I used to have names of most used contacts to the left of all my emails. Now it's gone. All I had to do is click on a name and I could then compose an email to them. How do I get that list back?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

On the bottom left there is a chat symbol (like an SMS message). Click that and they should reappear. That's the toggle button.
