Search Function in Yahoo Mail

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by Telegram Sam, Jan 22, 2016.

    I am now experiencing repeatedly the inability of the Search Function in Yahoo Mail to retrieve recent as opposed to older emails, using the same tools as before and looking for emails than can, with an effort, be found by looking manually (scrolling).
    Has anyone experienced the same and/or has found a fix and/or has been successful in getting through to and getting a response from Yahoo "Help"?

    I have not run into this issue. Has it happened just recently for you? Perhaps it's a temporary issue?

    It is certainly a relatively recent phenomenon but difficult to say just how recent. I thought it might be a bug with Yahoo itself (rumours that they are no longer investing in Mail) but until other users report similar findings I cannot say - nor predict how long it will take for the issue to be resolved. You would think that the problem would be cloud-based rather than something to do with my PC settings.

    Yahoo Help must also be awarded a medal for being the most inaccessible "Help" department. I cannot put this problem to them. Does anyone know how to make contact with a human person there, not a virtual FAQ person?

    Are you saying that it is possible to do searches of my (recent) emails using a different independent non-Yahoo web mail search facility???
