Question about Yahoo Mail

Cannot log on to either of my yahoo email accounts

Everytime I try logging on, I get an error message stating the logon and password are incorrect when in fact they are correct. After a few attempts it takes me back to the main yahoo page and I start all over again. This has been happening to me for at the past 24 hours.

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

My yahoo account has been locked


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

did you receive a notification message from yahoo that your account is locked? if yes, the locking time is 24hours. The account that is locked is due to multiple log ins using a wrong password. and locks after 3 or so attempts.

Wait until the lock time limit had lapsed, then log in again using the correct password.]

You may need to try and log in and hit Forgot My Password if you cannot log in again when your account is unlocked. Do not lock yourself out again, do not attempt password more than twice if you know it won't work. Each time you try to log into your account, it may restart your time and lock it down again during the waiting period.

Do NOT touch it for at least 24 hours.

If you wish to change your password after this period;


Go to yahoo.com

click sign in;

click i cannot access my account;

click forgot password,

click next

Enter in your email address, the security code and try to reset your password. You can also use your alternate email address, or security questions for this.

Then try and sign in again.

Why i cannot log in to yahoo messenger my cousin yahoo ID?I


Logging into Yahoo messenger is similar in a way to logging into an email account, a log in ID and a password are required.
You mention that you are trying to log into your cousin's Yahoo messenger : has your cousin autorised you to log into his/her Yahoo messenger ? If yes, then get his/her Yahoo messenger's login ID and password & then, you can log into it.

I can't sign in on ym.it says i typed incorrect password but its not.


You must first check if the problem is with your e-mail account. Log in on your email account using your email address and password. If your were unable, settle first the issue with yahoo mail before you can log in with yahoo messenger.

If you can access your mail account, before signing in to yahoo messenger verify for capital letters in your password. If you are sure the password is correct, then the last option is to get in the answer and question portion of yahoo messenger to send to your e-mail the correct password on your yahoo messenger account. Click Forget Password to start the verification and reset your password.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Errror 81003005 wont let me sign in to yahoomessneger


ok, in my case i remembered I tried using a proxy on internet explorer and forgot to put it off, so the proxy connection was still on even though the proxy was dead.

It now a proven fact to me that internet explore settings are linked to yahoo mess!
so make sure your internet explorer is working ok without proxy:

1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
6. Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger account.

good luck =)
