Question about Computers & Internet
I'd like for my Yahoo email acct. to be reactivated. I've been locked out of my acct., due to forgetting my password, and after having tried unsuccessfully too many times, the acct. was locked. Whenever I finally found my password, and tried to log in, I was informed of the deactivation of my acct. due to prolonged inactivity. I recently checked email as recently as Feb. 2014. That's not a "prolonged" amt. of time. Please, help. Thanks.

Just open a new account and use your old password. $ months is a long time to not check your email. With all of the email accounts on their servers, space is limited, so they watch for inactivity.

If by 'account', you mean your free Yahoo Mail account, then you cannot
deactivate it. Only Yahoo can do that. Your account will be
automatically deactivated if you do not log in for a period of 120
consecutive days (4 months).
There is another option for you though. You can delete your account, if you know that you're not going to be using it.
To request deletion of your Yahoo mail account, click on this link:
The deletion process can take up to *90* days, even after you have requested that Yahoo remove your account, so do not be concerned if your account still appears to be active for awhile.
