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.

Don't charge people for basic customer service support. I have an old account (just reactivated) that I need help with for time sensitive legal reasons and just want to know if old emails are archived and even accessible. A standard 800# and/or live chat like everyone else seems to have seems like a basic tool that you should not have to pay for.

After not signing to my account for a long time, I am not happy because I was looking for my previous emails but after login to my email I can't access any of my previous emails and I really need them back, please may you support me in this,
George Clint commented
Yahoo should not delete data befor informing the users, despite the time of non use. At least notification with prenotice must be given.

I deleted the last 7 months of emails from my inbox by mistake today 23/01/2020, Tried the restore link on the website but it just sends me in a loop of the same questions without actually sending a restore email request. Who do i contact to get my emails restored?

kerem kurum commented
I was signed in 2002 and now this was my fault to use Yahoo? How can you delete all my information without any permission? even any notice?
I want you to restore my mails and folders immediately

I am sure that I used my e-mail less than one year ago. I forgot the password, so I did several attempts. Finally, I entered. Verification code was sent to my recovery e-mail, which I successfully inserted. Nevertheless, when I logged into my account everything was COMPLETELY EMPY (inbox, sent, drafts, archive, spam).
I am sure that something happened immediately after my entry. I was trying to recover a password from a web site. This web site sent me a new password to the e-mail. After entering into my e-mail, I found out that everything was empty and not even the expected new password. I am sure that the web site sent me a recovery password, because I tried second time and I received one new mail in my EMPTY inbox – the second recovery password from the aforementioned web site.
