If I am right, what you want to do is change your middle name in your yahoo account...right? If that's the situation, what you have to do is sign in your yahoomail account, click your yahoo ID located in the upper right of your browser right beside the "signout" link (u can find it there if you are using yahoomail classic), don't click signout...

(
Note: If you are using yahoomail beta,click the
"
My Account" link at the top left of your browser)

then click the "edit" link beside the Address/Contact, and edit the middle name you want to change inside the middle name text box and lastly, click the "Finish" button located on the top right or bottom right of your browser, either of the two will do.

Now your maiden name is changed, try sending message and see if it has really changed...thank you! Notify me if it didn't work....If this solution works for you, please give a rate,thank you again!

How do I login my yahoo account if I forgot both password and security questions


You can't. You have 'forgotten' the two things that are paramount for access to your account.

The security questions are asked and you must know the answers, because they only apply to you.

Usual things;
mother's maiden name
road where you grew up
first car
favourite teacher at school
name of first pet

How to change password for yahoo account?


Hi,

Your yahoo password is your key to all of the services offered by yahoo, including the popular mail and messenger features. To protect your personal information and and correspondence, it is important to choose a password that is difficult for someone else to guess. If you feel that you need a stronger password, or if you have reason to believe someone else may have your current password, it is a good idea to change your current yahoo password.

So, Please follow the below step for change your yahoo password.

Step 1: Sign in your yahoo account.

Step 2: Click your name, and click "Account info." (Note that you can also access "Account info" by clicking your name at the top of other yahoo pages while you are signed in.)

Step 3: Click "Change your password"

Step 4: Enter your current password and your new password, and confirm your new password.

Step 5: Click "Save".

A good password should not contain common words or words that are easy to guess. For instance, names of family members or pets are not good choices. Yahoo passwords are case sensitive and yahoo recommends users create passwords that use both lowercase and uppercase letters. Add numbers to your password to make it harder to guess.

Thanking you

what is error message? Wrong password? Wrong user name?

will system let you change or reset password?

mail delivery failure usually means incorrect address you may be sending to, called a mail bounce .

or you are not connected to the internet to even access yahoo mail.

I forgot my password


Access the Yahoo! web-site, and click the "forgot my password" link. Correctly answer all the "security" questions (name of first pet, grandmother's maiden-name), and Yahoo! will let you set a new password.
