Question about Yahoo Mail

Can't access email account. I use the forgot password etc options but can't get past the verify id page requesting you to enter a code. I do what is ask but it just keeps asking me to do it over and

All of a sudden I can't access my email. I first noticed this on my iphone. It said the password was incorrect when I know it had not been changed. I then tried to log into mail account on the pc and I can't login. I have tried all the recovery options, e.g. forgot id, email has been compromised. Each option takes me to a page to "verify my id" asking me to type in the code shown. When I do this and click enter it take me back to the verify ID page asking for the code, no many how many times I try its keeps taking me back to the same page and asks me to enter the code to verify my id. Does anyone know how to fix this? I need to access my emails and don't know what else I can do. I can't find any help. So any help would be appreciated.

It seems that your account was hacked. If you don't have alternate email address, there's no way of getting it back. There must be some secret questions that you need to answer in order to solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to create a new account. Hope this helps.

    Forgot my Password/login - need a new account


    People sometimes forget their email username or password even both.
    Fortunately, you can retrieve your username if you can supply some information that verifies your identity.
    However, if you forget your password, you must select a new one.
    You will need access to the alternate email address you supplied when you created your current email account.

    Go to your email program and click the link under the sign-in fields to recover a lost email ID or password.
    The title of this link may vary, depending on your email program.
    For instance, look for "Can't access your account?" in Gmail and look for "I can't access my account" in Yahoo! Mail.
    Clicking this link will take you to a page with several options.
    Select the appropriate option to retrieve your email ID.
    For instance, select "I forgot my username" in Gmail and "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" in Yahoo! Mail.

    Enter the alternate email address you provided when you signed up for the email account.
    You may have to enter other information as well, such as your date of birth, country of residence and zip code.
    Go to the email account for the address you provided.
    Open the account recovery message from your email service provider to view your username.
    If your username is not provided, there should be a link.
    Follow the directions included in the message to retrieve your username with this link.
    Reset Your Password
    Click the link beneath the log-in fields on your email account sign-in page.
    In Hotmail, this link is titled "Forgot your password?" and "Trouble signing in?" in BigString.
    Choose the relevant option on the following page to retrieve your password.
    Type in your user ID and press the "Enter" key.
    The email program automatically sends a message to your alternate email address.
    Go to your alternate email account and open the message from your email service provider. Follow the directions in the message to reset your password.
    Recover Old Email Accounts
    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 forgot my facebook password. The email that is set for the account is one that I can no longer access so sending a reset code to it will not work.


    Hi,
    In the Facebook login page, Select the forgot password link. Enter either your username or email id that you use to login or your phone number. If you have registered your phone, you would get your password as an text message. If you enter your email id you'll be taken to the next page asking for confirmation. In this page, your primary ID and an alternate ID would have been mentioned. If you have access to any of these, Submit the request. If not, select 'Don't have access to any of these?' below and enter a new email address. This should work

    I forgot my password and dont remember my answer to the security question. HELP


    You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
    If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
    • Your birthday
    • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
    • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
    • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
    Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
    If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
    • Your Yahoo! ID
    • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
    A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
    If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.

    When you request a new password, need technical support, or have questions about your billing, Yahoo! usually asks you for your Secret Question for verification that you are who you say you are.
    To protect your account from unauthorized access, Yahoo! must be able to confirm your identify. You can confirm your identity in one of the following ways:
    • Answer your Secret Question (also referred to as a Security Question)
    • Provide a valid alternate email address or mobile phone associated with your account (if you no longer have access to that email address or phone number, it's not valid)
    If you can't sign in but have provided an alternate email address or phone number, you won't need to verify your Security Question. Go to the Sign-in Problems page for help logging in to your account.
    If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.
    If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
    We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account. To add or edit an alternate email address or mobile phone, go to your ACCOUNT INFO: Manage your email addresses page.
