Unable to Access More Than Three Months Of Emails - IMAP Email Client Application

Any solutions with regards to being unable to access more than three months of emails (10,000) per folder via IMAP client applications? Luckily all emails are still available on the website using a internet browser but is unhelpful when using iPhone email client to access bellsouth.net, icloud.com, gmail.com emails. Thanks for your help in advance!

This is yet another stupid thing Yahoo has done.

Here's a long thread over on the Microsoft Community Forums discussing this.  Somewhere in the first half of that thread someone discovered appending "export." to the front of the mail server name got past the limit.

But it now looks like Yahoo made some change to block that workaround.  🤬
