Somehow for whatever reason you've forgotten the password, the answer to your secret question and never set up, or no longer have access to the alternate email address associated with the account. Or your account has been hacked and your password, secret answer and alternate email address have all been changed.
I cannot help you.
Contact your email service provider and tell them what it happening. They should have some way of identifying you, after which they should be able to reset your password. This is typically the approach for pay services - they may verify your identity with your credit card number or some other piece of information they collected at the time you signed up.
Unfortunately, this almost never works for free accounts. Why? Because these accounts are free, there's almost no customer support. You get what you pay for.
Let me be even clearer about that:
If:
You're using a free email service such as HotMail, Yahoo, and others
... and you forgot or lost your password
... and you forgot or lost the answer to your secret question
... and you did not set up an alternate email address, or you lost access to the alternate email address
... and customer service is not responding to you
You are out of luck.
I know of no way to recover your account. I cannot help you.
You absolutely can and should try contacting customer service for the email service you are using - they are the only ones who could help you. But my experience is that they rarely do.
Learn from your mistake.
If you lose access to your account and cannot recover it, you'll want to set up a new account. Learn from this.
Choose good passwords that you will remember. It's tough, given the number of accounts and passwords we all need to remember, but the fact is choosing a hard-to-guess password, and changing it regularly are important steps you can take to avoid someone stealing your account.
Don't share your password with anyone. A number of the account hacks I hear about are the result of trusting someone you shouldn't have.
Remember your secret answer. I'm kind of surprised I even have to say this, but when you create an account that asks you for a secret question and answer, don't treat it lightly. It doesn't have to be true ... just make sure it's something you'll remember in a year or two or ten when (not if) you have a problem.
Set up an alternate email address. This is where password reminders would get emailed to. And remember that if you lose access to your alternate email address, you need to change it in any accounts that reference it.
Don't use "remember me" when logging in. At least, don't use it unless you're positive it's safe. If someone else walks up to the computer (be it in an internet cafe, or in your bedroom or office) and "remember me" is selected ... they can now login as you without knowing your password. And then they can change your password and everything else, locking you out of your own account.
And, perhaps most important of all:
Don't use free email accounts for anything important.

Im desperate to have some messages sent to a non friend deleted or marked as spam or abuse. the messages are unread.


Was really is your intention? Facebook wouldn't mark you as spam or abusive if only one or two friends mark your messages as abusive but if more people(No definite number) mark your messages as spam or abusive, there's a tendency that u might have problems with your account.

I have just found out my msn account has been hacked and someone has changed my password. Since then, there are imappropriate pictures of myself sent to all my contacts. What do I do ? macqueen...


try changing your password by enetering your security info, if you cant change your password by using the security info you set before then email msn using the original account you used to setup the email address with. If you can do neither of the two then you are out of luck, apart from emailing msn and threatening to sue them if they dont stop the pictures from being sent

My address toonbuckley@yahoo.ca has been hacked/hijacked and someone is sending out messages with my address so can we kill this adress and open another. please advise Thomas D. Buckley


As you are saying that your address is hacked i.e. you yourself cannot open and go inside the account in this case you shall open one new account. and ask all your friends using yahoo account to report abuse on that particular account. Once 12-15 users have reported abuse to an account the account will be disabled by yahoo. Yes you should open one new account and mind that you should use atleast one wild card character and a non dictionery password so that it cannot be hacked in.
