How To Restore Deleted Emails In Yahoo:

There are the following methods you must try:

1. From the Trash

When you delete an item from the inbox of your Yahoo account, it gets moved into the Trash. Every Yahoo account has a Trash folder where you’ll be able to find previously as well as recently deleted emails. 

Mails often get accidentally deleted by us and this is when the trash folder comes in to help find and retrieve the deleted mail into the inbox of the Yahoo account. 

The emails in the Trash folder are organized by dates and times. So the ones that you’ve received and deleted earlier stay at the bottom of the list. The newer ones that you’ve deleted recently stay at the top. Therefore, if you want to find the ones that you deleted long back, you’ll need to scroll down the list and find them.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: You’ll need to have the Yahoo mail app on your mobile. It should be updated to the latest version. 

Step 2: Next, you’ll need to open it. You need to log in to your Yahoo mail account by entering the login credentials. 

Step 3: After logging in, you’ll be able to see the Inbox of your Yahoo mail account.
