    If you would like to recover a Yahoo Mail account that was deleted by your request, or inactivity, please follow these steps:
    • Login to Yahoo Mail using your current password.
    • Confirm your Yahoo ID and complete the CAPTCHA verification.
    • Select the option to Re-activate
    If there is a chance your account was hacked, please see this page - Yahoo - How to recover a lost password / How to regain control of a hacked account

    It may not be possible to recover a Yahoo account that has been deleted for more than 90 days.

    Accounts hat have been inactive for more than 365 days might not be recoverable.

    It can take up to 24 hours for an account to be re-activated after Yahoo receives the request.
