HOW CAN I GET BACK TO MY TRUSTED YAHOO MAIL ACCOUNT MAVIN193@YAHOO.CA ??? HELP PHILLIP 416 858 3761 TORONTO ITS DISAPPERED??


HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN INACTIVE ?

Your Yahoo ID is linked to a broad array of Yahoo services, from Yahoo Messenger to online games. A Yahoo ID must be deleted from a laptop or desktop, not a mobile device. Only get rid of your Yahoo ID if you're certain you'll never need it again, because there is no option to change your mind and get your ID back once it's gone.

Deleting a Yahoo ID
When you delete a Yahoo ID, you lose access to all programs associated with it, including Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Groups and Yahoo Finance Portfolio. Deleting your Yahoo ID will not remove your listing from the Yahoo People Search, however, so your profile will continue to appear in search results unless you delete your listing before deleting your ID. Lost Information b> When a Yahoo ID is removed from the system, Yahoo deletes all of the data associated with the account, including your email messages. You cannot recover this information once it is removed; creating a backup copy of your data on a computer or external storage device is the only way to preserve it for future reference. b> Reactivating Dormant Email As long has your Yahoo email has only gone dormant -- and not been deleted as the result of an ID termination -- you can reactivate the account. Yahoo automatically makes an email account dormant if the user hasn't signed in more than four consecutive months. To reactivate such an email account, you must sign in via computer using your Yahoo ID and password, and choose "Reactivate Without Account Protection." Yahoo permanently deletes old emails when an account is deactivated, but you can resume sending and receiving email once you reactivate the account. b> Considerations b> Some premium services are not cancelled along with a Yahoo ID deletion. If you signed up for a paid service, such as Yahoo Mail Plus, the company recommends manually canceling the service -- independent of your Yahoo ID deletion -- to avoid future bills. Canceling a Yahoo ID doesn't disqualify you from signing up again in the future with a new ID, but you cannot reactivate the same ID. Hope this helps.

Delete yahoo account


If you wish to delete your entire Yahoo! account (including Mail, Messenger, profile, other Yahoo! services), go to the "Delete user" page, and follow the instructions:
https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_user

Please note that's a permanent and complete deletion, which removes all aspects of a Yahoo user account.

See also this Yahoo! help page:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/account/account-11.html

-------------------------------
If you simply wish to close the Yahoo! Mail account (but without deleting other Yahoo! services), you should simply stop using the account. Yahoo! deactivates email accounts which are not used for 120 days. (You may later reactivate the Yahoo! Mail account if you wish, although you cannot restore old email messages.)

I cannot delete several of my messenger contacts even though i deleted from my mail address book. when I try to delete them, I get the following error message: The last Address Book operation did not...


Seems Error Code 40402 pops up when trying to remove them while in your Yahoo Instant Messenger list first.

Glitches and Updates!!! Here's a work around though.
You will need to go to your Yahoo Email Account and delete the contact's name there first.
1. Click Contacts from your Email page to open your list of Contacts.
2. Go to the one you wish to remove and check the box next to it.
3. Go to the top of the list and click the Delete button.

Go to Yahoo Instant Messenger, right click the name and select Delete from the drop down menu.

I want to close my yahoo mail box indefinitely


Terminating your account means you'll lose access to the Yahoo!7 Yahoo! ID, Yahoo!7 Messenger, and profile names associated with it. If that is your intention, please continue reading. However, if you are only looking to uninstall Yahoo!7 Messenger, click here for those instructions. If you wish to cancel your Yahoo!7 Yahoo! account, please continue reading.
When deleting a Yahoo!7 Yahoo! account, we'll also delete the account data and settings across the Yahoo! network. This includes any contents in:
  • Yahoo!7 Mail
  • Yahoo!7 Address Book
  • Yahoo! HotJobs
  • GeoCities
  • Yahoo!7 Briefcase
  • Yahoo!7 My Yahoo!7
  • Yahoo!7 Yahoo! Groups
  • Finance Portfolio
  • Any other area of Yahoo! that can only be accessed with your Yahoo!7 Yahoo! ID and password
Be sure you want to delete your entire account, as you won't be able to reactivate it after the account has been deleted. You're always welcome to sign up again for a new account.
Terminating your Yahoo!7 Yahoo! account won't alter or delete your Yahoo! People Search listing, which you need to edit or delete yourself.
If you subscribe to any premium services, we recommend that you cancel them first—before you delete your account. There is no guarantee that deleting your Yahoo! account will immediately cancel the billing for any premium services you're subscribed to. To cancel your current subscriptions, visitYahoo! Billing Information for your account, choose the "My Services" tab and click the "Cancel" link for each subscription.
Now: To remove your entire account, please visit our Account Deletion page. You'll be asked to sign in to verify your password for the account you wish to delete. Please be sure to read the next page carefully, as important information about your account is included. You can then confirm the deletion of your account.
When the deletion process is initiated, your Yahoo! account can never be recovered.

Your rating is very important to me.
