How do i re-activate my inactive yahoomail account.?


If you had asked your question to Yahoo Help, this is what you would have found: Reactivate a deleted Yahoo account Has your account been closed, and you'd like to use it again? There's a possibility you can reactivate it. Review the steps below.
  1. On a desktop or laptop computer, sign in to your Yahoo account.
  2. Confirm your Yahoo ID and complete the CAPTCHA verification.
  3. Select Reactivate.
It may take up to 24 hours for your request to process. Any lost account data, like emails and contacts, cannot be recovered.
Recovery is not possible if:
  • The account was deactivated due to a violation of the Terms.
  • The account was deleted due to inactivity (you must sign-in at least once every 12 months).

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


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.
24-Hour Wait

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.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

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.

My yahoo is lock over two week now


HI.....................

I believe I'm not the only one who received a weird message when trying to login into the Yahoo account. But when it says that my account was blocked for security reasons, it might be

something serious. You should know that if your account is suspended for this reason, you're not able to use any Yahoo product that requires authentication. However, we're all curios to know the reasons for the suspension and how long it will require until we are able to use the account. According to the Sunnyvale company Yahoo, every suspension of the account expires after 12 hours since it was started so all you need to do is to... wait. Quite a problem if we think that you might want to access very important information stored in your account.

What's more important is that the Yahoo account restriction can be applied when the parent company discovers that somebody, no matter it was you or other user, tried to login for multiple times but he typed a wrong password. Well, that should be a problem if we think that some users can abuse of this restriction and might exploit it just to lock somebody's account.

"If you receive a message stating that your account has been locked for security reasons, this means that there have been too many attempts to sign in to your account with the incorrect password. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to access it," Yahoo explains.

"The lock on your account will expire 12 hours after it was initially locked-the lockout period will not reset each time you attempt to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lock has expired. We are unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked."

Obviously, there's not much to do to avoid this problem so, if you encounter this suspension, please keep in mind that somebody tried to login into your account but he didn't guess the password.


HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL TO YOU......

GOOD LUCK...............
