    Your email Addy is completely separate from Q&A. Anyone with an once of common sense would not use it to post here, they would open a separate one. ;-) If you do this and, the account is suspended you wont lose that email just the privilege of posting on Q&A.;-) Is it a privilege? Well it doesn't cost you anything, does it?

    I've had tons of suspended accounts and never lost my email addresses.

    Yes and no, so here's the breakdown on what you asked about:

    1. Yes. Any TOS violation on Answers will result in the sudden deactivation of their Yahoo ID. They will lose access to everything in their account and whatever was stored there.

    2. No. Any CG violation here can result in the suspension of their Answers account. They still can access the other services as normal.

    Depends on the severity of the actions that got them removed. See https://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/utos/terms/

    When this site first started up, people were losing access to email when they got suspended, but Yahoo stopped doing that after a few years.

    Yes. You will lose it all, so safeguard the stuff that really means something to you.

      Actually that it is a fear of mine because I receive some important emails from websites that won't allow me to change to anther email, like Disney Rewards and Movies Anywhere.
      I think to be on the safe side I better just get off here

    It depends on why they are kicked off. In general, if for CG violations, you just lose YA. If for clear TOS violations, you can lose all accounts.
