    On my own home computer (Windows XP), I attempted to scan from my HP all purpose PSC 2355 to E-mail which it said it could do. I hit scan on the HP and then after doing its thing, a form came up on the screen where I inserted the destination and a brief message and then hit send or whatever word they used for that. I had not previously done this.
    I also copied it to myself at When I then checked for my copy, the entire box was blank. I still have the content of other compartments such as "sent" and "personal", etc. Only Inbox was affected. I then sent one of the remaining others to my inbox and it showed up. I did not go into it, however and after I returned from my yahoo, the inbox was emptly again. Can you help?

Retrieve incoming messages

Which operating system and browser >???
There have been some changes to Yahoo Mail

There is now BASIC where you can still set the number per page or the FULL FEATURED version.

It is not available in the Full Featured version.

You could try the Basic option so that you can choose the number of email displayed in your inbox pages.
You may lose other features you like in the Full Featured version, it will be your choice what is most important to you.

If you decide to use Basic, here is how to set the number of messages per page:

Click on the little wheel to the right of the "hi .. your name"

On the next page, over on the right, under Mail Options, click on "General"

You can then customize the number of messages under "behavior"
It might be a browser issue. Try using something like Chrome or Firefox. They work well with yahoo mail.

You can decide to import all your contacts, and old mail, or some portion of thereof. 4 .Note that only messages currently in your INBOX will be imported, and they will be automatically labelled with the name of your yahoo account. If you have other folders in your yahoo account that you want imported, you'll need to rotate those messages into your yahoo INBOX.

How do i retrieve deleted messages from the trash folder

If you act quickly, there's a chance Yahoo! can restore your mailbox to a previous state from a backup copy, recovering your lost messages whether you accidentally emptied the Trash folder containing an important email or whether a Yahoo! Mail glitch made mail disappear. Of course, you can also undelete a message quickly as long as it is still in your Yahoo! Mail's Trash folder. Undelete Mail in Yahoo! Mail To undelete a message in Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic:
  • Go to the Trash folder.
  • Open the desired message.
  • Click Move in the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  • Select Inbox or any other folder to recover the message.
    • In Yahoo! Mail, you can also drag and drop the email to any folder, of course.

Message in my inbox

I have a similar problem and was unable to get into the inbox or sent items. You can get access to your mail by following the link below.

This is the second time Yahoo Mail has gone haywire since October 2008 and they really ought to get their act together.

You may have problems replying from the above link though. I would recommend you try another email address to reply, that is if the reply is important.

Good luck.

Want yahoo mail sent to my MSN mail inbox

I guess what you mean is how you can import your messages to MSN mail box. You can only import or export your contacts vice versa.

The easy way although quite tedious is to go to your inbox and forward the messages to your email address in your MSN mail.

e.g open your inbox ....... click the message and open it.
click the forward button and type in your MSN email address and click send.

Another quicker way although not tested is to convert your yahoo email to the yahoo classis email. it has better features to forward many messages simultaenously
