If your using microsoft outlook to open yun e-mail i suggest you edit the e-mail configuration and make sure you put a check on remember password so that you will not be prompted for a username and a password everytime you try to refresh or if outlook session expires.

Why cant I login into my account ?


Here are some things to check:
  • Are you online? Check by visiting a site you don't have to log-in to, like google.com
  • Do you have CAPS LOCK key on? This will make all lower case characters into UPPER case, which can cause problems.
  • Some laptops have a NUM LOCK feature which turns a portion of the keyboard into a numeric keypad, so when you think you are typing 'asd' you are actually typing '456'. Check for lights that might show this feature is active. Check the manual to see how to disable it (or power off and on again).
  • Is your username correct? Many sites these days use your email address as your username, so try that.
  • Is your password correct?
  • Has your password expired? Some sites/systems do this. In this case you may have to contact the site/system admin via email.
  • Is it a restricted site/system? Sometimes you need to be on a particular network - e.g. to access company systems you may need to connect to their network via VPN. Also some sites/systems may restrict access to particular IP addresses or MAC addresses. In this case, you need to be using the same computer you used when you last were able to login successfully.
  • Is your account locked? This can happen when you make too many attempts to login with the wrong password. Usually you can wait a few minutes/hours and try again.
  • Could someone else have gained access to your account? It may be possible that someone has accessed your account and changed the password. If you think this is a possibility you should contact the system/site admin via email and request your password to be reset. Usually this will mean they send a new password to your email account.
  • Logging in to your PC is sometime not possible if the system is 'frozen' - this can be caused by programs running in the background that use all your computer's resources. In this case, you can wait a few hours or power off and on again.

I have forgotten my email address how do I find it


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

I need to open a new Yahoo account


1) Go to Yahoo.com. In the top right is a Mail link. Click that to begin the email signup process, or click Yahoo! Mail.

2) Click on the Create New Account button. It's that ginormous yellow button near the top right of the Yahoo! home page, next to the even-more-ginormous ad.

3) Choose your login. You can also choose to sign in with your Facebook or Google account. Instead of clicking Create New Account, click the Facebook or Google login buttons to create a Yahoo! email address. Once you've linked your Facebook or Google username and allowed the connection, you will fill out the rest of the Yahoo! Mail signup form.

4) Enter your basic info. Fill in your name, gender, birthday, country, language, and postal code in the appropriate fields.

5) Create a Yahoo! ID and password. Make it one that you will be comfortable using for a long time, as this will identify you to your email recipients. Remember that you can use numbers and letters and even a single dot.
  • Type the Yahoo! ID of your choice in the field provided, and then select one of 3 domains: yahoo.com, ymail.com, and rockemail.com. Verify the availability of your username/domain combination by clicking the Check button to the right.You may have to think of an alternative username if your top choice is already taken by another Yahoo! user.
  • Choose a password when you have successfully entered a unique username. Passwords must be at least 6 characters long and keep in mind that passwords are case-sensitive. You will be asked to type your password twice to ensure accuracy.
6) Add secure mental backup. In case you forget your login or password (yes, it happens), enter an alternate email address, and pick 2 secret questions from the pop-down menus.
  • After you've selected your questions, enter the correct answer-one that you are not likely to forget. Yahoo! will ask you this question if you should forget your password in the future, in order to verify that you are the correct user.
7) Verify you are not a robot. Enter the visual code that only humans (with warped glasses) can read. Type the characters shown in the last section of the registration page, into the field provided. Read the Terms of Service. Doesn't everybody? Thoroughly examine every page till the end or till your eyes glaze over, and then print a copy for your records.

I AM VISITING HERE OUT OF STATE AND i WANT TO ACCESS MY E-MAIL. i AM IN UTAH AND i LIVE IN FENTURA cALIFORNIA


If your mail account is bound to your provider, they usually have a webmail address where you can access your email account, when you are away from home.

Contact your email provider and ask their support how to enter your email account when you are away from home.

If you have 1 or more web email accounts f.ex. like Yahoo, Hotmail, GMail etc. , you can always acces these accounts anywhere a computer is available. Just use your login and password.

Hope these answers help

When i send e-mail, it is returned to me stating authentication is required to send mail as geoandjude@windstream.net


When it asks you to enter a username and password, this is authentication. If it has never asked you that, you may have to remove and re-add your email account.

Depending on what program you're using, you might have to manually add your password to your account under Outgoing Messages. If you recently changed your password on your email address, you will have to do this.

Usually these settings can be found in "Accounts", "Account Settings", or something similar.
