Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I had a Yahoo account that I gave up on but never bothered to close. I checked it after a few months and a friend who I hadn't heard from in 10 years had written me an email. I recommend you keep it open and check it every month or 2 just in case.
You could leave your account there but with a "Holiday response" set up for a very long time, to let any of your friends know you are no longer using the account.
Listen to the maestro, er... Leo. No need to "cancel" anything. Yahoo allows 10 active eMail accounts at any given time. Just clk on "Members Center" and goto "Manage acct" place your current primary eMail account on your "suspended" list. After 90 days it will disappear. Setup a new eMail address and start fresh. Or just kiss it all goodbye and never go back. We have 2200 unread eMails on our primary acct -- "Friends bearing junk" mail. Thought about ditching the address but just haven't got around to it. For serious, business comm, I use a Yahoo subaccount and keep it cleaned up.
i want my yahoomail id immediately get closed without prolonging it for 90 days as it is being misused badly by someone.please help
The termination page is a "loop" feature. You can NEVER delete an email account from Yahoo. Everytime you put in your password it will state it is invalid. Now you know you put it in correctly or you wouldn't even have gotten to the termination page in the first place.
Since we can't merge yahoo accounts, it'd be nice after 90 days after closing the yahoo ID it would be eligible as an alias under another account.
Possibly, but on the other hand, it would be worse if someone else got that email address before you did.
Would you please close my yahoo account
You have to actually go to www.Yahoo.com to close the account. It can't be done at or by ask-leo.com!
Read the article again and you'll find out how to manage your yahoo email.
