Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website ( 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.

Re: I have an old account and i forgott my security question.



Accounts are closed for violation of the Terms of Service or for being inactive for 1 year. Terms of Service violations include being under the minimum age required for your country. Accounts closed for these reasons can not be reopened. Rocketmail and Ymail accounts are no longer issued. Once any account is closed the ID can never be reused.
Inactive accounts may seem to allow you to try to sign in but you can not.
If you try to recreate it It will show that the account still exists even though it is closed. Mail can not be recovered.
Here is a link to the Oath Terms of Service.
Today is Monday, January 7, 2019 and the time is 2:48 pm PST.
In 24 days (January 31. 2019) the Classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. At that time you'll be upgraded to the newest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail depending on your browser's compatibility.
