Reactivate Account: Yahoo Account is No Longer Active

Posted November 4, 2005 by MickeyMouse in Internet

If you do not log in to your Yahoo portal or email account after a while, Yahoo will deactivate it. The following tutorial explains how you can prevent your account from being closed forever.

You have not logged in to your Yahoo account in quite some time. Now, when you try to log in, you find that your account has been closed. How can you recover your account?

Yahoo does not give phone support for its free accounts; however, there is an email that can help you. Contact Yahoo using the following email address:
