Yahoo Email deleted all my emails..


I had my Yahoo account since 18 Years old. I logged into my account after like a year or 2 at max on 29 May 2019.

When, I logged in A messaged Poped out that your account is being made as it is logged in after 12 months. And when It opened everything was gone.. I had emails of 18 years and everything in it..

Now, I want it back. What is the best way to get it back. I emailed on the yahoo help but they won't reply me. Plus, I see messages on the Help site that messages deleted older than 7 days cannot be retrieved back.

someone can help your this friend over here.. guys.
For a Start,

1) Those Emails were very extremely important to me.. 18 years of data.. I could not log in for a long time due to some circumstances.

2) And Now that only 2 days have passed since I last logged in, and not yet completed 7 days... are their any chances of retrieving the data.. yahoo gives 1 TB of space for what if it has to delete all the data on it's own without giving the permission to do so.

3) Can you or anyone else has Yahoo's email or whatsapp whom I can contact and ask for my query. very very very important to me.

hoping for your cooperation guys..

Re: yahoo mail

All you can do: contact , their official customer service. The least they can do (and I'm afraid it's all they can do) is to explain their policies and tell you where you could have read them.

As way say here: "You only lose what you don't backup." Not having a backup of important information is a bad idea.

read their terms of use

yahoo deleted your emails because they felt you abandoned your account by not accessing it for a couple of years. you were lucky you had your notes and calendars and you were lucky the account was not given to another user.

Their might be a way

Their might be a way still.. If, I can tell them somehow to use some recovery programs after all I have been with them for 18 years ; can they do it and bring back my lost data..

as if

you are talking about a free account you abandoned according to their rules. why would they help someone who did not abide by their rules nor keep a backup copy of emails they could not afford to lose.

yahoo free account not the issue..

What rules.. Their is always a trust in between.. it is not about free account.. they should not have done it in any sense .. having a relation of 18 years,,, and then just think about the mails I had,.. deleted all.. their must be a way out.. that is why I am discussing it over here..

what rules

the terms of service YOU agreed to when you originally signed up for the account.

Discussing it here is best.

That way you know what to expect and to never flame over this since well, that only seals your fate.

So after this discussion you collect your thoughts and find a way to swallow any preconceived ideas about what you think they owe you then be ready to prostrate yourself.

Only they can do something so demanding or lashing out (again) only seals your fate.

This is not a new problem. Folk seem to flame out over this one. Good luck with their support as recovery is all on them. If you blow up at them, you've sealed the old data's fate.

Well remember they are a business and

if a person doesn't login for long periods of time it's costing them money since they are managing and supporting their email servers. The disk space is valuable and they would rather reuse disk space form abandoned accounts then to keep buying more disk space.

Retrieve your Yahoo data

There is a rule for every account that If you haven't signed into your account in over 12 months, your account may have been permanently deleted from Yahoo's server.
In that case, you can directly connect with Yahoo's support team, they will guide you and assist you. go to Yahoo's original website only.

I know that you guys have replied my query and are finding reasonable answers for my issue.
But, now what ever the issue has gone into and they deleted all my emails and their were really very very important emails in it and now if their could be any way I contact yahoo in someway or the other and they could do something about my emails. they already give a 1 TB hard drive to everyone, maybe they have it some where in their vault or something,
