I was using my synced messages folder to store receipts and confirmations. Somehow the folder emptied.
Is there any way to get these back? That was a Yahoo Mail account.
Why is there now a folder in my account called "Synced Messages"?
What do you mean by "synced messages folder" and are you reading your email through a web browser or through software on the computer (in which case, which software)?
when I opened my yahoo account years ago, on my mobile, the sight comes with--inbox, drafts, stared,sent, spam and trash. Under the heading "folders" it has-- synced messages, unsubscribe, videos and an option to create a folder. Being too lazy to make a folder I just started sticking my important mail into synced messages to retrieve later. The sight looks the same on my laptop as is does on my android however, I use a tether through my phone for my internet connection. I probably did something to make these mails disappear and I did get a new phone last month but it was, and is working well. The only thing different is I opened a Samsung account to go with the phone. I just want to know if it is possible to find these mails somewhere.
You can ask Yahoo to recover your message within 7 days of deletion. See http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/restore.html . I suggest that in the future you don't store your messages in a system-created folder such as this one, but create your own folder. This way, you will be the only one in control of the contents of the folder.
