Back in 2003 I have a yahoo email account. I used it until 2009 when i became unable to log into it. I NEED to get back into this account. When i try to log in on the yahoo page my password does not work. When I try to do a forgot my password or my account has been compromised, it kicks me over to the ATT page.
Heres where it gets complicated. In 2009 my mom opened an ATT account in my name with out me knowing. I had the account closed as she basically stole my identity.
So when I try to do a password reset via the att page, it tells me my account is inactive and that I cannot do that.
A few months ago I sopke with ATT customer service and they told me that my yahoo and att accounts had been merged but that they didn't think I would be able to get into my yahoo account.
I don't buy it, does anyone out there have any ideas how I might get into my yahoo mail????

According to your post you haven't logged into your email since 2009 which is a very long time. In the following link from Yahoo it explains a few ways in which your account would have been deactivated.

thank you for all posting answers. unfortunately none of the answers worked for me. i called at&t, yahoo and spent hours on this. I guess i'm leaving at&t. i cannot seem to get any resolution. very poor customer service!
