Hi,

I opened a yahoo account back in 2007 and down the road forgot password. However, I remember the answer to one of the security questions. Anyway I could get access to my inbox?

HELP

Thank you
First, tell us, when you created your Yahoo account, did you register an alternate recovery email address or phone number to which you have access to receive an account key?

When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?

Last time I had access was 2013. I created the account in 2007, I can remember one of my security questions though. I only had the security questions as the recovery then, no phone number, alternate email etc.

Thank you
You will never be able to recover the account. After 12 months of inactivity Yahoo accounts are deleted from the server. You have not accessed your account for 5 years.

Sorry but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
