Yahoo doesn't recognize my username

I've had a yahoo mail acct for 8 years, never a problem, until tonight that is, when yahoo mail doesn't respond to my login info, tried a different computer on a diff connection same problem. No error message just "
Invalid ID or password.
Please try again using your full Yahoo! ID." in red. I can't retrieve or reset info since my 'alternate email address' has not even existed for 3 years or more. Did I just get hacked or what???

On the sign in page click on "I cannot access my account"
When that page loads click on "My account may have been compromised "
Take it from there

I think something to do with Yahoo servers. I had this problems many times in Australia and the problems usually went away the next morning . However this time it came back after a short time. I am thinking of switching emails . Maybe Gmail is best.

    On top of chaning the e-mail from classic to the new version this non-recognition of my pasword is not only irritating but infuriating! The problem with changing to Gmail is that I whould lose all of my personal e-mail inforamtion - yes? Who knows tha answers to these question? Yahoo doesn't seen to since it is impossible to contact them or get any advice except from an irritating form answer which doesn't seem to understand my question or complaint. Typical of computer IT heads!

I have also had problems with my Yahoo mail. Today I got onto my daughters computer and pulled up my mail account and was able to access it. Now on my daughters computer there was a message on her yahoo tool bar that she needed to upgrade her tool bar. I did that before I did any thing else. When I could access my yahoo account on her computer I decided to reinstall the toolbar
on my computer. It worked!!! I have been unable to access my mail for 3 days, so may I suggest you try upgrading your toolbar and see what happens.

I want to change my newest yahoo mail to yahoo classic mail


Try changing to a lower screen resolution size first. For some people, this works and forces Yahoo to ask you if you want to revert back to Mail Classic. This fix does not work for everyone though, but do try it.

If this doesn't work, go to the help pages and contact Yahoo through there. I've previously sent people instructions on how to contact Yahoo to restore Mail Classic, but I've found out recently that Yahoo is extremely slow in responding through that avenue, sometimes they don't even respond.

Yahoo requires written authorization to restore your Mail Classic, so when you do contact them, you need to tell them that you do want it restored.

They also want feedback, they want to know why you're wanting to change back so they can better improve the new version.

The new version is full of bugs, I've responded to hundreds of people wanting to change back.

Good luck.

How do i unlock my acct


Hi

If you have Yahoo Mail account and you are unable to access it, then click Forgotten Password, Forgotten Username or Forgotten Username and Password (as appropriate) on the Login Page and then answer a series of Security Questions to prove you are the Authorised Account Holder. After this, Yahoo Support should allow you to Reset your Password and/or Username.


It is useful when setting up this type of E-mail account, to include, in the registration details, an Alternative E-mail Address to which Forgotten Passwords can be sent, after security screening. If you don't have an Alternative E-mail Address, set one up at the same time, or as soon as possible afterwards.

If you are unable to provide all the necessary Security Answers, it is possible that Yahoo Security will block all access to the account.

If it proves impossible to access the original account, open a new one and then e-mail all your essential and important Contacts to inform them of the new address. It may seem a difficult wrench to let go of an old e-mail address and the fear might persist that you will miss some e-mails that go astray but persevere anyway. People do this all the time when changing jobs. Most important or urgent information will find its way to you, by other means, if you fail to respond to an e-mail sent to a redundant address.

Save your E-mail Usernames and Passwords in a cryptic way by sending yourself a Cellphone SMS message containing them hidden in a long list of random letters and numbers.

Save your E-Mail Contacts on your computer, in the Contacts Folder in (My) Computer > Local C: > Documents and Settings > Contacts.

I hope this helps.

Please switch me back to classic mail. got instructions from a garu and got nowhere. I wiil have to switch to aol if you people can't get me back to classic email. Why the heck dsidn't you give...


Yahoo really doesn't want users to switch back, and that's why you've been told to contact them directly.

If I was the one to give you the instructions, then you simply didn't wait, as I said it does take time.

I got the instructions from Yahoo directly after emailing back and forth several times. I was tired of not being able to provide solutions to people here who were complaining about the new version.

It took them almost a week to respond to my first email through the Yahoo site, they are overloaded with these complaints and it does take time to respond to them.

I have already sent you the instructions, if you haven't emailed Yahoo and followed them, I suggest that you do. The sooner you do, the sooner you can have your account restored to Yahoo Mail Classic.
