I admit I have not logged into this email account for a while, maybe about six months or so, but I come back and see that all my emails are gone? That is kinda one of the most basic things an email service is supposed to do isn't it? Hold onto emails? And if you guys were going to dump all my emails it seems like I should of gotten some notice or some warning... or some chance to save those emails.
I hope yahoo will be able to resolve this matter.
If an account is unused or dormant for 12 months, it is deactivated and its emails are deleted, more info here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2018.html
If this does not apply to you, You can try doing a search or doing an email restore if the email was deleted in the past 7 days.
In case you are using a mail client such as Outlook or the Native mobile app, emails may be deleted by that third party client. We do recommend accessing your mail via http://yahoo.com or the Yahoo Mail app to avoid this issue.
Yahoo mail is so so so slow on my computer. I've been using my college email address instead (gmail) because it works so much better. However, now that I am about to graduate I have been using my yahoo email more - but it's just so frustrating how glitchy and slow it is. I really do not want to have to get an entire new email address (I would definitely use gmail if I made a new one) but if this isn't fixed soon I'm not going to have a choice.

I accidently marked an e-mail as Spam and it wasn't Spam. What can I do? I want to keep receiving those e-mails and I'm afraid I won't now. Please help!!!
The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Not Spam”, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify important emails in the future. Also if you use a mobile device or email client to access your mail over IMAP, please check the Spam filters in that application, to make sure it’s not marking important emails as spam.
I have just logged into my Yahoo account for the first time in a long time. All my old emails are gone. I want them back!
If you did not sign into your account within 12 months the account is deactivated. Unfortunately, you will not be able to reactivate it or re-create the same email address. You can always sign up for a new Yahoo account.

Go back to the original sign in email and password and you're done no codes being text or any other waste of time

In my inbox, Mails between 2nd July to 24th August 2018 are missing.
Can you please restore the same.

Also, be sure to check your Filters to see if emails are set to go to the Trash, Archive, etc.
My list of contacts won't come up after clicking on list. Many friends have died. and I'd like to remove them from the list. How? Please send info on clearing out the list of contacts.
Please follow the steps here to delete contacts:
1. From Yahoo Mail, click the Contacts icon
2. Click on the contact’s name.
3. Click the More options icon then Delete contact.
4. Click OK to confirm you want the contact deleted.
Forcing a user to enter their mobile number for "account recovery" is not a good practice in my opinion. I don't want my phone linked to this account, or any of my accounts in general... won't be using Yahoo mail anymore.
Also, your continuous scroll Homepage is clunky - it feels heavy and dated. Good luck.
Don’t get locked out of your Yahoo account. Keep a valid mobile phone number or email address on your account in case you ever lose your password. You can add or replace up to 10 email addresses. This limit includes current emails and any that have been recently removed: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2058.html
