When a time comes that you want to sort the mail, you may find the unopened missives piled together with what you have already read.
Instead of wading through hundreds, perhaps thousands of messages to get what you need, tell Yahoo! to show you only what you want to see.
Log in to Yahoo! Mail.
Click "Inbox" either on the folder pane on the left or in the middle of the page.
Click "Unread Messages" above the list of messages.
Click "Next" or "Previous" to browse the messages, if there is more unread mail than can be displayed on a single page in the inbox.
Look on the folder pane on the left.
If you see any folder name in bold with a number in parentheses next to its name, it contains unread mail.
Click that folder to open it.
Yahoo! Mail Beta
Log in to Yahoo! Mail Beta.
Click "Inbox" on the left pane under "Compose message."
Click the purple color to the left of the "From" tab above the messages list.

Fix Yahoo Email When It Won't Open Attachments
Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.
In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.
If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.
Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.
Reload the page.
lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.
Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted.
Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.
Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.
For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.
