Look in the junk mail folder... if it's not there look in the deleted files folder... it may have been deleted in error.

Delete all Spam Files


You will have to check off one-by-one the spam emails and delete. Here is a tip for avoiding spam...
How to avoid spam
1. Use email filtering software at your email gateway to block spam as well as email-borne spyware, viruses and worms.
2. Never make a purchase from an unsolicited email. By making a purchase, you are funding future spam.
3. If you don't know the sender of an unsolicited email, delete it. Spam can contain dangerous malware that can compromise your computer.
4. Don't use the preview mode in your email viewer. Many spammers can track when a message is viewed, even if you don't click on the email. If you view a spam email, it confirms your address to the spammers.
5. Don't overexpose your email address. Posting to mailing lists that are archived online, publishing your address publicly on social networks, and using an easily guessable address based on your name and company makes you an easy mark for spammers.
6. Keep your work and personal email separate. And use one or two secondary email addresses for when you fill out web registration forms or surveys on sites from which you don't want further information.

How can I limit spam mail without closing account and opening another?


Don't Post Addresses Online- Never post email addresses online such as in message boards, forums or on websites for all to see. Spammers (and Phishers) have automated processes that can 'harvest' these. If you must post it, then disguise the format (e.g. john.smithATgmailDOTcom).
- If you receive a lot of spam, a web search for your email address may reveal whether it is posted anywhere online and you can remove it.
Avoid Common, Guessable Formats- The more complicated your email address, the less likely it will become a target for spam. Spammers use software that trys to guess email addresses and a commonly used format such as firstname.surname@company.com will be a greater target of attack than firstname1_surname1@company.com.
- Obviously, the trade-off is that your email address will not be quite as memorable or look as nice.
Limit Sharing of Addresses- The more you share your email address, the more spam you will receive, it is that simple.
- Never share your primary personal or work email addresses with those you don't know or trust.
Use 'Disposable' Addresses- Many stores and online services request email addresses for things like account registration, mailing lists and discounts. Set up an email address specifically for these cases, so you do not have to use your primary personal or work email address.
- When spam becomes an issue for this additional email address, simply dispose of it and set up a new one. Services such as Gmail allow you to check and send from different email addresses in one place, facilitating easy management of multiple addresses.
No Email Based Screen Names- If you participate in message boards, chatrooms, Twitter or similar where you display an on-screen name, don't use your email address before the @ sign as the screen name.
- Spammers will often take screen names and add common email endings such as @gmail.com, @yahoo.com and @hotmail.com, in order to guess legitimate email addresses.
Delete without Opening- It is often obvious from the subject line that an email is spam.
- Simply add the sender to your spam filter and delete the email without even opening it. If you do not open it, there is no possibility of the spammer being informed that your email account is active.
Disable Automatic Content Downloads
- Automatically downloading images or other dynamic content in emails might make them look nice, but can reveal to the spammer that your email account is active.
- As a minimum, turn off automatic image downloads in your emails until you are sure the email is trusted and not spam or a phishing email. Specifying to read messages in plain text only will add a further level of security, as all dynamic content will be blocked from download.
Don't Forward Spam- Be wary of emails from anyone asking you to forward the email on, such as petition, chain or joke emails. By forwarding these emails, you are effectively spamming others.
- In addition, these emails are used by spammers to obtain legitimate email addresses for spamming, as they contain the email address of everyone who has forwarded the message along with the addresses of everyone each person forwarded it to.
Never Reply or Click the Links- Clicking links, including the ubiquitous 'unsubscribe' link, in spam emails or replying to spam, will confirm to the spammer that your email account is active, resulting in more spam being received. It may also direct you to a website that contains malware.
- Never reply to spam and avoid clicking links in spam emails. Only click the 'unsubscribe' link for marketing emails you remember signing up for.
Never Purchase anything from Spam- Don't fall for products or services advertised in spam emails, no matter how good they may sound. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
- Buying something advertised in spam only supports the case for spamming and will likely increase the amount of spam you receive, as the spammers now know you are willing to buy.
Avoid Opting In- When purchasing or registering something online, there are usually one or more checkboxes allowing you to opt out of marketing communications or sharing of your information with other 'partners'. If you opt in, you may be opting in to a lot of future spam.
- Always read the opt-out messages with care, as these are cleverly worded to get you to opt-in. Some of them require either selection or de-selection to opt out, whilst others require a mix of selection and de-selection to fully opt out!
Read Privacy Policies- Always read the website's privacy policy before purchasing products or registering your details for software or services online.
- Understand how your email address may be used and whether they can share or sell it to other third parties, who could be spammers.
Use a Spam filter- Activate Phishing and Spam filters on your email account and in your Internet browser to help ensure you avoid receiving spam in the first place.
- Most reputable email service providers will have spam filters that you can turn on, some of which allow very granular policies to be set.
Report Spam- Report spam that does slip through the net to your email service provider or your company, as applicable.
- This will add the sender to their spam filters, identify whether spam filter policies need to be updated and will block future spam from that sender appearing in your inbox again. Reporting spam can also result in the spammer being identified and criminally prosecuted.
Keep Anti-Virus Software Updated- Ensure your anti-virus software is kept up to date and download the latest signatures on a daily basis.
- A lot of malware is designed to access your email contacts and send spam or malware to them from your email account without you even realising.
If it all gets too much...- Finally, if the amount of spam becomes too much to control, you may simply have to start again and obtain a new email address.
- Monitor the old email account in parallel to ensure that all legitimate contacts have your new email address, then delete the old one.

I keep getting emails for VIAGRA from http://c52.pharmaborep.pl-


Which email account ?
Have a look at the bottom of the email see if there is an unsubscribe option.
or block the sender
If you've had an email address for more than a day, you've almost certainly come across an email address that you wish you could block.

Well, there's good news: you can block specific email addresses with most email clients. According to campaignmonitor.com, and as of January 2010, Microsoft Outlook,

Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail were the three most popular email clients.
Each client shared one thing in common: the ability to block email addresses, and the process is simple, too.Yahoo! Mail


Visit Yahoo.com and sign into your Yahoo! Mail account.


Click "Options" in the right corner of the screen. Select "More Options."

Select "Spam" in the left window pane.
Enter the email address of the person you wish to block under "Blocked Email Addresses." Click "Add."
Hotmail

Visit MSN.com and sign into your Hotmail account.
Click the "Options" button and select "Mail."
Choose "Junk E-mail Protection."
Find and click "Block Senders."

Type in the email address you wish to block in the provided text box.
Click "Add."
Hotmail will automatically block all future email messages from that sender.
Microsoft Outlook

Open Microsoft Outlook. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options."
Select "Preferences" and click "Junk E-mail."
Click "Blocked Senders" and then click on the "Add" button.
Type the email address of the person or company you wish to block.

Click "OK" to confirm your decision.

Hi i want to retrieve my messages in month of may 2011.pls important


Could you please clarify with more details? It's not possible without knowing the details how you deleted them. Did you delete them from the Yahoo!Mail or from Microsoft Outlook or from an email program?. I would suggest you to first check the "Trash", it's located below the "Inbox" icon. Click the "Trash" link to open it and check whether your May's emails are there or not. Never click the "Empty" which is beside the "Trash", doing so will delete everything in your trash folder. If you find them in the "Trash", select and click "Move" and then select "Inbox", whatever you've selected will be back to your "Inbox".
*Note: By default, emails deleted from the "Spam" folder are deleted forever. Also, emails deleted from the "Trash" are be deleted forever. There is no way that you can retrieve them, but if you access your Yahoo! Mail from email program/s like Microsoft Outlook or thunderbird, copy of everything is transferred to your computer.

Please let me know with more details so that I can help you better. But before you reply, try what I've mentioned above.
Good Luck.

How can i retrieve sent deleted mail on yahoo


Its hard to retrieve a deleted email.You sould have put it in the folder or something.There is a deleted tab in the email. If you deleted it from there too, then you cant retrieve it. But like beside inbox and sent message and draft, there's one that says deleted and spam. click on deleted.
If that doesnt work,try writing to Yahoo if the mail is that important.
