I selected "Trouble logging in?" and entered the email address as Yahoo requested. Yahoo then displays the error message.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry, the link I selected is labelled "Trouble signing in?" and the error message is: "Sorry, we don't recognize that email address or phone number".

100% sure. It is an email address I have been using everyday until this morning.

When I send an email to the address (from another account), the email bounces back saying: "Sorry your message to***@******.*** cannot be delivered. This account has been disabled or discontinued."

Sorry, that link does not help. None of the available options apply to the issue I am having. The available options are:
Browser crash, freeze or blank pages
Error message 999
Received temporary error code
Unable to download or upload attachments.I also tried the "Email a Yahoo specialist" option, but received the following: * The form you tried to submit was intended for a different Yahoo ID than what was provided. Please make selection(s) below to get answers to your questions. It goes back to where it started. I still do not have a resolution.
Email technician: Aparna Indresh,
 replied 6 months ago

Sorry for the inconvenience caused Unfortunately I am out of ideas. I may have to open this question to other experts by opting out from this issue, so that any other expert would give you a quick solution for this problem with no extra charge.Other experts will be able to see the older conversation so there is no need to explain the issue again and they will start from where we have left. or else if you want you can contact yahoo at this number +1-***-***-****. Thank you

Please do NOT call the above number. This is a fake number of Yahoo, highly likely a number of scammer

Yahoo does not have phone for technical support for the public.

Please see here for an official article regarding Yahoo numbers.

Regarding your issue, please check below article from Yahoo community - a real case.

https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Password-and-sign-in/Sorry-we-don-t-recognize-this-email/td-p/310481

The key info has been excerpted below.

When going to the contact us page described above and selecting account, entering username and completing the I'm not a robot function, I got to a page where the only option was to read "helpful" articles. At the bottom of the page there is a link to report abuse or spam email (something along those lines). That allowed me to send an email and open a ticket. A day later I got an email asking me to verify some information related to my account. Did that on thursday, and today, monday, got a confirmation that my account was restored.

Just hope this helps.

Please provide the link that will allow me to send an email and open a ticket. (I have not been able to find it).
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 6 months ago

As I don't know your Yahoo account name and required credential, I can't provide you the specific link to remote abuse or spam emails.

However, you may start from here, then choose "you get locked out of your account, use the Sign-in Helper"

Please DIY first, if you can't find the required link to report, I may help you do it directly via a remote session. Please be aware that you need to request remote assistance service at an extra charge.

Good luck.
