Once you've got your Yahoo Mail account, join again using your new Yahoo email address.
(send a blank email from it to
Then look for the validation email (from"). If it's not in your in-box, check the Bulk mail folder.

If you still have problems, write me at
I'll try deleting you and adding you again which will send another validation email.
