Yahoo email already in use on another site

If you recently registered for a new Yahoo account , it's possible that your new Yahoo email address had a previous owner who stopped using the account at least one year ago. If the previous owner provided this email address sometime in the past to set up services with a business such as Paypal or a utility company, the obsolete address may still be in the business's system. This could block you from setting up your own services with these businesses using your new address.
