In Yahoo Mail, how do i get bulk email I deleted?

Mail from unknown addresses automatically goes to my bulk mail, and I am expecting an important email from someone not in my address book. I accidentally deleted all of my bulk mail without scanning it first, and I need to check it and see if that email was in there. It didn't go to my trash, and I have searched my mail for it with the search button, and it's not coming up. Does that mean that I can't get it because it was bulk, or have I just not recieved it yet?

Update:

I did not hit "Empty" next to the Bulk folder. I opened the bulk folder, selected all of the email and hit delete. it should still be in the trash, right?

    Wow! Once bulk is deleted, it is gone, which is why it gives you that warning.

    I often receive regular e-mail in the bulk; one must be careful.

    If possible, contact that person and ask if they already sent it, if so, please send it again?

    When you delete your bulk mail with the empty button, it does not go into your trash...It is deleted...permanently. You can go into options, and add the e-mail address you are expecting your e-mail from to ensure that in the future you will receive it in your inbox, and not your bulk mail.

    If you emptied the bulk mail folder, it deletes just like the trash does and you cannot get it back.

    If you deleted the bulk mail folder, anything in it is now gone, it doesn't go to the recycle bin. Gone. Tell the person you were expect an important email from to resend, and add them to your address book.

    I've had that as well : I think it's just some sort of computer trickery. What I find as well is that I receive e-mails from senders where the e-mail address is obviously an attempt at guessing what mine is (so variations in the name, surname etc). Stupid spammers....

    Look in your trash, it's in the same list of Inbox, Sent, Bulk, ect. if its not in there its gone forever, and it is possible for it to go into your inbox, just because they are not in your address book, doesn't mean that it can't go to your inbox, it usually doesn't go to your inbox because it is suspicious.

    Try using your Yahoo tool bar. Ask the your question the search assistant. You would note in the drop menu it gives you at least 10 options to select from. Gues what your question is the list.

    Next to the word BULK...there is the word [Empty] , just click it and it deletes all of it in one fell swoop.
