I assume from yahoo?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
from yahoo. The message says Yahoo! mail Error: this message could not be displayed
they didn't show up until 1:00 this afternoon...

This is a problem on Yahoo's end. Just leave them alone and they will most likely disappear.

If they don't, email or contact Yahoo support and ask them to reset your Mailbox. That should release them and they will either be available to delete or they will disappear.
