If you have forgotten your yahoo password and you cannot provide the same information you gave during registration or when you last updated your account. Without the correct verification information,You will not be able to obtain a new password. If there were a easy fix it would be open to abuse from hackers...Sorry.

What should I do I forgot my yahoo account security question?


If you can get in touch with someone @ Yahoo, they may offer you other security tests - like: list 3 email addresses in your Contacts list that you sent to recently.

Since your post is a year old, it may be too late for this particular account. But I'm posting this answer to let you [and others with similar problem] know that there is hope.

Reminder to all: setup an alternate email address on another service like Gmail or Juno. List that alternate email address in your account profile. There you can receive a temp password if you forget your original password. Always write down security answers and passwords on paper and put in a safe place. Computers crash - paper doesn't.

Yahoo locked me out cant remember my password HELP


Hi James


YAHOO MAIL ACCESS PROBLEM


When you set up an e-mail account with free public e-mail services such as Yahoo! Mail , Hotmail/Live or Google Mail, you are invited during the setup procedure to enter an Alternat(iv)e E-Mail Address. The purpose of this is to provide an address to which the Support Team of the E-mail Service Provider can send a link or code (or both) to enable users who have forgotten their passwords to reset their passwords.


Go to the Log In/Sign In page of the e-mail account you are having problems with and click on "Forgotten Password". Enter your alternative e-mail address and then submit a Password reset request. You may also be asked some security questions in order to verify you as the account holder. Once you have accessed and opened the Yahoo e-mail sent to the alternative e-mail address, click on the link inside and you will be allowed to reset your password.


To avoid mistyped password errors, this time, before you enter the new password, type it into a text or e-mail and then copy and paste that into the password box before submitting it. Send the text or e-mail containing the password to yourself or to your other, functioning e-mail address and save this e-mail in a discreet folder on your cellphone.


Unfortunately if, for any reason, you are unable to access the alternative e-mail address or accurately answer all the security questions, then you will never be allowed access that account again, unless you can remember and enter the correct Username, Password and Security Question.


In that event, however, there is nothing to stop you opening another Yahoo! Mail account. Only the Username/E-Mail Address will have to be different.

I hope this helps.

It would not let me use my old e-mail address to use my password. Would not let me sign in


Hi


You do not say which Operating System you are using, so my answer will be based on Windows systems. If you have non-Windows Operating System, you should still be able to follow the explanation.


If you have Yahoo Mail account and you are unable to access it, and then click Forgotten Password, Forgotten Username or Forgotten Username and Password (as appropriate) on the Login Page and then answer a series of Security Questions to prove you are the Authorised Account Holder. After this, Yahoo Support should allow you to Reset your Password and/or Username.


It is useful when setting up this type of E-mail account, to include, in the registration details, an Alternative E-mail Address to which Forgotten Passwords can be sent, after security screening. If you don't have an Alternative E-mail Address, set one up at the same time, or as soon as possible afterwards.


If you are unable to provide all the necessary Security Answers, it is possible that Yahoo Security will block all access to the account.


If it proves impossible to access the original account, open a new one and then e-mail all your essential and important Contacts to inform them of the new address. It may seem a difficult wrench to let go of an old e-mail address and the fear might persist that you will miss some e-mails that go astray but persevere anyway. People do this all the time when changing jobs. Most important or urgent information will find its way to you, by other means, if you fail to respond to an e-mail sent to a redundant address.


Save your E-mail Usernames and Passwords in a cryptic way by sending yourself a Cellphone SMS message containing them hidden in a long list of random letters and numbers.


Save your E-Mail Contacts on your computer, in the Contacts Folder in:


(My) Computer > Local C: > Documents and Settings > Contacts.


I hope this helps.

I cant log in because i forgot my password and the security answer


If you have forgotten the password for your Emial address and if that is an free email address then there is only 1 way that you can give it a try.. If you have updated the alternate email address then once when you click on forgot password a link would be sent to your alternate email address using which you can reset the password. If not then you have to get a new mail address now.

I inadvertently attempted to send a greeting card using an incomplete email address. Subsequently every attempt to email a card resulted in an error message that the card with the incomplete address was...


I have not tracked down what taman 2005 said. I would try "recalling" the message.
  1. Locate the Sent Items folder.
  2. Open the message that you want to recall or replace.
  3. Click Actions on the ribbon or menu, and then click Recall This Message.
  4. Enable the Delete unread copies of this message option to recall the message.
Check your inbox. Did you received a mail subsystem error message? If so, I would encourage you to delete both the message by which you attempted to send the card, delete it from the sent box of your mail account after you try the procedure above. And delete from your inbox any mail failure message related that refers to the term mail subsystem." Reboot. If this does not fix the problem, consider using an alternative email address to send the card.
