Personal free yahoo id was merged with my "unfree"business account through AT&T
I have been around the board on this little issue more times than I care to admit today (Yahoo---Reset Password!!!---AT&T SBC---Reset Password!!!) It seems to be a little "tech" on who should/can/will reset the password for my free yahoo email. Dusty, with AT&T Yahoo, dealing with business accounts, seemed to think this "tech support" web site is the answer to resetting my free, personal yahoo email password. Please help!
My personal email ID= firstname.lastname@example.org
Merged business ID= email@example.com

Don't you have a substitute e-mail included when you registered for your Yahoo account? I usually put a substitute e-mail when signing up for new e-mail account so that I can send the password to my substitute e-mail.
Facebook is cross referencing contact details not emails. They do comparison on many levels to verify duplicate accounts, etc. They also do a "Friend" check to suggest new people as friends etc. Try recreating your Business account and DONT make yourself a friend of that account. Set privacy settings to FRIENDS ONLY and that will only allow customers you invite personally to join your business acct and not try and cross reference with other friends. DONT choose "Friends and Friends of friends" otherwise if your customer also has your personal Facebook as a friend it will try and link. Keep them both sterile of eachother.
I myself is a big time user of yahoo messenger and a regular chatter of 2
chat rooms and using yahoo from past 7 years.
This is true that he/she can change your account information and even
can hack it !! its quite a regular thing these days because of loop
holes in yahoo account security.
DON'T EVER USE YOUR MAIN ID (THE ID IN WHICH YOU ADD FRIENDS )
Booters (who can disconnect you from messenger wither by hanging your
yahoo messenger or by making you forcefully signout from messenger) and
hackers are there on yahoo.
I got solution/s for this problem:-
1-use ysupra chat client.Its freely downloadable..you can search on google to download it freely,it provides a lot of security to out accounts while we use our id in chat rooms.This is the best chat client till date.
2-Make ids with numbers,like my id is eric_the_hunk27...i have made other ids with numbers like eric_the_hunk22..21...25..26. AND DONT ADD ANYONE ON THESE IDS.MAKE THESE IDS JUST FOR CHAT ROOMS.This helps a lot ,first people in chat room will recognise you.On ysupra..almost 99% of the booters can't boot you,its very safe.
2-while using ysupra,you can simultaneously sign -in in your yahoo messenger too,use yahoo messenger to sin\gn in with your main id (the id in which you add friends and want to be safe and secure from any kind of attack),don't use your main ID in chat room ever.
3- incase you want to add soneone in chat room to your main id,then you just have to send add request from your main id to that person..that's easy..just type the id of that person to whom you want to add in "type id here" in your yahoo messenger and then press enter,then add the person.
IN THIS WAY,YOU WILL BE VERY VERY SECURE...
ALMOST 99% OF THE HACKERS ON YAHOO HACK THE ACCOUNTS WHEN THE PERSON TO WHOME THEY WANT TO HACK IS IN CHAT ROOM.ITSD BECAUSE THEY CAN TRACE YOUR IP ADDRESS IN CHAT ROOM.
SO,IF YOU DON'T TAKE YOUR MAIN ID IN CHAT ROOM..THEY WONT BE ABLE TO HACK YOUR ID...
AND IF THEY HACK THE CHAT ROOM ID THAN ITS NOT AN ISSUE BECAUSE YOU WONT BE HAVING FRIENDS IN THOSE IDS..AND YOU WOULD BE USING THOSE IDS JUST FOR CHAT ROOMS...
YOU CAN MAKE AT MAX 6 IDS FROM YAHOO MESSENGER IN 24 HOURS TIME...I GUESS THIS IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT...LOL
you have remember when you created your yahoo account you put your second email id and some personal question's with hint, now the right time to use those security questions with right answer which you putted. your password will be reset and you will receive your new password in your second email id which you had gave. .
ATT.net creates a new Yahoo account for you when you sign up for their service. You now have a Yahoo account that can be accessed with the ladyg.....@att.net as the user and whatever your ATT pass is.
It is possible to merge the new account with the old account:
The article states that you can only merge only during the registration process, but I believe this to be false.
I no longer have ATT, but there was an option to merge a Yahoo account while managing your ATT information (I belive this is accessible from your ATT home page). ATT should be able to assist you with that regardless of whether you merged during the registration process or not.
