Anyone who has ever used a Yahoo email address to sign up for services should also make sure they have a firm grip on that account, or remove it from other services. In a blog post on 12 June, Yahoo's Jay Rossiter announced that "We're freeing up IDs, that have been inactive for at least 12 months" so other users can claim them.
If you didn't log on before 15 July, then you have probably lost your moribund Yahoo email address. As I have been saying for more than a decade, it's better to register your own domain name and use that as an email address. If possible, pay for it for a decade in advance. You can, of course, lose a domain name by forgetting to renew it, but at least you only have to remember to do it every two, five or 10 years.
For details, see my earlier answers Master your domain and Solve email problems forever by setting up Gmail with your own domain. For backup purposes, I set up email accounts in pairs, on different services. I use one as the primary email account with my own domain name and the other as a forwarding address.
In other words, everything sent to the main email address is automatically forwarded to the second account. It's quite common for people to be locked out of one email address, through no fault of their own, but I reckon I'd be very unlucky to be locked out of two at the same time. It's also a good idea to use a proper email program such as Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird or possibly eM Client 5 to download and answer emails. Email programs are quicker than web-based email, can consolidate many different webmail accounts in one place, offer many more features for sorting by sender, by subject line etc and searching, let you answer emails while you're offline, and guarantee that you have copies of your emails even if you lose access to your account.
If you use the IMAP setting, or the more powerful Microsoft Exchange protocols, then you can leave copies of emails on the server. This means you can still access your emails from different PCs and other devices while on the move.
Both Gmail and Outlook. Sadly, I find Yahoo mail now almost unusable, and I'd recommend against using it.

It was blue, busy and ugly in an age of streamlined white minimalism. It was like using a knackered Nokia in the days of BlackBerries and iPhones. We Hotmailers would cast envious glances at Gmail dudes, me.

Now Bill Gates and his buddies in Redmond, Washington, have made up our minds for us. Microsoft's faster, simpler, cleaner Outlook. All users will switch to the new-look service over the next few months, although we can keep our hotmail. I probably will, hoping it now becomes charmingly retro rather than deeply un-hip.https://europeschool.com.ua/profiles/pyzikuciq/relax-chicas-de-soria.php
