Hello, I changed phones this past summer and then was unable to access my email account. I was asked 2 questions to validate. #1. an alternate phone # that I no longer had access to (turned off). #2. alternate email with att that hasn't been used in like 15 years. I believe my password is correct but perhaps my account was hacked. I since opened another yahoo email account but I would really like to get back in to old account. I had it for many many years and I have alot of files. Thanks for any advice you may have. Cindy

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. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.
