Default e-mail

Hi, I am new at this and I need help. I had an e-mail address 8 years ago and went away and my family changed my password. When I send an e-mail to my old e-mail address I get one of those postmaster failure returns. Is there any way possible I can access my old e-mail account so I can get some information I have on there?

If abandoned for several years it is likely gone.

Yahoo and hotmail do account cleanups daily for accounts not in use for over 6 months.
