When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?

Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered an alternate recovery email address to which you have access to receive an account key, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner.

After 9 months of inactivity, your Gmail account was deleted from the server. In the case of Yahoo, the period is 12 months.

Yahoo has done away with security questions, they no longer work.
