Re: Canotot move email from Sent


I checked out the account and everything seems to be working fine. I was able to move a Sent email to the Inbox without any trouble. If needed, take a look at the browser troubleshooting steps in this post to see if that fixes the issue.

Re: Canotot move email from Sent

No.  I can't save emails from 'sent' to folders other than 'inbox'.


And if I select emails from a sender in the 'inbox'  and then add 'all' to capture emails I sent to the sender, I can't move them to a folder for that sender.

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.
