    What program were you using for your mail? Was it even a program or was it web-based?

    That sort of thing REALLY matters...

    So this issue is independent of your MacBook, assuming you're checking your mail via mail.yahoo.com or something like that. You'll need to check your trash there and see if they still exist. If not, you may be able to contact yahoo and see if there's some way to recover (there usually is, like in the case of law enforcement).

    If you're checking Yahoo mail via mail.app (The mail program on the Mac), deleting things there may only be app specific (depends on how you have the server setup as in delete once read or keep on server, etc etc) and the mail may still be in your inbox/trash folder if you login via the web interface.

    Providing details really helps us figure out your issue...seeing how none of us were there/know how you access your mail or how your mail is setup...
