Whether you are still on the fence or have already decided about quitting Yahoo, here are the steps to take to delete your Yahoo account.
How to copy of Yahoo account before deleting permanently?

How to reactivate your Yahoo account
While there is no way to temporarily deactivate your Yahoo account — you can only choose to delete it, all or nothing — it is possible to change your mind and reactivate your account as long as you do it within about 30 days of deleting the account (certain countries have longer hold periods). To do that:
1. Go to the Yahoo webpage.
2. Sign in with your usual username and password.
3. Verify that you want to recover the account and create a new password.
What Happens to Emails Sent to My Address After My Account Is Closed?
As soon as you close your Yahoo account, senders emailing you on your deleted account will receive a bounceback delivery failure message.
So it would be wise to monitor your Yahoo emails for a while before deleting the service. This not only lets you observe how many messages you receive but you can also notify your contacts of your new email address.
