  • G'day!

    Say, how do you actually 'close' a Yahoo account? So far, the only option I found is just to stop using it, though for this pledge it would be great to actually be able to tell them WHY we're closing our accounts...

    For those looking for a free AND secure alternative to their Yahoo account, check out the link above :-)


  • I checked, and I can't find an option to close a Yahoo account (could be wrong)

    I have had a yahoo account close due to inactivity though.
  • iav deleted my yahoo account due to some reasons before actually going thru the terms & conditions. and then i found i cannot retrieve any messages although they will be accepted in the inbox. i didn't copy the address book even.plz help me how to retrieve messages from the old account
