    Emptied cache and deleted every cookie with yahoo. Yahoo e-mail works now.

  • Anonymous May 18, 2009

    I cannot get into my email on one of my accounts on my laptop. It keeps going back to the screen that asks me to verify password. I give it the password and it goes right back to that screen, over and over. None of the other yahoo email accounts have this problem. I have deleted all cookies a jillion times over the last four months. I have run registry cleaners. I can't remember how to stop my ad block program or even which one it is, or even if it would work to make it stop.

    Is there a spot on my computer that keeps info about that particular account? Something that says if it isn't the computer i use at work then I can't access that account's email?

I forget my password in my yahoo email and security answer.

When you set up your yahoo account, you would have submitted another email address for reasons like this.

For example, my alternate email address is a gmail account.

    Did you used other pc or laptop? If you used another pc or laptop, it is normal to ask you again about your username and password unless you will select the option whenever you will sign in the "log me in for 2 weeks etc".

    Why do i have to repeatedly sign-in on yahoo e-mail. i have signed in at leat 50 times in the past few days. i do click on the save this for 2 weeks. what is the problem???? thanks

    This can be one of two things, generally. Either your browser is clearing the cookies (or you are), or your account information is set to ask for your password more frequently.

    (1) Your password for Yahoo! is saved through a browser cookie. Therefore, if your browsers' cookies are cleared, you will be prompted to enter your password back in next time.

    (2) Go to your Options, then Mail options. Then go to your account information and sign in if needed. Towards the middle of the page, there should be an entry for Prompt for password, which you can edit. If it's less than 2 weeks, then you will be prompted for your password as often as it says.

    Also, if you log out of your account, you need to log back in each time.

    Hope this is of help. Please don't forget to rate this solution and have a good evening. :)

    I forget my yahoo mail password

    This isn't Yahoo it is a solution site for Yahoo mail problems. No one here will be able to give you your password. When you signed up to Yahoo you were asked security questions in case you forget your username or password. Under your Yahoo login there should be an option that says I forgot my password, click on it and follow the instructions
