How to Sort Messages in Yahoo! Mail


By default, Yahoo! Mail displays the messages in a mailbox sorted by date. While this is very useful most of the time, sometimes you may want to quickly find the largest message, for example, or group messages from the same person.

Luckily, you can sort mailboxes in Yahoo! Mail by any of the columns.

  • Click on the column header (read status, From, Subject, Date, Size, attachment status and flag status for Yahoo! Mail; Sender, Subject, Date, or Size in Yahoo! Mail Classic) you want to use for sorting.
    • Click again to reverse the sort order.
