History

I started a yahoo account when I was 17 years old. In this past year, if I didn't check it daily, I'd have well over 100 spam emails. Imagine what it looked like when I came home from my honeymoon. Not pretty.

I'm a very organized person and I had many folders which kept things from my days in college where a student got my email address from a teacher and started harassing me, to the very first letters Aaron and I sent back and forth to one another from match.com.

So, when I created a new yahoo account with my married name, I deleted my old yahoo account.

Yes, in my haste, I forgot to save the letters.

::commence shock and tears::

Those letters were precious to me and I can't believe I didn't think about them before hitting that delete button. Aaron saw how upset I was, and printed out the few he had, and actually, I had printed them once myself. However, somewhere along the way I'm sure I threw them out, knowing that when I wanted to print them and put them in a place for safe keeping, I always had access to them.

It's times in life like these where I wish I could hit the "Edit", "Undo" button.

    I would love an Edit or Undo button for life. Heck, I'd even settle for an Esc or Ctrl.

    Did you actually delete the account or just your name and log in info. Yahoo should still have it in their archives. Maybe you can re-install your old self and get the emails?

    I cannot seem to actually get rid of any email account I have - somewhere they're still "alive".

    Good luck!

    Aww Im really sorry. Ive had things either deleted or when my computer crash that it made me really sad. I used to have me and Ryans first convo saved on the comp too, I THINK it may still be on a disk somewhere, at least Im hoping!

    Awww...I'm sorry you lost your letters, but you DO have the wonderfully sweet Aaron! Also, I would love an "Undo" on life events. Lord, I'd be "Undo-ing" like a madwoman!!!

    Aww, I'm so sorry! I'd be upset about that too :( I used to save ALL the cute/funny voice mail messages I received until I had so many it would take like an hour to go through and resave them (when my VM would tell me they were too old) and I finally had to suck it up and delete them all.
