How To Change Number Of Messages Displayed In Yahoo Mail

Monday, June 24th, 2013 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

Dan Dzurek from Hollywood Fla writes:

Thanks for your tips in the past! I need help to reset the number of messages displayed in Yahoo mail. I can’t seem to contact them, can you help? Thanks, again!

 Note: A few days after I walked through Yahoo, grabbed the screen shots and wrote this tip, the look of my Yahoo Mail completely changed. Right now there appears to be no option for adjusting the number of messages on in this updated version. But I’ll keep looking for a solution and let you know if I find one..

Dan, the first thing you’ll need to do is log onto your Yahoo! mail account and click the little gear in the upper right of the page. Then select Mail Options from the drop-down menu.

Or, just select the Options tab at the top of your Inbox.


At the top of the list in Options, you’ll find Behavior. There you can select the number of messages displayed per page from a drop-down menu.

Remember to select Save, in order to save your changes. I have a bad habit of skipping that step and wondering why my changes don’t stick.

Let us know if this solution works for you.

    This tip is not accurate for Yahoo Mail Plus. In options, the Behavior section only has 1 option, Enable Preview Pane. Nowhere could I find the number of messages to display.

    Yahoo is losing users in droves. They keep fixing things that aren’t broken and then breaking them. I know users that have been there 15 years who are leaving. I will likely be one of them and I am a plus subscriber. They do not listen to feedback, they make it impossible to talk to a customer service specialist though that is supposed to be part of the Plus subscription. The service has deteriorated enormously over the last two years. It does NOT remember what you “save” in options. And they keep removing options. Horrible company.

    The option to choose more than the standard number per page in the inbox was REMOVED by Marissa Mayer in late 2-14 or early 2015. Many other nice features went away then too.

    Bah on Yahoo . . .

    You are bull-*&%!ting people. Why I am unable to scroll down ALL my mails, even those I DID NOT delete and OLD ones of long time ago I kept?!?
