When are the Trash and Spam folders emptied?
Yahoo Mail regularly deletes the contents of the Trash folder. This is not a setting you can change. The Spam folder, however, empties at a frequency you set. Here's how.
- Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
- Mouse over the Settings menu icon | select Settings.
- Click Security on the left.
- For "Empty Spam folder," select:
- Once a week
- Every two weeks
- Once a month (default)
- Click Save.
