Under the space where you enter your password is a button labeled "Forget your ID or password?" press it and answer the questions to get a new password.

Under the login boxes, there is a link for "Forgot User ID or Password?". You can click on that link and follow the instructions to retrieve this information.

SOURCE: i can't access or open any yahoo mail account on this computer

Your account may be locked for security reasons This happens because somebody tried to make a large amount of attempts to guess your password and enter your account. Many times, it's not actually someone trying to access the account, they just know that by sending a huge amount of requests, they can cause the user problems by having their account closed.
The servers understand that a human can make about 5 or 6 attempts a minute, this would be normal if you had forgotten your password or made a typo etc... and at this rate, it would take 18011 years to guess your password.
An automated program however, could make 1000s of requests a minute or even more! Its when the server experiences these numbers, for your own security, it locks your account.
Fix:
First, visit http://login.yahoo.com/config/login Don't Worry! The first attempt will fail, say incorrect password or something. It's the second attempt that matters. What you will see this time, is that you have a word verification. This is a secure system by which only humans could be making the request, bots cannot see the text, they see encrypted numbers.
For some, this is it, the account will log in again! For others, it's not so. You have to wait up to 48hrs for the account to come back.

SOURCE: Unable to login my yahoo account since 07.08.10.

had the same problem starting Aug 11, 2010 - mid day. It is strange. I've reported it to yahoo, and they are taking a long time. I've had my account for more than 10 years. It is something on their end for sure.

SOURCE: I cannot login to my yahoo mail nor yahoo

Yahoo is currently updating their servers, has been going on all weekend. I have just logged in at 11:05 am EST and it seems to be working correctly again.
I was having problems with mail on Outlook, on the website, and on my phone. Maybe the update is complete (hopefully).

Locked out of yahoo account


If you suspect that someone has hacked your Yahoo! account or if you attempt to log in your account too many times with an incorrect password, Yahoo! might lock you out of your account.

After several failed login attempts, the Yahoo! security feature locks your account for a predetermined amount of time to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.

Unauthorized users might use your account to send unsolicited emails or intrude on your private content and emails.

Although being locked out of your Yahoo! account can be frustrating, you can gain access to your account and change your password after the lock expires.

Wait 24 hours.
Return to the Yahoo! website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.


Click "I Can't Access My Account."
Select "I Forgot My Password" or "My Password Doesn't Work" from the list of options.

Click the "Next" button to proceed.
Enter your Yahoo! ID in the "My Yahoo! ID is" field.


Enter the security code in the "Enter the Code Shown" field. Click the "Next" button.
Click "I Cannot Access Any of the Above" and click the "Next" button.
Type the answers to the security questions in the appropriate fields.

You set these security quests when you created your Yahoo! Account.
Click "Next."


Enter a new password in the field and verify the password by retyping it in the field.
Click the "Next" button and Yahoo! resets your password.

The new password is effective immediately, allowing you to sign in your Yahoo! account.

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.

Why can't I log into my ymail account! I try to log into my ymail account and I can't. I usually can, but not now.


If cannot login anymore to your yahoo mail because you maybe you forgot the password?Or forgot your Yahoo ID. If Yes, then just click on I CANNOT ACCESS MY ACCOUNT on the Login Screen. Then choose whether its for your password or for your Yahoo ID. You may also try and click on the last option which is: MY ACCOUNT MAY HAVE BEEN COMPROMISE. Type your Yahoo ID and then type in your alternate email and click on NEXT. Your login details will be send to your alternate email.

When I log into yahoo mail it logs in to the user id I have requested for it to keep me logged in for 2 weeks. How do I log into Yahoo under a different user id under these circumstances?


You can't. You cannot be simultaneously logged into 2 yahoo accounts. You need to log out of the existing one to log into the second yahoo ID. However you may be simultaneously logged into 1 yahoo email and ine google or hotmail. The way around this is to have a second user account on the computer and be logged simultneously into both user accounts, and be logged into a diffferent yahoo email in each user account
