Can't access my YAHOO email, even though connected to INTERNET !!!


Many times, you can recover a hacked or compromised Yahoo! account after using on-site password-recovery tools.
The process can take a few minutes to complete, but once you are finished you'll be back in your account.
If the password-recovery method does not work, then you can always contact the security group at Yahoo! Inc. via email.
Of course, you'll need access to a secondary email address to message the company's support team.

Type "login.yahoo.com" into the browser's URL address field.
You are greeted by the Yahoo! account sign in page.
Click the "I can't access my account" link in the box on the right side.
Select the "My account may have been compromised" option from the choice of sign in problems.
Click the "Next" button.
Type your Yahoo! ID and security code on the next page.
Click "Next" to continue.
Select an alternative email address to send a reset link to.
This only works if you previously added a secondary email address.
If not or the alternative email address has been tampered with, then select the "I can't access any of the above" option.
Click "Next."
Answer the security questions on the next few pages.
You will usually have to answer at least two security questions.
Enter a new password and repeat the password when prompted.
Click the "Next" button to finalize the password-reset process.

When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked. Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution.
The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account.
Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked.
Unlocking Accounts
To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.
When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page.
Leave your My Yahoo page open.
Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger.
If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care.

Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software.

Other Sign-in Issues

How to Change a Yahoo ID Name for a Chat Room |


INSTRUCTIONAL STEP TO FOLLOW
From the main page of Yahoo.com, click on the "More Yahoo! Services" option at the left side of the screen. In the pop-up screen, click on the"Chat" option. The following page will direct you to a place where you can download Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you download the correct version that is compatible with your operating system, and that youclosely follow the appropriate steps for installing the chatting tool. Wait to be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password in order to sign on.You may already have a Yahoo! ID if you have previously signed up for a Yahoo! service. The majority of users typically have a Yahoo! ID from using Yahoo! Mail. You can sign on with the same user ID and password you use for your Yahoo! Mail if you would like. But keep in mind that members of a chat room might have easier access to finding out who you are. The safest and best option is to create an alternative ID name and password. Instead of signing into Yahoo! Messenger with the user ID you already have,click on the "Create Yahoo! ID" option at the bottom the Yahoo!Messenger page. A new screen should appear that prompts you to create an entirely new user ID. However, this time, only include the minimal information needed to create a user ID. For example, you do not need to include your alternative email. When finished, click on "Create MyAccount."Now that you have an alternate Yahoo! ID, only use your newly created user ID for when you enter a chat room. You can still sign onto Yahoo!Messenger using your normal Yahoo! ID to chat with trusted friends.Once you are signed on with your normal Yahoo! ID, you can switch to your alternate user ID before entering chat rooms. The following, final step will help you with this simple process. Clickon "Profile" in the top toolbar, then click on "My Profiles." Now clickon "Edit Profiles." You will be taken to your normal Yahoo! profile.Click on "Account Info" in the top, right-hand corner of the page.Click on "Edit/Create Aliases" on the right-hand side of the page. You can now add the new Yahoo! ID you have created. Once this is complete,go back to Yahoo! Messenger and click on "Join a Yahoo! Chat Room" frothe "File" option in top toolbar. At the top of the chat-room pop-up,you now have the option to switch your Yahoo! ID before entering a room.

Yahoo account is saying "this id is not yet taken"


I faced the same problem today. After brain storming and my experience I found a way back to my mail. You need to install yahoo messenger and try login, might take a couple of times. If log in is successful it will show you a message " ___ new mails" click on that and you are in.
To check whether your Account name has been taken or not, just click on Sign up at yahoo and put your account name in and check for the availability. It should show this account is not available.
Alternatively you can visit "meebo.com" and you can try login there, but you can not access your emails there, though you can chat with your friends even in your university.

I just started working with computers need to check emails and how to go chat


Firstly, do you have an email account. Sites like yahoo.com, hotmail.com and gmail (Google.com) are quite popular and free. After you have signed up for an email account you are now ready to send and receive email. To chat you can either Google search for any online chat rooms. Just simply Google search "Chat rooms" and follow instructions from there.

You may also, if you signed up for yahoo or hatmail or even gamil, connect to other users via instead messenger and talk to family and friends you have added to your account. You must download the IM messenger first. Yahoo Chat seems popular.

Let me know if I could be of any further help.
