lost two months of emails from my Yahoo account

Something strange i observed today morning in my Yahoo account. The whole month of emails between August and September 2017 were missing from my yahoo mail account Inbox. Did tried to search some known email addresses but they were completely gone from my account.

Searching on web was also not helpful. Yahoo help site is just moving into circles and i was not able to contact any customer support.

Anyone experience the missing emails from their yahoo accounts?

cheers,

Are they in the trash bin?
Do you still have older mails in the same folder?
Are they automatically deleted? (as in check your settings)

Did you change app, started using an extra app or changed settings in your local app, or did an update that might have caused settings to change over the last months?

I don't have any apps and i didn't change any settings, as per my knowledge. i can only login with my phone now instead of using the password.
i will try to install yahoo app on my phone and see if the results are same like desktop.

I closed my Yahoo account. They are a mess! Over 3 billion user accounts have been hacked. Not saying this is what happened to you; however, you might want to consider deleting the account altogether. Here is some information: Here Here ....Good Luck!

Re: lost two months of emails from my Yahoo account

I use Yahoo for mails and as a generic memory notepad, recently I am getting SMSīs from Yahoo telling me that my login attempt was unsuccessful, even though I had not logged in. I changed my passwords but I get these SMSīs again and again.
