Ever heard the phrase " the internet is forever"? well this is where it comes into play, there are many websites and search engines that link to each other, that being the case one site or engine will have obtained certain information from where the information was hosted (yahoo any information you make public), after obtaining this information the site or engine will then create it own instance of the information, this allows easy access to the information vs having to navigate to the location of the information, without rambling there is no way of telling who might have an instance of the information and how they may share it, even tho links to the information no longer exist. If you can still access the yahoo account then contact them to ensure its closed and ask how long it would take to pull information related to your account, furthermore closing an account does not ensure sub-service has been disabled or deleted, you can attempt to google for the information, once you find the several links to the information contact the company or site owners and ask that the information is removed, but just so you know there is no safe or sure way to remove information from the internet, it's forever--Good Luck.

Want to close my yahoo mail and account, delete all mail

When you no longer need your Yahoo account, you may decide to delete the account so you will stop receiving Yahoo email and your personal information will be deleted from the website. Closing your account deletes your membership at all other Yahoo services as well, including Flickr, Monster, Yahoo Groups and Finance Portfolio. If you are sure you want to cancel your email and delete your Yahoo account, you can do so by visiting the account deletion page.

Open your Web browser and navigate to the account-deletion page on the Yahoo website. Log in with your username and password. Verify that the user ID at the top of the page is correct and review the information on the page below, which explains how to end certain paid services, such as subscriptions, the various services that will end when you delete your Yahoo account, and the terms governing your account deletion. Confirm your identity by entering your password once more in the blank field below "Are you sure you want to terminate your Yahoo! Account?" Type the security code displayed in the generated box to verify that you are human and wish to delete your account. Click "Terminate this account."

How to permanently delete my yahooaccount


You can delete your Yahoo account by going to this page:

Log in with the username/password of the account you want to delete.
Read the page that shows up next carefully, because it tells you all the accounts/information that will be deleted.
Once you're sure you want to delete it, click "yes, terminate account" (you might have to give it your password again).

Be careful, since you cannot undo this termination.

Hope this helps!

Permantely deleting syhnch information

Do you mean to remove it from the E or from the server? I am going to assume that you mean from the Tungsten E. You need to hard reset the Tungsten E. Press the power button and at the same time do a pin reset using the recessed button on the reverse side of the E. Dont let go of the power button until you see the round Palm logo. Then let go if it and you will see a screen asking if you want to erase all data.
