Why can't I search the SPAM folder?

Why can't I search the SPAM folder?

Hi All,

 

I have found a few expected emails in my SPAM. I know that, going forward, I can add the senders to my address box to ensure that emails from these senders end up in my Inbox. But I would like to find all of the wanted emails in the SPAM folder so that I can archive them properly. My first step was to perform a search in "All Mail", but it won't return results from SPAM. When I try to limit the search to the SPAM folder, it is NOT an option. So, how do I quickly find all the emails from a particular sender that were misclassified to SPAM in order to move them to my Inbox em masse? Thanks!

Yahoo has excluded that folder and the Trash folder from their Search feature.  The best you can currently do is to open the folder and sort by Sender, Subject, or Date.  If you believe Yahoo should include the Spam folder in searches you can post that suggestion on the feedback board.
