Can I recover deleted emails from 6 months ago

Customer Question

can I recover deleted emails from 6 months ago
Submitted: 4 months ago.
Category: Computer
Expert:  Chris L. replied 4 months ago.


Unfortunately yahoo email that was deleted will go to the trash folder and then will be held there for up to one month at the maximum. The reason being is because if yahoo held every email people deleted for years they would run out of space to store them all so that is why there is a limit on how long they remain in the trash folder.

Once they are deleted from the trash they are gone for good I am sorry to say.

Please take a moment to rate my service by clicking 3 stars or more. I understand you may not be happy with the situation however the rating is meant for me personally not yahoo or their policies or procedures.

Thank you,
