ONE OF MY YAHOO EMAIL ACCOUNTS I JUST WENT INTO,3 EMAILS THAT I HAD ARE GONE *PUFF*

i am 100% positive i did not delete them. they were left in the inbox after i read them. 2 weeks later, they were still in the inbox.

today,they are gone. they were semi-sentive emails but not really important.

yes,i checked the trash anyways despite me being 100% sure i did not delete them.


something happen to them. are emails design now so they self destruct now after being read by the reciepant?

otherwise,foul play is the other possibility. no one else ever could have got hold of my password. by looking over my shoulder anyways.


any comments,suggestions?

Since Yahoo emails are stored on their server, either the problem is on their end OR someone has access to your user name and password. This could happen if you were infected with a trojan or password stealing virus.

First, update your anti-virus program. Then perform a full system scan. Then change ALL of your passwords.
