Is there a way to show only unread messages in Yahoo mail?

Asked by sfgal (277 points ) July 23rd, 2007

My yahoo email is telling me that I have one unread message. But I don't see any unread messages! I know that sometimes there is a delay and an unread message pops up days later or weeks later. I've scrolled back through 2 months of saved email and there are no new unread questions. Is there a way to display only unopened messages, so I can find it? I have over 10,000 messages in my account, so far all of them seem to be read except for this elusive one. I can't scroll through hundreds of pages of email to see if I can find the one subject line in bold that is unopened. Ideas?

If you're using the old Yahoo Mail, click on your inbox. Right below Inbox, there's a little "view" button. Click "view unread messages." Voila.

For the new Yahoo Mail, click "view" at the top of the toolbar, and click "sort by unread."

I've had this happen, too, sfgal. It's almost always a spam message where the sender faked the date header to a date in the past. Use ben's tip and be sure to mark it as spam!
