If you remember your old email address and phone number you might be able to contact the service provider through their contact section. Explain what happened. Tell them, if they reply, that you will provide them the necessary added information which you would have provided at signup and the old address and password.
To avoid problems like this in the future consider acquiring a screen capture program such as snag-it. If you capture the screen information before you click send, you can keep that infromation in a folder on your computer. Another option is to use a program like TypeItIn which can store the information for you.

Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

I KNOW MY PASSWORD, HOWEVER THE SYSTEM KEEPS REJECTING IT


When it fails the password, it usually gives you a chance to send it to your email address. Now being that this is an email address that sounds well dumb, however, when you first setup the account it asks you for an email address, just for this problem, sell tell it you forgot your email address and it will send it to your other listed email address, where you can go and get the password. Then use the password it gave you to enter your account and then change the password to what you want.

Someone has hacked into my address book and sent letters to all my contacts saying that I was mugged in England and need money. I have changed my password but I have noticed that my contact list is missing...


First thing is to reset the password next try contacting yahoo customer service about your problem to get info about strange IP address behavior Even ask about the backup of contacts, may be they can help you on this.
Most important thing with yahoo accounts is its very easy to hack it by trying forgot password questions. ( To see what I am saying try forgot password on your id and you will be able to see how simple it is get access to your account by answering 3 secret questions which you had set when creating the yahoo account and even many of your friends might know the answers) So reset your forgot password questions with more tougher ones to crack.
I had the same problem earlier and I had reset my yahoo password several times, but my roommate was able to access my mails without my notice. Then realized that he is accessing my account through forgot password as the questions to retrieve forgot password are the same old ones with questions like what is your birthplace which he already knows very well.
Hope this helps and be safe online as it is very easy to access your financial details and credit card details when your email is hacked.
