I have forgotten my two yahoo mail security questions, what can i do to retrieve it and as well open my email?


There are certain reasons & certain remedies:
Your account has been locked for security reasons, this means that there have been too many attempts to sign in
to ur account with the incorrect password. As a security measure, ur account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to access it.
If u haven't been trying to sign in to ur account with the wrong password, this is not necessarily cause for concern. It could simply be the result of another user mistakenly thinking that ur ID is theirs. (To learn more about account security, visit the Yahoo! Security Center.) http://security.yahoo.com/
This usually happens when an incorrect password is repeatedly
used, and is for security reasons.
Lock out is in force for 24 hours - you will have to wait it out.
Visit this link, & gives you the complete details of how to go about it:

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.

My email account has been locked in yahoo. How can I unlock this?


What you need to do is try signing in from a different "server". Basically if you try to sign in incorrectly too many times on one of yahoo's sites they will lock your account, but only on that server.
Here is a list of yahoo email servers. Try a different server.

  • http://edit.india.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=in
  • http://edit.europe.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=uk
  • http://login.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=cf
  • http://my.yahoo.co.jp/
  • http://login.yahoo.com/config/login

How do unlock my messenger?


So many log in tries of an Yahoo ID with wrong password causes lock.. This is a security lock for your Yahoo! ID. If you know the correct password you can unlock it by opening http://www.yahoo.com/r/m6 or http://mail.yahoo.com, for the first time type your ID correctly and type any password(if password is wrong no problem), click Sign In . in reply the same page will appear again... this time type your ID and password correctly, type the captcha verification code correctly as shown in image box and click Sign In. if your password is right your ID will be unlocked.

Thanks for being with us.

All the best.

Why did Yahoo deactivate my account??


You can use the forgot password link to have a new password mailed to you, or you ca use the reset password function after answering the security question you made when you got the account. Most places will lock you out after too many incorrect tries.

Trying many times!


Your account is locked when someone enters an incorrect login multiple times (usually around 30). Yahoo! locks the account for "security reasons" and you are unable to access your chat names. Cool thing is, these are a piece of cake to unlock. All you need is a list of Yahoo! servers to log in with. Every time you login, you are using what's called a server to access Yahoo! You login with a cookie, which is sort of like an information packet or ID proving that you are who you claim to be, and the account is yours.

When people attempt to log your name in multiple times with a locking tool, all they are doing is logging in over and over with an incorrect password until your cookie expires, which means you will no longer be allowed to login. So, when you find yourself locked, what you need to do is refresh your cookie. But how can you do that when the Yahoo! server you were using has blocked you?

Simple, find another server. Yahoo! has servers all over the place. There are more than I'd care to count. I'll include a pretty decent sized list with this tutorial. All you have to do is paste one of these servers in your browser and log in on the page you see. Unless you have been locked on that server as well, you will receive a fresh cookie and will be able to log in to Yahoo! Messenger again.

Tons of people try to go through their e-mail and login there to unlock an account, but a smart locker will shut down your mail server first, then cut off your chat server. Most people don't know what to do if the e-mail is blocked, so they give up trying. That's why I don't even bother with the e-mail method. I simply pick another server, log in, and I'm good to go. There are so many servers out there that it is impossible to lock them all. Even if they could, the lock is only for about 12 hours, and then you're back in business.

Some Yahoo Servers :
