I decided to clean out some old folders in my Yahoo account.
Instead of deleting the content of each folder, I transferred it to the inbox.
Then I deleted the folders.
Everything is fine when using my computer (iMac) to access the mail account.

When accessing the mail account from the iPhone, things are different.
I see the most recent emails but then it shows me emails from 2010, the ones I recently transferred to the inbox.

I've deleted the account on the iPhone and then re-established it, thinking that the new imports would reflect what I see on the computer but the problem persists.
It appears as if the old emails acquired a new time stamp and are sorting to near the top of the display.

I welcome any suggestion as to how to remedy this problem.

Do you see the same if you log into the web interface?

How did you move them and on which device?

It sounds as though they are being treated as new

I appreciate your advice mrplow and chas_m.
I moved the folder content to the inbox using my computer.
I will try the new app when it is available.

Time will heal. As new emails are replacing the top position, the unwanted old ones are slowly pushed into oblivion. The problem is slowly disappearing.
