How do i get back my bigpond web account.


If you've been locked out somehow, your account may have been hacked. If you've just forgotten your password then do the following:
You can only change the password for your BigPond Email with Outlook.com (formerly Windows Live/Hotmail) via Telstra. I am recommending that you change your password for logging into My BigPond / MyAccount this will then flow through to your email account.
Go to BigPond at bigpond.com
Click on the blue 'My BigPond' tab at the top right side of the home page.
Enter in your current username and password
Change your Password.
You can also access your email online by clicking on the webmail link this will take you into BigPond Email with windows live.
Note the new brand name is now BigPond email with Outlook.com. (formerly Windows Live/Hotmail).
If you are still having difficulty I suggest you have your password reset please visit bigpond.com/help/email and select 'Password reset'.
Hope this helps...

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 forgot my pattern password and my email password


Pattern Password ??????
Which email account ?????...
Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to Yahoo.com and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to Hotmail.com.
Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
You'll be asked to enter your email address.
Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
Click "Continue."
Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
Do not exit from this page.
You will need it later.
Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
Enter the confirmation code that you received.
Click "Next."
Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

Shaw webmail login


Which email account there are many ?

It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page.
Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

There should be a lost password option where it sends you a new password to another email address that was posted when you setup the GMail account.

I cannot sign into my email acount on Hotmail, I changed my password several times a few weeks aho and now I cannot remember which password I used and I can' t get on no matter what I do.


Good Afternoon, Randtrdh:

When you set up your Hotmail account, you were asked to set an alternate e-mail address just in case this happened. On some scrap of paper you may have the correct information, or you may have sent a friend (or yourself) an e-mail from the new address to announce your move. You can also look in the alternate address, or mail sent on your Outlook or Windows Live Mail (if you set it up) with the account information.

Now you know the hazards of memorizing "stacked" e-mail addresses. But if you used the address even once you can save that account. Otherwise, chase down the post-it or envelope back.

Good Luck!

You have to ask your for your password to be reset so you can choose a new one. One possible thing is that you have some caracters not accepted in your password. You need a second email address.

A colleague of mine had his hotmail account hacked and the password changed and the hackers sent out an email to his contacts requesting $ to get him out of a jam!...needless to say, he can't get into his...


All I can think to do (Besides calling Microsoft who currently owns hotmail), is to tell hotmail that you password. If he has another e-mail address he may have put this information in when signing up for his hotmail account. If he tells hotmail he forgot his password, they should send it or a new password to his other e-mail account. If he did not provide them with another account I reccomend calling microsoft.
