    This is a popular question to be ask from a newly created YA account.  Since you say nothing seems to work it would be helpful for you to list what you tried and the results you saw.

    As the other responses show you can not delete your account, only Yahoo can do that.  You can either not sign into your account again so that Yahoo will deactivate your account due to inactivity after a year or you can close your account.  Once closed, depending on where you live, it can take up to 6 months before your account is deactivated.  If you sign into your account again to check if it has been deactivated or deleted that will reactivate your account.  Once deactivated Yahoo will delete the account based on their own internal schedule.

    The better way to check if your account has been deleted is to send an email to that account every day and when you get a bounce-back message saying the email could not be delivered because the email address doesn't exist then you will know the account has been deleted.

    Go to the reference and follow the directions. Remember, you must never log in again for it to take effect (at least four months). Logging in indicates you want it back.
