Search Function not working properly

Since the beginning of this year, whenever I try to search my emails, it doesn't show all the relevant emails sent/received this month.  When it does show them, any that were sent are more often than not shown as draft emails and are mostly incomplete.  The emails are there if I manually scroll down to them so it's not like they don't exist.  For example, I could have received 5 emails off 1 person and only 3 show up.  I might see 3 drafts for the same email but no actual sent email.

 

I have BT Yahool mail and use Chrome.

 

Does anyone have a similar problem and a cure?  Please don't say use something other than a browser...

I have a cure but it doesn't involve a browser.

Re: Search Function not working properly

And your cure would to use something like Mozilla Thunderbird which I have done so when you mentioned about it some time ago. But it still doesn't answer or resolve the problem experienced by the poster since I have exactly the same problem which I also posted some time ago without a satisfactory resolution.

Re: Search Function not working properly

There is a plethora of posts on various forums about the Yahoo search function not working correctly and there are just as many supposed fixes for it.

 

Some people have found that if they have an add blocker on their browser, turning it off allows the search function to work. Others have found that if the have turned off "conversations" turning it back on starts the search function working again.  Some have found using the full version rather than the basic version works and others have found the converse.

 

The general consensus however is that it is a Yahoo problem and there is no Yahoo fix for it.

 

It may be worth having a search of the Internet and try some of the "fixes" until you find one that works for you.

Or Windows Live Mail which has an extremely good search function.
