    You can not just close your email, you must close your Yahoo account.

    You can close your Yahoo account at any time. Before doing so, please review the following info to understand what this action means for your account and your data. 


    What happens after my account is closed? 

    You'll lose access to all of your data and content like your emails, email folders, Flickr photos, calendars, Yahoo Fantasy teams and Yahoo Finance portfolios.

    Sign in to the Yahoo account termination page.

    Read the info on terminating your account. 

    Use the on-screen prompts to continue.

    The entire Yahoo account must be closed. There is no way to close just one item such as Answers or Mail.

    To close a Yahoo account immediately go here.

    You can reopen the account by just signing back in as follows...

    In Australia or New Zealand within 90 days.

    In Brazil or Taiwan within 180 days.

    In all other countries within 40 days

    After that time period the account can not be reopened.

    Closing an account closes all Yahoo sites. Even if reopened you may lose all data. Nothing can be restored

    Accounts close after 1 year of inactivity or if you get a violation of the terms of service. They can not be reopened.

    Once closed it will never be available again. This is for your security to keep others from getting email directed to you.

    Closing an account does not remove Yahoo Answers questions or answers.

    For details go here.

    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.
