How to Sort Yahoo Email by Date

by Joshua Phillips

Since Yahoo Mail organizes your email by the most recent date by default, searching for one of your earliest messages can be quite time-consuming. By using the "Sort By Date" feature, you can display your email messages according to the date received. Selecting the option once sorts them from oldest to newest, while selecting it again reverts your messages back to the previous setting of newest to oldest.

Step 1

Click "Sort By Date" at the top of the message list in your Yahoo Mail account.

Step 2

Click "Date" to display your messages from oldest to newest.

Click "Date" again to return your messages back to the default setting of sorting newest to oldest.


  • You can also sort by sender, subject, alphabetically and by unread messages.
