We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the Yahoo Communities effective Jan 24, 2019.

Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website (https://help.yahoo.com). In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

If you ever need help with your Yahoo accounts, try Yahoo Account Pro for 24/7 live phone support.

Deleted yahoo account, which was a recovery email for another account, now what??

Lack of foresight, I know, but I've lost the password to the other account and can't get any recovery codes. I can't re-register the old email address either. Is there any hope?

I'm sorry but Yahoo no longer recycles email address so you won't be able to create a new account using a previously used email address.

 

If you live in the US you can try the new Yahoo Account Pro service.

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.
