Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have an account with yahoo.. The account was as follows. Ive have had this account for several years. Recently I was requested to verify my account details before I could go into my Email. When I entered my details I was informed that it did not tally with their records. I was given 3 options to choose from..1.forgot my password. 2. My Cel number and 3. My account has been tampered with. .. I tried each option several time and was given the choice to enter my secret answers.. but clicking on that, I got the reply that that option was not available. I was also told that a password would be sent to my celphone later. Each time I was told that I could only try again in 12 hours time as I had been givern 3 opportunities to reactivate my account. (Email) I eventualy gave up hope of getting into my Email which when I got messages from my friends on face book I was directly connected to the particular status and could place my comment on that particular status or posting. I subsequently decided to open another Email account on yahoo and this time I used the address as with my new password the same but added one more letter than my previous password. I succeeded in getting my account with exactly all the data since I first logged into facebook.. and all my connections were there. Now, however, It would seem asif all my friends statusses and postings still go to my original account (alansmart223 etc and I dont receive them on my now current email alancsmart123 etc. I had also changed my profile cover from a photo of the summit of Kilomanjaro.. to a fantacy pic of a woman looking at the ruines of a greek setup. My problem is that I would still want to be able to post comments on my friends status but their Emails are all going to the a.....223 yahoo acount and for some reason or other all my history and connections are now on....123 yahoo account. I have also tried many times to get into my alan...223 account by no such account can be found by yahoo..At one time about 2 months before this my 'puter was unstable after a thunder storm had knocked out the power.. but there were no problems after that, until now. My password for the 223 account was CalLous. My secret Answers were.. favourite scientist = Einstein and favourite writer: Terry Pratchet. Please, if any further info is required my cel nr. is 072 307 2455. Kindly inform me of what the problem is on Regards. Alan Smart.

Hi babaelf,
The problem is due to cookies.
Every time you sign in on a page a cookie gets set in your browser so the website knows it's you he's talking to. This way if some other person from another computer tries to access the same URL they won't be able because they don't have the cookie set on, thus they can't identify as being you.
This is the reason for which you can't access the email - you should first sign in using their sign in page so that they are able to set your cookie.
The sign in page is:
also make sure you have cookies enabled in yoru browser settings!
Best Regards, WBW team

I blocked yahoo messenger I want it unblocked so I can chat with friends how can I get it unblocked

Please go to the following page to attempt to reset your password:

(If your security questions may have been recently changed, please pick "My account may have been compromised", you may see a 'This is not my question' link underneath each question.)

If you are successful with that process, you can go ahead and skip the rest of the steps...

(Important - if you have another account with Yahoo, please sign out of that account before trying to complete the form below.)
Otherwise, if it is not successful, please follow the instructions below as a 'last resort' account recovery:

Please go to this page:

That recovery form was created so that people who cannot access their alternate email or answer their security question(s).

You'll need to have an alternate email account set up so that they may contact you. You can get a free account from for this.

Place your alternate email address under the "What is the email address where we can contact you?" section.

It will take 2-7 business days for someone from Yahoo to get back to you.

Thank you.

My yahoo account has been locked How can i open please help me?

This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.

The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.

If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

To reset your password, or for further help, visit the following page:

I have not used Yahoo Messenger in several years. Trying to sign into it again & I can't. I have also switched from dial-up to satellite connection so don't know if that has something to do with it?

As you mentioned that you have not used Yahoo Messanger for Several years, possiably your account would have been disabeled.

You would first need to login to the Yahoo website, to your email account, to reactivate your account. Once that is done you would be able to use the Messanger, ane not before that

How to Synchronise yahoo mail in MS Outlook 2003

The problem is that in order to use Yahoo email on a Outlook, POP3 or HTTP, Yahoo asks you to get Yahoo Mail Plus. They are forcing you to pay for 19.99 a year to be allowed a POP3 account to use for your Outlook 2003 and mail forwarding.

I've tried several methods, even trying HTTP:

Ive even used software that said it would allow this. But no luck.

POP3 is only provided and activated by YAHOO when you pay for the yearly subcription.

Sorry. Thats really the only solution there is to this because yahoo controls their services to every user.

I hope this helps.
