We have found new information that using a different Yahoo and AOL IMAP server will allow you to process all of the emails in each folder. See articles and details below:

It has come to our knowledge that Yahoo!/AOL has now imposed new limits on how many emails can be collected per folder when collecting via the IMAP protocol. 

If you use native filtering, Yahoo! IMAP servers will only provide 1,000 emails per folder. For example, if you have a folder with 10,000 emails and your native search would normally collect 5,000 of those emails, it will actually only collect 1,000 emails as the limit is reached once the Yahoo! server hits 1,000.

If you use a search query or try to collect all the emails from an account, you will only be provided 10,000 emails per folder. 

We are currently looking into what can be done in Aid4Mail to work around these limits.
