can't find deleted emails older than two weeks

I have to find some emails that I read and deleted and moved to the Trash folder in January.  My trash emails only go back two weeks.  There is no method that I can see to adjust email retention times.  How do I restore them?  Ironically, "Restore lost or deleted emails” on the yahoo website gives no instructions on how to restore lost or deleted emails...good grief

We're happy to address your email inquiry, @dspindler.


In Yahoo! email, only the last 7 days of deleted messages can be restored and the Trash and Spam folder settings for holding messages cannot be adjusted.


We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


If you have any other questions, let us know.
