Just received email that my account is closesing if I don't fill in again I have just changed my password for the second time what is wrong?


Huh?
You said "fill in". Do you mean "log in"?

When you change a password, they give you a temporary one. It's temporary because they expect you to use it to log into your account and change the password they gave you to a secret password that only you know. You have to change the password while logged in. You go to "settings" or "account settings" or something.
If you just keep using the temporary password they give you, then all then anyone who works at their email company can probably figure out what your password is.

If you dont remember your password and secret Questions too than you verify it by alternative email which you provide to verify your account and give it when you register for an account.

6. If you never login to the Gmail for the previous 24 hours, a secret question as set in the Google Account will be presented. Answer the question with a correct answer in order to be able to reset the password.

If you're unable to answer your security question and the account has a secondary email address configured, a link will appear at the bottom of the secret question results page. Clicking on the link will has a password reset email message sent to the secondary email mailbox. After receiving the email, follow the link to reset the password.

I have to change my password in yahoo messenger, my old password doesn't work.


You can find the "Forgot Your Password?" right on the bottom part of the Yahoo Messenger window after you open it, it is usually highlighted with lightblue color, right below the "Get a new Yahoo ID " link.....click the the Forget Your Password? link and it will help you throughout the process on how to change your password. All you got to do is provide the information you've provided before, when you have signed for a yahoo mail account. Most importantly, you need your secret answer to your secret question. That's it! You can now change/retrieved your password and access your account.
Please rate if this helps.....Goodluck!
