The best way to get rid of spam emails is to delete them as soon as we receive them, but sometimes we might want to archive them instead.

The “Sent” folder is where we store all of the emails that we have sent. This can be helpful if we want to refer back to an email that we sent a few days ago or if we want to see what kind of email templates we’ve used in the past.

Since we’re going to be archiving all of the emails in this folder, it’s important to make sure that we don’t delete any of the emails accidentally.

Steps:

  2. Select all of the emails that you want to archive. You can do this by selecting them one at a time, or by selecting multiple emails at the same time.

All of the selected emails will be archived in your Yahoo Mail account. You can move back to the “Sent” folder at any time if you change your mind.

Archiving emails of the Unread Folder

Steps:

  1. Login to your yahoo account.
  2. Go to Inbox and select the “Unread” folder.
  3. Select all unread emails by clicking on the checkbox next to the email subject.
  4. Click on “Archive.”

Archiving the Drafts Folder

The emails you draft are the emails you write but don’t send. They may be for a project that you’re working on, or they may be an email you want to send to a friend, but you’re not sure if you should say everything that’s on your mind.

If you have a lot of drafts, it may be a good idea to archive them so that you can free up some space in your inbox. Here’s how:

Steps:

  1. Login to your Yahoo Mail account.
  2. From the left panel, select “Drafts.”
  3. Select all the drafts that you want to archive by checking the checkbox next to the email subject.
  4. Click on “Archive.”
