Forgot My Yahoo! ID & Password

Forgetting your Yahoo! password or ID can happen to anyone, Yahoo! has established procedures for you to retrieve both without having to create a new account.

The password and ID retrieval process is a short and simple one, but you must follow it exactly. The forgotten password process does not give you the password you created when signing up for the account, it gives you a new one, which you can change later.

Forgotten Password


To recover your Yahoo! account password, click on the "Sign In" link from the Yahoo! homepage, which will take you to the "Sign in to Yahoo!" page.

Follow the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button. Select the "I forgot my password" radio button on the next page and then click "Next."

Enter your Yahoo! ID and the code as it is shown and then click "Next."
From the following page, choose whether you want your password sent to the alternate email address or cellular phone number given when the account was created, and then click "Next."

An email is then sent to your alternate email address or cellular phone inviting you to reset your password.

Forgotten ID

From the Yahoo! homepage, follow the "Sign In" link located near the top of the page.
On the next page, click on the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.

On the next page, you must provide the alternate email address, birth date, country of residence and postal code given when the account was created.

When finished, click on the "Next" button and your ID will be emailed to your alternate email address.

Password Security Questions

If you do not have access to the alternate email address or cellphone number provided when the Yahoo! account was created, you must click the "I can't access any of the above" radio button on the "Please select an option to reset your password" page.

After clicking "Next," you must provide the answers to the security questions selected when the account was created before you are able to reset the account's password.

When All Else Fails

If the Yahoo! account password or ID retrieval methods don't work, you may want to create a new Yahoo! account.

This is done by following the "Sign Up" link at the top of the Yahoo! homepage, next to the "Sign In" link mentioned earlier.

If you choose to create a new account, be sure to remember the alternate email and cellular number you provide in case you find yourself in a similar situation down the road.
Yahoo Email Password

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.

SOURCE: outlook express

0x800CCC78 SMTP_REJECTED_SENDER Unknown sender. This is caused by having the incorrect e-mail address in the Reply-To field.

You may have to authenticate in outlook express by putting in the SMTP server name of your internet provider instead of yahoo
for example
Incoming = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing = smtp.yourISPservername
Some isp's will not let you send out with a different smtp server than theirs.
It's why you can receive but not send.

As you have a new phone number, your can try to reset your Yahoo password by asking Yahoo to send you a password recovery mail on the alternate email ID you may have mentioned on your Yahoo profile. Alternatively, you can also recover your password by answering correctly the secret question you may have set while signing up on Yahoo.

To know more about how to execute the above alternatives, you can refer to the following Yahoo support page:

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:

I forget my yahoo mail id password but i remember answers of both security questions. i don't want to reset my password, i want to retrieve my old password, please help me.


You cannot retain the forgotten password because no one has the password but you. Since you have forgotten the password you can only be prompted to change the password to something else you can remember if you answer the security questions correctly .
