Yahoo!Xtra allows you, as a primary member, to add up to ten sub accounts (also known as member accounts) to your primary account. Each sub account is a fully functional, stand-alone Yahoo! Xtra ID, with its own Yahoo! XtraMail mailbox.
There are several reasons for creating sub accounts:
Alternatively you can login to the Member Center as the primary account holder to create a new sub account.
Each sub account that you create has its own mailbox (including permanent folders), Yahoo! Contacts, and spam protection settings. The only way to access a sub account’s mail is to sign in using the account’s Yahoo! ID and password.
Tip: It is not possible to access mail in a Yahoo!Xtra sub account by popping the mail into another Yahoo!Xtra account.
If you no longer want to include a Yahoo!Xtra ID as a sub account in your household, you can delete the sub account.
|WARNING: Deleting a sub account also deletes everything associated with the username. You cannot reactivate the username or reuse it in the future. If you want to retain your data, or use your email again at a future date, consider Suspending your sub account instead.|
The sub account deletion page appears.
Tip: You may also see additional screens asking you to verify your Yahoo! ID and password.
Alternatively you can login to the Member Center as the primary account holder to delete a sub account.
