Wrong birthday listed on Yahoo account
For security reasons, it isn't possible to update or change the date of birth listed on your Yahoo account, even if you entered it incorrectly when you first registered your account. You'll need to open a new account if you'd like your account to reflect your accurate info.

Actually even if Yahoo still offered direct customer support by phone or email address they would not be able to update the birthdate set in your account. Once this information is set it can't be changed.

g, there is nothing you can do. the spammers are manually entering your name in the Reply field.... to fool the spam filters. that is why you won't see them in your Sent folder. the spammers will move on to someone else soon.
This sounds like a phishing email designed to collect your account information. If Yahoo sends you an email it will address you by your real first name, not your email address or your account ID and never as Dear User, Dear Yahoo Account Holder, or Dear Yahoo Mail User. Yahoo sends emails from a cc.yahoo-inc.com address only. Yahoo will never send you an email asking that you change, update, or verify your account information by clicking on a link in the email.

I created a Yahoo email account for use by our homeowners association. However, when others try to log in, they get a message about suspicious activity and are prompted for a code. The code goes to my personal home phone (because I'm the one that set up the account) so the others cannot get the code and can't log in. Any way around this? Is it possible to have a single Yahoo email account with multiple users logging in from their own computers or phones?
I just got a response from Yahoo telling me this is not allowed. They consider it commercial use which is prohibited. Here is their response.
Please note that standard Yahoo accounts are for personal and individual use only.
Section 12 of the Yahoo Terms states:
NO COMMERCIAL REUSE OF Yahoo SERVICES
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell, or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion or use of, any access to the Yahoo Services (including Content, advertisements, Software, and your Yahoo ID).
We do offer Yahoo Small Business accounts from Yahoo designed for your business/organization. To learn more, please visit the Yahoo Small Business website.
I am sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for contacting Yahoo and have a great day!

So I finally got this issue resolved!
First I'll start by sayibng that yahoo customer support has not provided any help whatsever with unlinking the accounts.
Second I will tell you that calling Verizon is waste of your time as well. The customer phone support has no idea how to handle this request.
I finally was successful by contacting Verizon via Twitter with my problem. After about 2 weeks of back and forth they finally found a way to get the account unlinked. As soon as they did that, I was able to successfully reset my password.
I will mark my post a resolved by myself.

If those methods are unavailable the system will check if any other options exist, if none are found then it is unlikely you can recover this account.
