I forgot my yahoo password


Click on the "forgot my password" and they will ask you a security question you answered when you set up the account. Just answer the security question and it should log you on and ask you if you want to change your password.

Tip

Protect your computer, your information, and your company?s network


10 ways to work more securely

The security of your computer and data is crucial for you and the success of your company. Lost or stolen information can reveal company secrets, or expose your confidential or personal information. The more you do to keep your computer secure, the safer your information will be. Use these 10 tips to learn ways you can help protect your computer, your data, and your company's network.
1. Work with your IT department

Make sure that you install all of the patches and updates that your IT department recommends. In addition to installing Windows and Office updates, your IT department might require you to install additional security software, such as a firewall or custom software to help you connect from remote locations. Making these regular installations will keep your computer and your company's network as secure as possible.

Learn more about ways to manage your computer and devices at work.
2. Use strong passwords

Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your computer, and a good password is often underestimated. Weak passwords provide attackers with easy access to your computer and network. Strong passwords are considerably harder to crack, even with the latest password-cracking software.

A strong password:

*

Is at least eight characters long.
*

Does not contain your user name, real name, or company name.
*

Does not contain a complete dictionary word.
*

Is significantly different from previous passwords. Passwords that change just slightly—such as Password1, Password2, Password3—are not strong.
*

Contains characters from each of the following groups:
o

Uppercase and/or lowercase letters.
o

Numbers
o

Symbols (!,@,#,$,%, etc.)

Learn more about how to create strong passwords.
3. Don't enable the Save Password option

Make it mandatory for you—or someone else trying to access your computer—to enter your password on all operating system or application settings. If a dialog box prompts you about remembering the password, rather then requiring you to enter it, just choose no. Allowing the password to be saved negates having the password at all.
4. Use network file shares instead of local file shares

Rather than opening up your computer to co-workers, use network file shares to collaborate on documents. And restrict access to the network file share to only those who need it. If you're working on a team, you have lots of other options—such as using Microsoft Office Groove 2007 or Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007.
5. Lock your computer when you leave your desk

If you're going to be away from your desk for a while, make sure your computer is locked.

To lock your computer:

1.

On your keyboard, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE at the same time.
2.

Click Lock this computer (Lock Computer if you're running Windows XP).
3.

To unlock your computer, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and enter your password.

6. Use password protection on your screensaver

Sometimes you're away from your desk for longer than you unexpected. Plan for those situations by setting up your computer so that it locks itself after a specified amount of time.

7. Encrypt files containing confidential or business critical files

You keep valuable and sensitive data on your computer. You might have sensitive information about your company or clients, or your personal bank statements on a laptop you use at home and work. Encrypting your data keeps it as secure as possible. To help keep unauthorized people from accessing your data—even if your computer is lost or stolen—you should encrypt all sensitive data. In the Enterprise and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista, you can use BitLocker™ Drive Encryption to encrypt the entire volume. In Windows XP and all editions of Windows Vista, you can use the Encrypting File System (EFS) to protect important files. We highly recommend that you learn how to encrypt a file or folder to keep it safe.

8. Don't open questionable e-mails

If an e-mail message just doesn't look right, it probably isn't. Forward the e-mail message to your IT administrator to verify before you open it.
9. Encrypt e-mail messages when appropriate

If you're sending confidential or business-critical information, encrypt the e-mail and any files attached to it. Only recipients who have the private key that matches the public key you used to encrypt the message can read it.

10. Use the Junk E-mail Filter in Outlook

Receiving spam, or junk e-mail messages, isn't just annoying. Some spam can include potentially harmful viruses that can cause damage to your computer and your company's network. The Junk E-mail Filter reduces the amount of junk e-mail messages, or spam, you receive in your Inbox. Good news—if your junk mail filter is already active. But you can always change the settings.

Iwant get to my email just and just with username and password


There is a check box below the "password" box to "keep me signed in". There is no option to remember the password. So why don't you save yourself from entering the username and check out that box of "keep me signed in". And enjoy.

My computer program was updated but now I have to type in my e-mail address and password to access my e-mail


After the program update, the computer has lost it's autofill data. So even if you have kept "keep me signed in" box checked in, the browser cannot provide the login credentials to the Yahoo Mail Server.

So, you must provide the credentials and keeping the "keep me signed in" box checked in you have to login to your account. The next time your browser will not ask you again for ID and Password.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

I cannot configure my gmail account with outlook


To use your Gmail e-mail account in Outlook, you must first make sure POP3 support is enabled in Gmail, and then you can add it to Outlook.

  1. Log in to your Gmail account.
  2. At the top of any Gmail page, click Settings.
  3. In the Mail Settings window, click Forwarding and POP.
  4. In the POP Download section, select Enable POP or all mail or Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on.
  5. Click Save Settings.
  6. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  7. Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
  8. Click POP3, and then click Next.
  9. Under User Information, do the following:
  10. In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
  11. In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @gmail.com.
  12. Under Server Information, do the following:
  13. In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type pop.gmail.com.
  14. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.Gmail.com.
  15. Under Logon Information, do the following:
  16. In the User Name box, type your full e-mail address, including @gmail.com.
  17. In the Password box, type your password.
  18. Select the Remember password check box. Note You have the option to have Outlook remember your password by typing it in the Password box and selecting the Remember password check box. Having Outlook remember your password means that you won't have to type your password each time you access the account; however, it also means that the account is vulnerable to anyone who has access to your computer.
  19. Click More Settings.
  20. On the General tab, under Mail Account, type Gmail.
  21. Click the Outgoing Server tab, and then select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check box.
  22. Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server.
  23. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Server Port Numbers for both Incoming server (POP3) and Outgoing server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check boxes.
  24. Change the Outgoing server (SMTP) port number to 465. The Incoming server (POP3) port number should change automatically to 995 when you select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check box.
  25. Click OK.
  26. To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings. If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  27. Click Next, and then click Finish
  • Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
