    thanks for the reply Robert, however i doubt youve seen this one before. In my inbox, i have about 15 messages that I have kept in the last week. Now down in the bottom right corner it displays messages 1-25 then it says next page. When I click next page, the first 3 messages are within the last 7 days. However, heres my problem, the 4th message (message 29 in my inbox) goes ALL the way back to 6 months ago!! So now, i have lost ALL of my messages that I have purposely kept in my inbox over the last 6 months :(

    This is happening when with Firefox, Safari, and Opera. So i KNOW that this is a yahoo issue.

    What do you suggest?

    I have seen part of the problem but luckly don't get enough mail there to loose any.

    In the mail there is a help menu top right and if that is selected you can contact technical support which maybe able to help.

    I have done some checking and they are rather light on info and there so far doesn't seem to be much in the way of places offering help.

    One thing I have noticed over time is yahoo seems to be updating the mail a lot and I have seen some strange things happen.

    One thing whch may or may not work is changng the mail back from the new version they have had a for a while now back to what they call classic mail. This may allow the mail to be seen again.

    I will do some more digging and see what I can find the in the way of links to help.

    Also Yahoo's tech forum, such that it is, is part of Yahoo Answers. I know, it's a cesspool, but....

    Did you look in trash to see if the msgs are there? If they're not, I think you need to go straight to Yahoo tech support -- I don't think it's likely that there's a fix you can do yourself.

    Rob,

    Im on Classic version, so i switched to the new version, and still the same problem :(

    I did find the contact customer care and filled out all the info. Hopefully they reply.

    Thank you for your help Rob!
