    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.

I can not get into my emails my passwoord dont work and i forget my first pets name what i put in my father is born in krugersdorp and stay in krugersdorp first pet name forget it please how and what


Hi,

If your account is not banned or deactivated by yahoo, try this site to enter into your yahoomail and change the password. If still not possible to get in and you have forgot the security question then the other option is to contact yahoo customer support here
(although its a waste of time contacting yahoo customer service) you can give it a try.

If any of these doesn't seems to work then the only remaining option is to sign up for a new yahoo mail account.

Hope this helps, thanks for using fixya.com

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.
