Hi jadekim84,

I have been a Yahoo mail client since the early nineties and I too have experienced this issue. What I have found is a lot of the time it is a server side problem(a Yahoo problem). Here are a couple of suggestions just to cover your bases. I know this is going to sound silly, but, make sure your cap-locks is not on. This has driven me crazy at times. Try creating an alternate profile on Yahoo and see if the problem is present there. If you can use your alternate email, it is a good indication that something in your primary login has been changed. I don't want to sound like an alarmist but someone may have gained access to your password and is messing with you. Once your new or alternate Yahoo email is up and running see if you can import your contacts and address book to your new account from your old account. If you can, I would consider abandoning the old account and use the new account. I hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

Cannot get on to my e.mail


Find Hidden Email Accounts on a Computer
Trust in a relationship, whether parent-child, between spouses or at work, is sometimes put to the test.
When one party feels that trust has been abused, he might want to ease his doubts.
New technology makes it possible to effectively hide email accounts, but most people do not use or understand this technology.

Check the history on your Web browser for free email sites like mail.yahoo.com, hotmail.com or gmail.com.
Most of the time nontechnical users do not realize how much information is contained in the browser history.
When searching the history, most free email accounts will show up with the various user names that were used to connect to them.
It is easy to differentiate between regular email accounts and new suspicious ones.
Check her regular email accounts.
Most free email accounts have the option to enter a trusted email address to be used in case the user loses her password, or to warn her if that information changes on the account.
Checking for such email is easy and quick.
Do a search on the account for words like "welcome," "yahoo.com" and "gmail.com" to check for communication from free email providers.

Check for instant messaging logs.
All major free email accounts have free instant messaging such as yahoo messenger, msn and gmail talk.
Each of those messaging services have logging options that save the live chats to the hard drive. If you have an instant messaging software installed, check to see if the logging option is turned on.
Check in the software where the log is saved and go to that location.
Installing messaging software usually creates one folder named after each account to store the logs.
Check for virtual machines on the computer.
More technical people might be tempted to install a virtual machine that allows them to have a dedicated operating system to use as their own.
If you have a virtual machine software such as Vmware, Virtualbox or Virtual PC, try to boot any operating systems present and do the same searches done on the main computer.
Install a key logger on the computer to monitor activity taking place during anonymous browsing. Modern browsers have an anonymous browsing mode that does not record anything done while turned on.
It is easy, however, to install a key logger that will record everything the user types on the keyboard.
It will allow you to discover any email accounts accessed during anonymous sessions.

Get Into My Email if I Don't Remember My Password or ID
It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page. Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

I do have yahoo email and iwant to get the messenger acount now


Good Day Jusbrown!

Just try to log-in in your Yahoo mail account using your email address and password.
Try to log in here, go to https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.intl=us&.src=ym

If you are lucky and Yahoo! have not deleted yet your account most likely you can retrieve that account again.

Just in case log-in is not successful, try the " I can't access my account " link

On the screen, it will ask you a series of question, and you will need to provide the user id (email address) at the end of it you can access the account again by renewing old password.

Good Luck!
Please add comments if you still have questions.

I want my old version of yahoomail back. The "new" version is no good. How can I do this?


Yahoo has specifically disabled the "return to classic mail" link on the New Mail interface. This is specifically to discourage people from going back, as the old mail interface will eventually be removed completely, and all users will be forced onto the new one.

Here is the explanation page from Yahoo Help:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/fromclassic/mltamnoswitch.html


However there is a possible workaround to get back to Yahoo old mail. Open your browser (Firefox 5) and go to Tool-->Options-->Content, and UNcheck the box marked "Enable Javascript." This will disable Javascript from running in that browser. Then try to log into your Yahoo mail account. You should get an error message from Yahoo that your Javascript is disabled- ignore that, and continue to log in to your Mail account. Supposedly, you will be given the option to return to the old mail interface. If that occurs, go ahead and log in. You should then go back and re-enable Javascript, or your mail, and many other websites, will not function correctly.

Cannot view Youtube videos. Must enter my username and password. When I do that, they clain it is not correct. Filled out the "Forgot user name and password". They send email and says I must fill...


Hi jannie_tromp,

Depends on which username and password you are entering ,

for e.g.

If you are using a yahoo user id and password for viewing videos in youtube, it won't work, but there is an option to log in using google account , so if you do have one you can give it a try.

I would recommend you to follow the below steps ...
  1. Create a new youtube account from the youtube website by clicking on register option.
  2. You will get a confirmation email from youtube to the email id that you have specified.
  3. Click on the confirmation link and then you have your account activated.
  4. Use this new account user id and password to log in to youtube next time...:)

Hope this helps ...:)

When I log into yahoo mail it logs in to the user id I have requested for it to keep me logged in for 2 weeks. How do I log into Yahoo under a different user id under these circumstances?


You can't. You cannot be simultaneously logged into 2 yahoo accounts. You need to log out of the existing one to log into the second yahoo ID. However you may be simultaneously logged into 1 yahoo email and ine google or hotmail. The way around this is to have a second user account on the computer and be logged simultneously into both user accounts, and be logged into a diffferent yahoo email in each user account

Can't log onto email even though password and user


Hi,

One solutions is that to change your password. To do this simply click on I forgot my password and follow instruction.

if your old password does not match then there is a possibility that your account has been hacked by someone and password has been changed.

Thanks !
