    Hello yahoo,

    after getting my new yahoo-email "robbe@yahoo.com" (new account) i am going to move my communication from here (old account, see sender) to there.
    Therefore i deleted my second email-address here (sendmail.robbe) to make this the second adress of my new account.
    But, even 24h later, the "sendmail.robbe"-ID seems to be not avaiable.
    My idea, of course, was to receive my mails without using the redirection for this adress.

    Please make the "sendmail.robbe" avaiable again for i am missing a lot of mails since i tried the move.
    Regards, Robert Kah

    My Yahoo account has been compromised. Someone has been sending e-mails in my name and my Yahoo account. I have not opened the link that was sent in those e-mails to some of the people on my e-mail list. Please look into this and find out who is sending these bogus e-mails in my name/account. In the alternative, you may close my Yahoo account permanently and I will subscribe to another e-mail service. Thank you.

    Yahoo will never ask you for information like that; nor will anyone else. Go into your email settings and increase the strength of your spam filter; only accept mail from contacts in your approved list. All other emails are rejected or require your approval.

    You can write yahoo customer service and they can reset the account from there end. Otherwise, if the password reset doesn't work it's because they changed the information so you couldn't reset the password. Yahoo also has the right to terminate the account for violating it's terms of service agreement which is why the scammers' hacked your account so they could use it to scam your contacts.

Unable to reach customer care, keep getting disconnected


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.

Someone has taken over my yahoo e- mail .


I hope you mean that your Yahoo mail account has been hacked. If this is the case, just open your account profile and change your password - to something unique and something you will remember. Notify your friends (in your yahoo contact list) that you were hacked and to not open any attachments or links from strange emails from your address.

If someone has stolen your yahoo account, and has change your password, and you no longer have access, you will need to notify yahoo customer service. I believe that you can report this to abuse@yahoo.com

Provide yahoo as much information as possible, your user name, your last access to the account, and other email accounts listed (for backup security purposes). Do not list any passwords or dates of birth or any other security information.

A hacker change my yahoo mail confirmation & password


I am sorry to hear that someone has hacked into your Yahoo account and changed your password. There are a couple of methods you can try to resolve this problem. First thing to do is to try and log into your account by entering your user name and instead of entering the password that you already know will not work, click on the "forgot my password" link. When you click this link and report that you do not have your password, it will give you a couple of different options to recover it. If you still have access to an alternate email account that you listed on file with Yahoo when you created your Yahoo email you can send a password reset to that email and recover your account quickly. If you did not specifiy an alternate email address or someone has changed the one you had on file so you cannot receive a password reset at an address that you still have access to - then try answering the security questions you have on file to verify your identity. There should be three questions on file that you should know the answers to. If you cannot answer these questions, then its time to contact Yahoo customer service direct and explain to them - NOT that you have forgotten your password but that the security on your email account has been compromised and you need to stop access until this has been resolved. They will ask you questions about people that you frequently email and others things about your account that only you would know. It takes 24 hours to reset an email account after your identity has been compromised. If you are unable to locate the customer service number for yahoo here are a few suggestions:

UK Customer Care:

Some one stole my yahoo account


Most likely someone has got into your email account and/or changed your password. You may be able to change the password to prevent someone accessing it.
Else.
Create a new Yahoo email address and abandon the old one.
