Hello,
I have a Yahoo account (mail) and I know the password but Yahoo is prompting me for a security question that I DON'T remember, because they have some "unusual acrivity" (it's probabily me because before that I had some "password tries".
What can I do to get my account back?

Thanks in advance,
Adi.

Yahoo's system may ask for security questions but they no longer work. When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?
Well, more then a year ago...
Is there hope to recover it?

Unfortunately not.

Yahoo deletes accounts that have been inactive for 12 months.

You will not be able to recover account. Sorry.
