1. try cleaning your browser cache: in your browser go to tools, internet options>general tab>browsing history>delete>and try delete history, cookies and temp internet files and try again.

2. try also the following information
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/id_password/edit-22.html

3. or try give them a call:
Yahoo support
1(800)-699-2466
or
(408) 349-3300

4. the best bet is to try to remember what other info you provided on those questions, try to use capital letters or vicevesa.. hopefully you'll figure it out.

good luck.. from what I read about people in your situation is not going to be easy, if possible.. hopefully it will, though.

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

Your account has been locked.(81003003)


This error occurred because you or someone else has been attempting to enter your account and obviously, failed. If you try three times to enter your account with wrong information, it will be locked for 24 hours. If you think it's not your fault, contact Yahoo! Mail Technical Help Form .I would also suggest you to change your password.

I hope I helped you! Have a nice day!

Please my email husin_abdelmenem @yahoo.com as open email appears your account hase been locked i tried to solve the problem to push the password do not work but i do so appears this messageSorry, this...


Actually the problem is with Yahoo, but let me explain why this happened and how to get it back. There's no possible alternatives for you to access your account currently. You have to wait at least 24 hours, this happens when someone or the user attempts to login with wrong password or wrong username several times. Will be able to access after 24 hours, even writing to yahoo support will not helpful since their response takes at least 48 hours which is longer than the time you are gonna wait.

If you want this to be faster, your only option is to wait for 24 hours without any attempt otherwise, it'll reset to 24 hours even if you attempt to login after 20 hours and you'll need to wait another 24 hours and so on, this is not controlled by man, but it's controlled by software.

If in case someone is playing with your account, there'd be problem, suppose if someone tries to login while you are waiting for the 24 hours to get passed, same thing will happen again. Yahoo will not be able to recognize since these things are monitored on the server.

You can try writing to the Yahoo about your problem using this contact form.. Sign-in and Registration help form and all fields without "(optional)" are compulsory.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds like you forgot your password. This happens from time to time, and for the safety of your email, it will lock you out if you put in the wrong password for a certain amount of times.

Give it the 24, as I don't believe yahoo will get back to you in less the 48 hours. Once it's lifted, go to the link that says "forgot password" and reset your password.

If you didn't forget your password, it could be that someone else was trying to hack into your email, and that is what triggered it. Either way, you're kind of stuck for the full 24

200 emails per day blocks sending, even though I have only sent 10 emails in the last 24 hours


Evidently Yahoo's "day" is not a rolling 24-hour period - it is a midnight to midnight day - once 12:01 AM hit, the limitation renewed itself.

Yahoo messenger issue


It might be that someone is trying to log in as your user name. When they try about 6-8 different passwords without any luck, Yahoo locks the account automatically for 24 hours to protect your account.
Try uninstalling yahoo messenger v.9 and install a previous version instead, or visit the yahoo help and support center: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/helpcentral/
