sent folder items cannot be moved at all at the moment. they cannot be moved to other folders.
I suppose that this is a temporary glitch and hope it will be resolved asap

    As of today

    1. I cannot move a message to the Sent folder
    2. There's no option to move a deleted "Sent" message back to the Sent folder

    Using "Upgraded" account:
    Has not worked in Yahoo Android app for a long time.
    But, could go to the laptop and move sent email to a folder of choice.
    Now, that has stopped working too!!!

    Really, really would like to see this fixed!

    Today 26 Sept 2018, this problem has been resolved and I am very happy and delighted.
    Many thanks Yahoo Team.

    Here's another workaround:
    If you switch back to "classic email" (in settings) you can file the sent messages with no problem. It certainly is annoying, but that's what I've been doing at the end of the day. Then I switch back to "upgraded" when I'm done.

    I've noticed this over the last 2 days. It used to be possible so Yahoo have broken something. So Yahoo should fix it. Doesnt Yahoo have a team doing regression tests of Mail every day?

    you can use this work around:
    1) make sure you empty your trash box
    2) delete the sent messages you want to move
    3) open the trash box
    4) move the deleted messages from there to the folder of your choise

    I am not able to move emails from my sent box to another folder even after I refresh. Hope this can be fixed asap please :)

    I am currently having trouble moving emails from my sent folder to individual folders (which i can find later in that particular folder instead of looking through entire sent folder)....i am still able to do the movement from the inbox....why has such changes been made.....now my sent folder is getting large.....

    I have reported the same problem from the Main Yahoo comments home page. Haven't received any confirmation, acknowledgement or notification of corrective action. This appears to be a minor issue, but troublesome nonetheless. Please acknowledge and/or correct this issue ASAP.

    Steve R. - His suggested work around enabled my files to be moved out of sent to other folders as I require for my filing system.

  • Steve R. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Here's a stopgap idea until Yahoo fixes this issue. Empty your trash folder and then delete all the emails in your sent folder, then file away these emails from trash to their proper folders! I did this successfully!!!

  • Steve R. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I have also not been able to move emails in my sent folder since last yesterday, September 23, 2018! Please fix this immediately!!

    Sent e-mails cannot be filed to folders. They stay in the "sent" folder.
    Please fix this issue.
