The most common reason for this is a typo in your email address. We don't know what it's supposed to be, so we can't address that. Confirmed that it was sent to the current listed address.

If you are certain you typed your address in correctly, I suggest checking that whatever app you use to check your emails has your credentials up-to-date. On more than one occasion (usually but not always password changes) I have found that my inbox stops accumulating mail because it is no longer connected to my email account.

What email provider are you using? I note the following as said by Sierra Lyricalia (although I haven't personally used a Yahoo email for WA applications),
Sierra Lyricalia wrote:And... not that anyone uses yahoo mail anymore, but for completeness' sake it should be mentioned that yahoo hates WA emails. It doesn't even sequester them in the spam folder with the rest of the riff-raff, it just plain pretends they don't exist. So use a better email service. :)

Nope I don't use apps for my yahoo email, and there is still nothing in my spam folder and my email address is correct

Yahoo is accepting email delivery from us (via Sparkpost) and returning valid confirmation codes, i.e. not blocking or rejecting. We most recently delivered a WA invitation email to your account on 2023-12-06T07:21:38.000Z (subject: "Ufrein: World Assembly invitation").

e: I just verified this myself, I applied to join the WA with a @yahoo.com account and received the WA invitation email.
