Yahoo was contacted about this and they say it is a glitch, they have their engineer working on the problem. This has been happening to many of us while using the Classic Mail, since Yahoo has been upgrading the Classic and other sites, in the meantime, open the inbox, click View All Messages, then unread messages, if you have any late arrivals or in folders they will show. Otherwise it will clear on it's own. It did for us, it took a few days.

I can't open my e-mail .. why I don't ..I tried and tried without any result
Maybe theres spam or maybe theres email WAY WAY back in the folder. Hope I helped.
I don't think that you really can. Usually it shows that you still have mail in your inbox because you opened another window, and when you switch back to the first page, it will still show that you have mail.
