Why, since change over from BT Yahoo to BT mail, when I download my messages fom BT To Windows Live Mail do they not go into the BT Trash Box like they used to?


Every mail provider has its own way of deleting or trashing the mail. Also each account has its own folder for trash. You should look in the Trash folder of the correct provider and correct account. But look careful. It could be your not trowing it away, but archiving the mail to a complete other folder from BT mail. Swiping to the left can deletion but like in Gmail, swiping to the left is archiving.

Why can't I see old emails that are in my folders?


Are you actually - really - putting them in a folder or using the ARCHIVE button, which is in the tool bar over an open email with the arrow on it.

If you did archive them, they are in ALL MAIL...

All your archived messages can be found with search or by looking in the All Mail view. When someone responds to a message you've archived, the conversation containing that message will reappear in your inbox.

your email may have been archived or worse, a reply may have removed it from the inbox.

You may want to go to the setting page, and go to folders. you may want to enable the "All mail" folder. For some reason, gmail tends to enable conversation view and keep emails in the sent folder, for emails you replied too. Even iff you disable conversation view.

This folder however, has all emails including emails you moved to folders.

Also, if you know who the original sender is you can search for email in all folders. however if you deleted it, by accident and its been longer than a week, its gone. How this helps.

I can't read offline and any messages on screen, and can't send messages too.


Dear Friend,

Please download latest version of Yahoo Messenger....... and use following instructions -

Click the Messenger menu in Messenger.
  1. Select Preferences.
  2. Click the Archive category.
  3. Check the Enable Archiving option. Enable each item that you want to archive. If you'd like to automatically delete archives after a certain number of days, place a check in the box next to Automatically Delete Files Older Than and enter a number.
  4. Click OK at the bottom of the window.
Please Note: Uncheck the Enable Archiving option if you'd like to disable Archiving.
To view your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the archive folder you want to review.
To delete your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the Messages folder and then click the X button if you want to delete your complete Message Archive or select the desired folder and then click X to selectively delete.
A few things to remember:
  • Under the Message menu, you can reply, save, and print messages, as well as view your archiving preferences.
  • Under the Edit menu, you can copy messages to your clipboard or delete messages.
  • Under the View menu, you can enable timestamps.
Please Note: Archives (.dat files located on your system) are encrypted and can only be viewed by the Yahoo! ID that created them. These archives are stored locally on your system, so the conversations held on that specific computer are only accessible from that computer. Once archives are deleted, they're gone, and cannot be retrieved.


Please vote after working...

Cannot get email


This is a very common problem. Upgrading you iphone firmware if it's not current may solve this problem. Or try changing your address for the account from example@yahoo.com" to your yahoo id without the "@yahoo.com"

Otherwise the built-in yahoo option for iphone can be buggy:
  1. Delete the Yahoo account on your iphone
  2. Create anew account via Other option
  3. Fill in the usual user id and password fields
  4. Under IMAP tab set Host Name under Incoming Mail Server to imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com
  5. Under Outgoing Mail Server, in Host Name field set it to cwmx.com
If you have a very large yahoo inbox, you may have to do the following:

1. Go to your yahoo account in a regular browser on your computer. Makesure you're using the new version of Yahoo mail (the one that looks andfeels like outlook).

2. Create a new folder. I called mine "archive - inbox".

3. Select ALL emails in your inbox so that your inbox folder will becompletely empty once you move them (there's a box you can check whichwill select everything). I had over 5,000 emails in my inbox, so thiswould have taken ages using the Classic version of Yahoo mail.

4. Move all emails to your newly created archive folder. Go back intothe archive folder and select any unread/new emails and move them backto your inbox.

5. Go into Yahoo on your iphone and refresh the mail. This will clearout the old emails and download the most recent emails from your inbox.

Yahoo email


Did you give Yahoo any details after the initial suspension email? You may have fallen foul of a phishing scam, and the email may have likely been faked. In which case, contact Yahoo immediately, and change all your passwords.
