Hello, have a look in this article produced by CCM giving you all of the possible solutions on how to recover a yahoo account. Unfortunately, the article is exhaustive, containing all the known solutions.

You can also try sending a mail to the address that you are trying to recover from another address. If your mail can't be delivered and you receive a 'mail delivery error', it is likely that your account has been disabled, or even permanently deleted.

A final option would be to contact yahoo support directly.

The only thing I can think of is that Yahoo believed that you have not followed the terms of use, see here :

When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?

Try to send an email to the address that you are trying to recover, wait 20 minutes and tell me if it bounced back.
No, I received a mail delivery error

Mail delivery error = it bounced back.

That means that the account that you are trying to recover no longer exists, it has been deleted from the server.
But why, I was using it then it is just deleted. How does that happen

Says the account has been disabled or deleted. How did that happen. So do I have to start over . No I don't use it for advertising.
