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.

I Have lost a 22-year-old email account/accounts which are like gold & my 1st & most important digital plus life asset.
Even if we have unintentionally committed the mistake of keeping the yahoo mail account inactive for more than a year during Covid time, please charge us all the server retaining & storing costs but don't snatch away us from us. It was friends, family, happiness, moments, & much more.
We trusted Yahoo mail over everything & it all vanished just like that.
Your brilliant tech team & capability would have some way to restore & make us rejoice ! plz help all..

I have been away from the web over 1.5 yrs. due to COVID shutdowns and not having access at home. I seem to have been able to log into an account with my ***@yahoo.com address, but it has been erased. Can't blame you as that is likely co. policy and makes sense, but I hope I can recover old emails - some may be useful - and clear out the backlog of many unwanted ones. I have problems getting into my other email account at mail.com for same reasons, so you likely can't reply there. If at all possible, you can call with info at my home tel. no. (4150 643-1931. Or, if you are able, please restore the old email account before it got cut off and cleared out. Thank you, EC

Hi, how come my inbox is empty? And why the heck am I being directed to payment site just to pay for a free email which I signed up more than 10 years ago? Even if your stupid company insisted for payment, could you at least not to remove all my past emails? Those are my personal items. How the heck can you remove my personal items without my consent?

I lost my old emails because I couldn't log into my account for a long time. I want my old mailbox back, which is important to me. Can you help?

You wiped all email from the inbox linked to my small business account.
How am I supposed to run a business if you arte going to erase all my emails without notice ??
nee nunya commented
Wiped out yrs of email / history.
All because a person doesn't sign in when you want them to.
Life is so much more complicated than that and with all these time restricted deadlines for everything we only have one strand of hair left to pull out.
We should have the ability to back up our emails and restore from back ups.
Its not fair yahoo should have all our life history and we don't.
aminu man commented
It's great having you back in business after all these years. I can see your security has gone up with the multiple 'prove you're not a robot' while I was signing in. 🤣😃😂😆 Nice having you back but I lost everything, everything in my inbox! 😊 Can't I just get anything back? Messages, contacts, drafts and others 😊👍💖
