Alot of it may come down to how you are connecting to the email server.
If you are connecting through an IMAP sort of auto connection to the yahoo servers, it usualy syncs ALL the folders which are on the webmail, to whatever client you are using.
Setting it up to collect via PoP, will copy EVERYTHING.. but not via folders, so that will include all pre filtered spam, etc. Also depending on settings, will leave stuff on the server or completely remove it (so you couldnt view via web mail later)
Yahoo mail shows spam I cannot see in MS Outlook client
Hi all - I have a need to monitor my spam folder in MS Outlook. In Yahoo mail I see the Spam folder with messages but nothing in MS Outlook. What do I need to change in my settings? - Thanks
Can I remove the local folders from online Yahoo mail?
I've noticed that recently my local folders - (in my Thunderbird mail program on my PC) are replicated in the online version of the same account. The problem with this is that depending on whether my PC is on or not mail will arrive in either the online Inbox, or the Inbox inside Folders which is linked to my home setup.
Further complicating this is that the Rules I have setup at home will move online mail into a folder before its read, so new mail can be found in several places. If they want to replicate the setup on my home PC online, then there should be no online folders - but there both exist. Is there any way to stop this new linking feature?
Good day @Charles_I,
Thank you for your post!
I know how important it is to identify your new and unread emails quickly.
I can imagine the inconveniences caused by not seeing the messages you receive right away.
To manage your email folders, you should right-click (control-click on Mac) any folder you’ve created to perform more folder actions.
At this time, since you are using Thunderbird and it is no longer fully supported, you might be limited in the settings you can modify. I might recommend you to use Outlook, for example.
Anybody in the community can help @Charles_I shed some light on how to manage his mail folders rules?
Feel free to chime in!
My online Yahoo Rogers account contains the folders on my local (home) PC. I would like to have all of my online mail completely separate from my local setup. I need to download the mail at home but I don't want the Folders dropdown with all of my local folders to appear online. I cannot simply delete these folders online or it will delete my local folders and mail as well. How can I remove this connection?
Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. If you don't want your webmail folders syncing with your email client folders on your PC you should use POP settings instead of IMAP on your email client.
Would you please confirm if your email client is configured with IMAP settings?
Looking forward to your response.
