    Try pressing the "advanced search" link on the sidebar and making sure
    all the mail folders are selected. If they aren't, select them and then
    search using the advanced search.

    i tried the above method but getting same problem , can not search older emails, i can search only one month old emails.
    i think , leaving yahoo will be the only solution.

    I get no results at all. The search function used to work perfectly. lately I get no results whatsoever - even when I search for something that I know is there because I am looking at it.

    I have the same search issue, it only shows results from the last year.

    Similar problem. Yahoo email search will find messages up to about 5 months old. Then it does not find messages between 6 and 10 months. Then it does find messages over 10 months.

    In other words the search appears to block out messages between 6 and 10 months old.

    Using advanced search makes no difference at all.

    Yahoo mail search is no longer working reliably. It worked until recently.

    I spent at least a half hour with yahoo tech support yesterday for this same problem. I used to be able to search all messages automatically. Now, I only get results for the last day or two. Tech support couldn't solve it. I guess it's Yahoo, not my computer or settings

Why is google now yahoo?

Change your search defaults in Chrome's settings to whatever search engine you prefer. As far as accessing gmail, I would clear the old content (cache) and try again.

This is just a guess here.. But it seems like you may have inadvertently added a search engine referral "program". It isn\'t an actual program, typically. It is also referred to as a hijacker. You put in an address say Yahoo and when you search you get results from something OTHER than Yahoo. A popular hijacker is Trovi. So you search yahoo and all of sudden you are getting results from Trovi. These are typically easy to remove. It does depend on the browser though. And since you didn\'t really provide that info, I suggest you try to research how to remove them. Typically you can look for add ons or search engines in the tools/options section of the browser. Lastly, if you just cannot get search results, try accessing the browser\'s help menu. F1 on Windows OS\'s. Hope this helps! Browser hijacking

I am using Yahoo Canada mail. Just like everyone else, I cannot search for old email messages. The search always fails and brings up no results, even though I can see the very e-mails I am searching for....

That problem is known as Yahoo Mail search bug and probably will be fixed during the time but anyway search functions in web based E-mails generally are bad. Best solution for you will be to use MS Outlook to create local copy of Yahoo E-mails and for searching through E-mails there is excellent search engine witch you can install and it is free edition that search will index all your E-mails in MS Outlook and other files in your computer.

Search engine brings up something different than what I put in to search

Typically I believe Y! and IE work hand in hand. Since IE is the default browser of choice on most computers. I know there is a Google/IE hijacker which will briefly flash your correct results then redirect to an alternate page. You may want to take care of that.
