Instead, GetHuman-tjackfly will need to dig through the advice provided by Yahoo, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-tjackfly can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-tjackfly's own words
Years ago, I created an email address, *****@***.com**Anywhere in between * and * years ago, I deleted it.**Recently, I went to open a yahoo mail account with the same name, *****@***.com**It gave me this message: "A Yahoo account already exists with this email address" and asks me to sign in.**When I send an email to this address, I do not get a return message * failure to send * mailer daemon message.**When I go to sign in, using the password I remember, it tells me I have the wrong password.**Also, it gives me this message: "For security purposes, please verify the missing digits" as part of the phone obfuscation challenge.**My concerns are:* - that this email, being an email that was created from a very specific, obscure name that is not related to any well known * commonly used abbreviation or title, is being used to send emails in my name.* - that this account, despite having been deleted, still has the emails and information that it had while it was active, in which case I would like to gain access to this account so that I can view said emails.**This email address is very special to me, and to gain access to it or any information regarding it would be very helpful.**Thanks,*Jack F.
