    New emails show in Unread folder, but they do not appear in my Inbox. I have tried just about everything. Made sure filters are turned off, all applicable updates, etc.

    It's ****. Showing unread messages doesn't do anything. I also have a draft message that won't show, and won't go away.

    In my inbox is shows that I have 1 unread email but there are no unread emails. All emails show as read except this one which has been proven to be very irritating the last three days.

    I just fixed this. I had a continual 9 emails listed on the header, but nothing in my inbox. I read a solution here, and went back to yahoo email page. Sure enough, 9 emails I had saved were saved as unread. I marked them as read and ta-daa, I'm cured. Thanks for saving me from myself. lol

My tab is telling me i have 72 unread but no in my inbox

Yes, this type of problem happed to me too. Actually, this is not a problem. What happens, sometime junk mails comes that has delivery date in the distant past. So, these mails are not shown your current page. If you go to older emails you will find them.

So what you can do is:
1. Click on the "Next" link at the bottom of the page.
2. Keep clicking the link until you get those unread mail.
3. You can also click on "Unread" link at the top of the Inbox page.

This will show you the unread mails.

I have emails showing as unread but they are not showing in my in box why is that?

Hi sheila_wordi,

This means that the unread emails in your inbox are new emails.

this means you should open them unless you know who they are sent from.

i hope this helps, good luck!

No I didn't, still the message indicater shows message in INBOX, but INBOX is empty?????????????

The indicator takes into account of other mail folders. For example if you have unread deleted items, unread draft items, RSS feeds, etc. then also message indicator will not show empty.

Inbox shows 1 unread message even when inbox is empty

Open the inbox and click View All Messages, click unread messages, if you have any on the last page as late arrivals or in folders they will show. This has been happening to all of us while yahoo has been upgrading the classic mail. Yahoo says this is a glitch and will clear on it's own. Did for all of us. Refreshing the page, restarting the comp and clicking on the number don't work. Only Yahoo and time. When it happened to me, my mail alerts also quit working so I had to continually look to see if I had new mail. It was maddening, then all of a sudden one day it cleared and my alerts were restored all on it's own.
