Most of mail services will terminate and delete after 3 months (if you don't sign in for 3 months). And it's not possible to give it back!

Help to access my old hot mail account

Accounts become inactive if you don't sign in for more than 270 days VIA WEB BROWSER or within the first 10 days after signing up VIA WEB BROWSER for an account. If you have a welcome email that has happened.

After an account becomes inactive, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted. Incoming messages will be sent back to the sender as undeliverable.
Your account name is still reserved.
However, if the account stays inactive for an additional 90 days, the account name may be permanently deleted.
If you don't use your Windows Live ID for 365 days, your Windows Live ID will be permanently deleted. Once the account is marked as in-active all data is purged so even if you could get the email back the data would be gone....

Why cannot i access my emails

I can only guess Yahoo is undergoing a major change this 2014. I have the same problem too. To this date, 5 of my email addresses were either hacked or deleted by Yahoo.

When I tried Yahoo Chat in their Help, their agent/s told me Yahoo system is now locking/deleting email accounts that have not been active (or logged on to) for the last 6 months.

I do hope though I could get my other accounts (esp. those with ymail domains) to be active in case they have not deleted it.

My emails have disappeared

Please verify if you have renamed/upgraded your account to If yes, please be informed thatyou are only upgrading the user interface of Hotmail to the new user interface; hence all your emails should still stay in your Inbox. There could be many reasons why emails could be lost after renaming:

1. Due to inactivity in account:

If your emails were over 365 days old, you may have lost them due to inactivity in the account even before you renamed the account. If you had Self-recovery of emails turned on in your account before renamed, you can try to recover some of the deleted messages yourself, please refer: Deleted email messages.

2. You got another option to save your Hotmail emails differently when renaming your account to account:

If you chose to rename your account to, a prompt would have asked you - 'Where do you want to save your emails?' You will have the option to create a new folder for your old account or save the emails in the Inbox of your renamed account. If you chose to create a new folder, the default name of the folder will be the name of your old account and the folder will appear in the left pane under 'Folders'. And all your old emails will be stored in this folder.

3. Your account was hacked even before you renamed your account:

A hacker had already deleted emails in their account before you renamed the account.

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:

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

See also this Yahoo! help page:

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.)

See this Yahoo! help page:

I have deleted my yahoo account and i created a new one but i have lost all of my contacts. is there a way i can get my contacts back? i have deleted my contacts along with my old yahoo email

I'm sorry but i do not believe that you can get your contacts back. Unless you were using a third party mail client like Outlook or Thunderbird it is not possible.
