Yahoo! Mail is brought to you by US company, Yahoo!, presently a subsidiary of Verizon. The platform offers four different plans: three for personal use (Basic, Plus, and Ad-Free) and one more for business organizations.

In 2017, Yahoo worked on its web UI, giving it a more gentle appearance while launching the option to customize it with various color themes and layouts. Sadly though, some other vital features were taken off, including column widths and 1-click delete-move-to-next.

Yahoo Mail is a top email service across the globe and that will not change anytime soon. Like other email services, Yahoo also allows you to deactivate your account if you are done with it. However, if you delete your account and later want it back, what do you do?

Luckily for you, Yahoo Mail allows users to recover any deactivated account anytime they want. But it has to be done within thirty days of deactivating it, else, the account will be gone forever. If the 30 days has not elapsed yet, see How To Recover Your Yahoo Email Account After Deactivating It:
