  1. Hi
    I had an old Yahoo email
    I receive this warning when I try to recover an account
    Sorry, we don't recognize that email address or phone number
    ******
    I receive this warning when I want to create a new account with the same old address
    A Yahoo account already exists with this email address

    How can I solve this problem?

    Hi dear friend
    My email has been blocked in the past because of US sanctions
    Sanctions have now been lifted, but Yahoo is not recovering that old email
    Yahoo has banned this email address after several years of not allowing account recovery
    It does not allow creating a new email with the same name as before and warns this email is available

    If you have a solution, seek help with recovery

    Hello
    Thank you
    You can contact Yahoo Support to find out why this is the problem.
    I can't speak English well

    I think this is a problem for a lot of old Yahoo users who want to know the solution

    If you are suggesting I contact yahoo about "your" email situation, it will not work. All I can & will suggest is you start a NEW yahoo email. I have yahoo & no problem.

    Whether or not you are mis understanding me or not, I cannot nor will not do such. If somebody else in this forum is willing, fine, I won't. It also could be against forum rules. Sorry, find somebody else, again, good luck. By the way, you sure do type good english.
