Recover emails from childhood as well as the deceased
I had an email account from 2001-2005. I am absolutely devastated all my emails are gone when Yahoo decided to erase all our content. I must have some written when I was around 13 years-old that were on there. Also I had emails from my grandmother. She died in 2008. Is there anyway to get these emails back?
We are sorry to hear about your loss!
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.
