How do I get Yahoo Mail to properly sync with Outlook Express?

I configured my Yahoo Mail ID in Outlook Express and received my mail in Outlook’s inbox. Unfortunately, my Yahoo Mail inbox then emptied out. Please suggest how to recover my missing mail in my Yahoo Mail inbox.

I forgot to configure Outlook to keep a copy in server option.

    To have the mail both on the Yahoo servers and on your client (Outlook Express), you need to use IMAP instead of POP. You'll find the settings at
    http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_MOBILE&page=content&id=SLN4075 . Once you set up the account as IMAP, you'll be able to drag the message back from the local Inbox to the IMAP inbox (it'll make more sense when you see it on the screen).
