Yahoo! Mail Classic automatically saves e-mails in progress so that you won't lose them during an unexpected connection interruption or power outage. Rely on the email application's auto-save feature as a means of recovering any Yahoo! e-mail that you spent time composing. As long as you worked on the unsaved e-mail for long enough for Yahoo! to auto-save it, you should be able to recover it from within the "Drafts" folder. Yahoo! Mail's auto-save feature places a copy of your work inside the "Drafts" folder within approximately two minutes of the moment when you began to compose the email.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account where you were working on the email.

  2. 2

    Move your mouse cursor to the "Folders" menu and click "Drafts."

  3. 3

    Look for the email that was auto-saved by Yahoo! among your saved drafts.

  4. 4

    Click the subject line of the email you want to recover.

  5. 5

    Continue working on the email and click "Send" when you are finished.
