I have a new password and want to change my old one
The problem is:
I cannot remember my old one so if I ever want to check my emails from another computer I will not be able to. Is there anyway I can just enter my new password to my email sign up?

Re: I have a new password and want to change my old one
Send an e-mail to technical support for your e-mail provider. Search for address onlnie. I don't know what e-mail you are using. Does your outlook log in to your e-mail automatically? That's what I'm assuming. Please post what e-mail service you use again if the eml doesn't work.
hope this helps

Hi Abbie. You need to change your password with your email provider. If you have a Hotmail, Live, Outlook password, you need to change it through Microsoft - just try to log in and click 'forgotten password' and follow the instructions. The same if its a 'google mail, or gmail;, you need to do it through Google. You don't say if you are using Windows Live MAIL, if so its pretty straight forward to change the password, but please respond and ill talk you though it. Hope this helps
I had this same problem... I've had to keep trying different passwords, until I got it. Remember that first password you've always used....? Now try to remember the next and so on... You will be locked out after a few tries, then try again the next day (or hour, etc). Make sure you write down each password as you type it... and mark the correct one. THEN change it to a new STRONGER one and write that down somewhere no-one else can find it.... You'll know where!
Hope this helps... IF NOT then you will have to contact the staff of your "Email Provider"... go to their website and look along the bottom for the "Contact Us" icon/button.
The procedure for recover password on yahoo is to report it forgotten ..and complete the asking ..for the security question s...usually if you have made teh account you will remember the answer for the question cause they are quite personal ..and you can only get wrong a few times..If you had attached a secondary email to the account it is easier cause you choose this method and complete with the correct email address and they send you a link to change teh password in the secondary email ..but if you do not have on e..and you forgot the password the only way is to go with the reporting ..and confirm zip code..and birthday ..and all they ask .including second question .. I suggest to try with the password you used to have ..if you remembered it ..cause unless someone whom knew the password made a bad joke and changed it ..the old password should still be in use..even if it was blocked for some reason ..report the account blocked ..and they will unlock it and you will be able to use the old password..probably it was blocked cause someone tried the wrong password for a few times..and repeatedly ...or you typed something wrong ..or used the cap.lock on .and caused the account to lock for security reasons..If not ..just make a second account and make in in a way to be almost like the other one so people to recognize it fats ..and send a collective email to all the people you still have the emails ....They can be present in the back-ups ..or on the ipod..if you used to save the agenda...
Basically you should know your email address. If you forget both of your email address and password, I recommend you create a new email. But if you just forget the password while the email address still remember, just click forget password on sing in page of your email. You will asking for alternative email or special question. Just proceed this process to get back your email.

if you know your email address that you set your myspace account with then just get the password recovered or rest that will send a link to your email address mail that you follow instructions to sort a new password out
Don't you have an alternate email on your yahoo account from when you set it up? This is done for things like this so they can send you your password. It actually happened to me once except someone else changed my password. Go to Yahoo I think at the bottom it says "contact us" and will give you a number. If not, just type in yahoo email support phone numbers. You will get a 1-800 # and they will give you a temp. password to get in and make yourself a new one. Then I suggest you make an alternative email if for nothing more than these situations.
