    Have you checked your spam mail , or try to resend the code again,? It has to be another back up email to send the code or your phone message.

    according to yahoo terms of use. If you do not access your account in over a year, the account is gone. you will not be able to recover it.

    Ah, good point. Here's the Yahoo help page that says it: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2018.html

    It may say it, but I just accessed my old Yahoo email account - that I hadn't been on in many years, and the login (and account) was still good.

    Yahoo is about as good as it's ever been - number 11 out of 10.

    They're as good at following their own policies as they are with maintaining the security of our accounts.

    but have you been on other oath (yahoo) properties with that account? or the country you are from. also did you still have all of your emails?

    over the years I found that It really depends on what services you logged into during the time off of their email. but then as previously mentioned, as with any other service, they can be inconsistent. I have an old email account myself that I can log in but all of the emails are gone.
