I want to find the messages that do not contain the term facebook in my Yahoo inbox.

How can I do that?


According to Yahoo search tips, you can use the - operator to exclude terms: -facebook

  • I tried - syntax but it results in no message found – Nam G VU Mar 20 '13 at 2:29

Looks like you have to have a search term to find along with the one you want to 'not find. So try this...

a -facebook

find all messages with the letter a in it and without the word facebook in.
