Email acct. deactivated

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.

SOURCE: i just forget my gmail & orkut password bcoz both are same

Gmail sent password-reset instructions to the yahoo.co.in address that is listed as the recovery email for this Google Account. Please wait a few minutes, and then check your yahoo.co.in email account.

Can't find the password-reset message? Check your Spam and Trash folders. If you're still unable to find it, you'll need to answer your security question. To do so, please visit http://mail.google.com and click the I cannot access my account link again in 24 hours. Follow the steps to reset your password.

Note: Please don't attempt to sign in for 24 hours. In order to answer your security question, make sure you don't access this Google Account on any Google sign-in pages, including POP, IMAP, or mobile, for 24 hours.

After 24 hours, you'll be able to reset your password by answering the security question on file for your account.

SOURCE: my yahoo account has been deactivated

Yahoo allows you to reset your username and password using an alternate email address.

Simply go to the yahoo! sign on page and click the link as shown here:

and follow their instructions to get your password emailed to you at an alternate address.

Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: temporarily deactivate NOT delete yahoo account

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:

https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_use…

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.

I think my account locked


One of the drawbacks of free email services is that they're easy to forget you have an account. Yahoo! Mail is just one of those free email services.

Say a few months go by, you've turned your attentions elsewhere, but you remembered you have a Yahoo! account and you want to check your email.

But after you log in, it informs you that your Yahoo! Mail is no longer active. What do you do?

Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account as usual.
A message will appear that says your account has been deactivated due to inactivity.

Reactivate your Yahoo! Mail by clicking on the "Reactivate Your Yahoo! Mail address" link that is located at the bottom of the page.

Sign into your account at least once a month to avoid automatic deactivation by Yahoo! in the future.
