Yahoo! Messenger makes it easy to populate your Messenger List with contacts.
One way to quickly populate your Messenger List is to use the Import feature. With this feature, Messenger searches through your Yahoo! Contacts and gathers a list of contacts that already use Messenger. You then select the ones you want to add to your Messenger List—with their approval, of course. You can find this feature detailed in the Adding Contacts to Your Messenger List tutorial.
Another way to populate your Messenger List is to share contacts between your friends. You can share your Messenger List with your friends and they can share their lists with you.
