If your old WLID no longer exists, you will not be able to access the account. The only suggestion I can give you is to create a new account.

If Yahoo is saying the account doesn't exist and asking you if you want to register the email, then register it. If it lets you re-create the exact email address which your WLID was originally linked to you can use that new email address just like you would have used the old one.

Thanks GrubbiestEmu that did actually work i didnt even think to try it like that. I registered the account then went back and did the reset password email link thing from xbox and it worked. Awesome its been 4 years since i had access to this account so its great to get it back.
