I'm trying to estimate how old my Yahoo! account is, but I can't find this information anywhere on my profile. Any idea on where this could be displayed or a way to guess it? Unfortunately, there's no old mail there to help me estimating it.

(It's the first account I've registered, ever, so I'm curious :D)

Go to:

http://pulse.yahoo.com/

and click "Profile" on the left-hand side navigation. It will bring up your Yahoo! Profile page. In the upper right-hand corner, there is some small text that says Member since: ab/cd/efgh.

Thanks! Although the date seems incorrect (it states 2000 but I recall registering it before that), I guess they migrated the account at some point and the date was lost. Too bad! –  Luk Apr 30 '11 at 16:27
    
AFAIK, my date on my profile matches when I signed up, so...glad to help! :) –  studiohack Apr 30 '11 at 16:30

You could go to your sent folder or inbox and find the oldest email there.

Unfortunately, all my emails were apparently deleted by Yahoo at some point –  Luk Apr 30 '11 at 16:25
    
@Luk They deleted the e-mails most probably due to lack of activity for a long period of time. I encoutered this issue too with my Hotmail account. –  user15457 Dec 8 '11 at 21:27
