Question about Yahoo Mail
I have tried to change my password but it (yahoo.com) will not let me log in using my current password.
If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.
As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.
The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause
After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.
A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.
Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.
If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

hi thanks for using fixya!
Just make sure that you enter the correct username and password. And make sure that the internet connectivity is working properly.
If you still, cannot open, try to sign up for a new one.

Which browsers do you use? if you use IE to load your websites, you can recover yahoo mail password with Internet Explorer Password Unlocker; if you use outlook to receive mails, Outlook Password Unlocker can recover E-mail passwords instantly.

The .ph is an abbreviation for the Phillipines. This is done in most, if not all, foreign countries. For example in the United Kingdom you would get an email address of yahoo.com.uk. Hope this helps.
By the way, I sent a test email using just .yahoo.com to see if it still goes through. if it does, you can use just yahoo.com without any problems. Yahoo will continue to use .ph for accounts in the Phillipines.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Bruce, Windows Security does not have the ability to block and e-mail account. The real problem is, is that you just forgot what the password is.
Same thing you will get from your e-mail client like Outlook 2003 or 2007, if you can't provide the correct password.
Go to the login page of Ymail and use the link "I can't access my account". Answer the questions, follow the instructions, and provide an alternate e-mail address, and the password will be e-mailed to you.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your e-mail problem.
Thank you and good luck!
