Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

I'm trying to access an email address that does not seem to be already taken..help!!

I am trying to secure the email address: kerrylindsay@yahoo.com Sometimes it tells me it is available and when I send an email to that address it comes back as: This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason: Your message was not delivered because the destination computer refused to accept it (the error message is reproduced below). This type of error is usually due to a mis-configured account or mail delivery system on the destination computer; however, it could be caused by your message since some mail systems refuse messages with invalid header information, or if they are too large. Your message was rejected by f.mx.mail.yahoo.com for the following reason: delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a yahoo.com account (kerrylindsay@yahoo.com) [-5] - mta328.mail.mud.yahoo.com The following recipients did not receive this message: <kerrylindsay@yahoo.com> Please reply to <Postmaster@mx.bigpond.com> if you feel this message to be in error. Is there any way I can secure this email address? Many thanks Kerry Lindsay

If someone registered with it before but hasn't used it for a while, yahoo disables that account and bounces back all emails sent there.

    Unfortunately yahoo email keps it reserved for the member if they ever sign back on. They only way I could think off that you could get it is if you would guess the password or secret answer to password recovery. Good luck.

Confirmation code account


You need to access first the email address associated with your TAGGED account. If it's a Yahoo account and that Yahoo account has been inactive, you need to secure it back. If already deleted, you need to recreate it. Works best if the username has not been taken.

I cannot access my mail


Ymail is part of Yahoo Mail. In order to provide users with more combinations for email addresses, Yahoo introduced another email extension called Ymail. Ymail accounts look like samplemail@ymail.com. Ymail allows users whose desired email address was already taken to create their desired address and still have all the same features as Yahoo Mail. Accessing a Ymail account is quick and easy and can be done from any web browser.


1. Create a Ymail account, if you don't already have one. Open a browser window and type "http://mail.yahoo.com" and click "Sign Up" under "Don't Have a Yahoo ID?" section.
Fill in the appropriate information in each blank in section 1. This section is for your name, gender, birthday and location.
In section 2, choose a Yahoo ID/email address. In the drop down box beside the email address text box, choose "ymail.com." Press "Check" to see if the email address is available. If it's not available for use, choose another address, but keep the "ymail.com" domain the same.
Choose two security questions in section 3. This are necessary in case you forget your password. The alternate email address is optional.
Type in the security code at the bottom of the screen and press "Create My Account."

2. Open a browser window and type "http://mail.yahoo.com" to access the Ymail login screen.

3.Type your full email address in the "YahooID" box. Be sure to include the "@ymail.com" or the address will not be recognized. Using the full address distinguishes Ymail accounts from Yahoo or Rocketmail accounts.

4. Type your password in the "Password" box. Your password is case sensitive. Press "I Can't Access My Account" if you've forgotten your password. You can either have the password sent to another email address or change it altogether after answering the security questions you set up during the account creation process.

5. Press "Sign In" to access the Ymail account.

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:

Yahoo! AU/NZ contact info = . These are possibilities:

I dont know how to set up an e-mail address and would like help


You can get a free online account from places like www.gmail.com or www.mail.yahoo.com. With an online account you will be able to access your email from any computer with internet access. Just pick an email address, anything of your choosing but it may take a few tries to find something that hasn't been taken already. And set your password. That's all there is to it!

My yahoo mail e-mail address will not accept my password. The security question asked is not a question for which I have been asked to give an answer. Do I need to select a new password? My e-mail...


if you still didn't find the help you need...

do you remember your alternate email address to canddgilmer@yahoo.com?
if so then click on this link and follow the steps...
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?stage=fe100&src=ym&intl=us&done=http://mail.yahoo.com&partner=
after you are done then go and check your alternate email address for the password reset link...

if you don't remember the alternate email address then check the "
I can't access any of the above"
to direct you to the secret questions.
answer then and then you can be able to make a new password!
and then you can have full access to your email again!
if nothing works and you need farther help...
you can email me at lildabbas@yahoo.com
and if i was you, i would ask fixya.com to remove this question...because it has your email address in it...which gives hackers a better access to your email!!
Good Luck!!!
