How to Delete Your Unread Messages From Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail helps you identify any emails that you have not read or marked as unread by making the mail headers bold. You may identify the contents of some of the emails you received from others without opening them just by looking at the subjects. Delete any of these unread emails if you are confident that the mail is either spam or mail that you do not need.

  • Log into your Yahoo! Mail account (see Resources). Choose a folder such as the "Inbox" that contains the unread messages that you want to delete.

  • Click the checkboxes that are next to any unread emails that you wish to delete.

  • Click the "Delete" button to delete all of the messages that you selected.

Tips & Warnings

  • Click the "Unread Messages" link above the action buttons to hide all read messages so the unread messages remain. If you are not using Yahoo! Mail Classic, click the "Actions" button and click "Unread" to put all unread messages on top.
  • If you accidentally deleted a message, go to "Trash" folder and find it there. You still have the opportunity to view the unread message by clicking on it or moving the message to another folder by clicking the "Move" button.
  • Perform steps 2 and 3 in the "Trash" folder if you want to permanently delete any unread messages.
  • Yahoo! regularly deletes unread messages in the "Trash" and you won't have any option to recover them once you no longer see them there. Keep any messages that you are not sure of deleting outside the "Trash."
