I have a folder with 1000s of emails. I'm looking for a particular email from 2011 I know is in this folder. When I try to search, Yahoo automatically redirects to my inbox, and searches the inbox.
How can I search through folders?
You can click the search field to get the drop-down to appear, then click "Advanced Search" which, among other things, gives you the option to search within a specific folder.
Easier, though, might be to just use the
in: search operator.
in:folder-name search terms
If your folder name has spaces in it, just enclose it in double-quotes:
in:"folder name" search terms
