them over to the mail program. Before EC as I said, the customize tool bar had an icon to be dragged into the upper mail bar. Just something I need to find an answer too.

    Update......I now have discovered in my mail program there is a blue circle with a cross inside it located in the send to field on the far RT side. When I click it the Contacts list appears. But I can't choose more than one address at a time to move it over to the send field. Still looking for an answer.

    You NEVER said if the email server you connecting to is POP, IMAP or Exchange!

    POP is the connection........ But I got a wow the last time I used mail...........I load Contacts, then hold down the Command key, choose all the address I want, drag them over to mail and it's a winner.
    Now to find something else to bitch about.

    after installing El Capitan I began to get problems with Mail. When I "reply" the mail crashes. Horrible problem.
    I just discovered something. Mail does not crash if I open it and do not open a browser. I can reply with no problems. However, if I open mail, then start a browser, Safari or Firefox, then immediately return to the apple mail and try to reply, mail crashes.

    Yes there are a few things in EC that need twerking. At first after reading all the terrible things posted on this forum about moving to EC I decided to hold off for a time. Which allowed me to load EC's later fixes along with the new OS. I must say it looks familiarly nice, with many of the same functionality workings of my previous OS Mavericks. Crap I read all the bitching about even the plain looking three dots in the upper RT corners. Not a big deal with me, just click the suckers and if they do what they are designed to do it's OK.

    You will need to work on that mail thing for sure. I bet if you remover..... then re-enter your mail info things might perk up. Luck to you.

    I tried to remove all my email accounts and then add them back after restarting the computer that did not stop the crashes when I clicked on "reply" to an email. However, as I just noted above, I discovered that the problem is linked to opening Safari. Mail does not crash if I do not open Safari.
