I doubt that Yahoo lost the information. It probably disappeared somewhere
between your computer and their server.
I take it you were using the browser-based mail interface to send your

to change ISPs. That's unacceptable. If they want to flag it as "possible
spam" when they deliver it to you, then that would be different.
