    Default can not do a search within Yahoo Mail

    Am I the only one who recently can not do a search within my Yahoo Mail? Tried Safari and Firefox, both no success :-(, have contacted Yahoo but no reply......

    Now I have to sift through each page to find certain mails.......

    Argh. What do you mean by "no success"? Outline what you did and the unexpected results.

    Lets say I am in my Mail inbox:

    I do a 'search mail' for some mail I received in the recent past, and type in a name of a person that sends me mails regularly.........(those mails ARE in the inbox). I get a 0 search result.

    Search Results

    Sorry. We didn't find any results matching the following criteria:

    • containing the search term: leung

    You might want to:
    • Broaden your search by using fewer search terms
    • Check your spelling
    • Try using different words that mean the same thing

    maybe the sql engine was down/maxed out at the time you were trying to do a search. Try searching again a little later and see if you have the same problem.

    I would suggest trying a search on another computer other than your own.
