Hello, to unattached your 2 linked Yahoo accounts follow these steps:
  • Tap the Profile icon.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Manage mailboxes.
  • Tap the X beside the linked account.
  • Tap Remove (iOS) or OK (Android) to confirm.


Let me know how you get on.

Dear David, 

if we unlink 2 yahoo accounts, do we keep all the emails and datas in each email address?

Do you lose one of our email address or do we still have both separately?

Thanks a lot

You will keep both - the data will remain in their respective email addresses.

Did it work?  When I go to unlink, the message is "Disconnecting a mailbox will permanently remove all messages and data from Yahoo Mail and cannot be undone".

Please verify that you can unlink without removing all messages in the email address you want to unlink....

Did you ever find out the answer?
