You will need to contact Yahoo support so they can help you out.
here is there number 1-800-318-0612

To prevent this from happening again always setup a back up email address or make sure you set up security answers. you can never lose those like you did with your phone that you no longer own.

SOURCE: I recently removed my computer (my user) password

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!

SOURCE: I can't get Outlook set up for my new ymail

my understanding is that you need to have yave yahoo plus to get this to work, yahoo plus is the paid version for you to have pop access which means be able to use an email client (like outlook) to retrieve yahoo mail there.
now if you have not paid for yahoo plus you can do the following:
1. switch your yahoo account to be localized to asia, which should also (for now) allow you to use pop access on a free yahoo account, you need to look around into the account options (Its under Account Info, Account Settings,Set Language Site and Time Zone or something like that)
2. once 1 has been completed go into yahoo and add your yahoo account, * for logon info use only your yahoo user name (not the * enter your correct password *for incoming email server: *for outgoing email server:
3. go into more settings>advance * incoming server port should be 110 *outgoing server port should be 587
good luck

I don't have my AppleID or password and cannot reactivate my phone

Use these steps after you enter your Apple ID on
  1. Enter your trusted phone number and choose Continue to send a notification to your trusted device.
  2. Wait for the notification to appear on your trusted device and tap Allow.
  3. Follow the steps to enter your device passcode and reset your password.
You can also reset your password from your trusted iOS device at any time:
  1. Go to Settings > iCloud.
  2. Tap your name.
  3. Tap Password & Security.
  4. Tap Change Password.
  5. Enter a new password.
If you don't have access to a trusted device, you can still reset your password and regain access to your account with account recovery. Account recovery is designed to get you back into your account as quickly as possible while denying access to anyone who might be pretending to be you. It might take a few days-or longer-depending on the account information you can provide to verify your identity.

The telephone number I had listed on my account for security purposes is not active any longer. How can I reset my password?

my wife did the same thing with her hotmail account, there was no other way that she could prove to them that she was who she was. she had to start another account.
they are interested in the security of your account & the only way is that they send you a secure temp pass word.
what you need to do is call your tech support & they will give you your options.

I lost a facebook reset code.

Good morning to you and Facebook.
Try again with Facebook snd ask them to send you a new password since your attempts until now have failed. If they keep being stubborn and refuse to give the passord, then you can open a new account.
But tell therm how important it is thatyou get into your excisting account.
Good luck

How can i recover my password of facebook?it is blocked because of changing my passwords frequently!! help me plzzzzzz......

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Once your account is locked you can reset your password and the email account associated with your Facebook account will receive email in which instructions will be mentioned to reset your password.

You can request a password reset by clicking the Forgot my password link located near the "Login" button on the log in page. We will then send you an email with a link to reset your password.

If you no longer have access to the email address you use to log in to your account, or you forgot what this email is, please refer to the option that says you no longer have access to email. You will be prompted for a phone number or security questions.

However, you will have to wait the 24 hour period it states before you can get into your account even after you change your password. It will not allow you access to it until then. When you try to log in, it will give you a counter at the top that tells how long you have left before you can do this.

I have forgotten my Gmail Password & the secondary Emal Id is defunct. How do i recovery or reset my gmail password

If you don't have an alternate email address, or if you no longer have access to that account, please try to reset your password again after 24 hours. At that point, you'll be able to reset your password by answering the security question you provided when you created your account. Google will send you a text message with a recovery code in it.
The password change process will also show you a link to use the text code.

Google uses the security question for account recovery only after an account has been idle for 24 hours. They do this to prevent someone else from taking over your account.
If you're unable to answer your security question or access your recovery email account, Google will send you a link to a form to get a new password.
