Hi Frances,

Usually email providers have a method to recover an email address that can no longer be accessed by the owner. If you have a web email provider or a 3rd party email provider like gmail, hotmail, yahoo - you can simply click "forgotten password" or "forgotten username" on the login page. If order for these to work though - you'll have had to have set up the account with security questions or alternate email addresses for the info to be sent to you to view. If you did not do either, you will have to try guessing the password or username or contact the provider's support people. Ultimately, if you can not provide proof that you own the email account I'm afraid your access to it will be lost.

If however your email is provided by your internet service provider (ISP) such as Comcast, Cox, ATT, Verizon, etc., you should be able to regain access to the email account by contacting the ISP's tech support people.

Good luck!

Want to reactivate my Hotmail account


see the links

Reactivate your account Now, in order to see if you can still reactivate that account, the only thing you can do is:
  • Go to Hotmail and try to login with it.
  • If you can, then you've got it back.
That's how Hotmail determines whether or not somebody really changes their mind when they've deactivated or abandoned an account. All you really have to do is log into it, using the web interface, and if it comes back, fantastic.
If the login fails If you can't (in other words, if the login fails), that means either of two things:
  • One, the account itself truly is deleted - and there is no email address of that name anymore;
  • Or it means that the email address was finally freed, so that it could be re-used by other people and somebody else took it.
Now, the only way to determine whether or not that's the case is to now:
  • Try and create a new Hotmail account with that old email address. If it works, you're back in business.
  • If it fails, I don't know of a way to get that email address back.
Like I said, it could very well have been reassigned to someone new who came along and chose that as their new email address on Hotmail.
Email recovery So, bottom line:
  • It's not related to whether or not you can login to hi5 at all. You cannot make any assumptions about that.
  • If you can login to your Hotmail account, great!
  • If you can't, try creating a new Hotmail account with the old email address. If you can, great!
  • If you can't, then in my opinion, you're out of luck.

Email no longer exists


Log in using the old email address and password and then go to Settings / General Account Settings and change the email address to the new one.

Your old email address doesn't need to be working, it is just a validation tool for use with a password.

Please don't tell me you have forgotten your password :>)

I need to change the email address for my Apple account.It requires me to log in but the old email address is no longer in service.


If Apple uses normal security procedures the fact that your old email account is inactive shouldn't matter to your login. Go ahead and login using the old email address and then change the email address. Apple will then send an email to your old email address to notify you that your email address has changed and that you should notify them if you did not request the change. You won't get that email, of course, but that doesn't matter because you DO want the change.

I have been locked out of my Facebook !i gave a mobile number, but i did not get the reaply back


When Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004, it defined its mission as "Giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected."
With the widespread success of this social networking website today more than 500 million regular users as of April 2011 it may meet that goal for many.
When a Facebook user can no longer access an account, it can be frustrating, but there is typically a reasonable explanation.
Cookies/Cache
Facebook suggests that any user who can't access their account should clear cookies and cache on their computer as a first step.
This will help remove old and unneeded files from your computer, and will sometimes help your computer to run faster, as well as allowing access to Facebook again.
Once cookies and cache have been cleared, you should type "m.facebook.com" into the address bar on your computer.
Avoid using any old bookmarks or links to visit Facebook for this first visit after clearing the cookies and cache.
Password Incorrect
If you attempt to log into your Facebook account with an incorrect password, you will be unable to access your account.
Even if you have the correct email address, that is only half of the log-in equation, and the correct password is absolutely necessary to log into the site.
If you may have entered the wrong password, enter it again, taking care to get each character correct.
Passwords are case sensitive, so all capital and lowercase letters and any symbols must be entered correctly.

If you have forgotten your password, you will need to click the "Forgot Your Password" link to recover your account and create a new password.
Account Closed
Facebook reserves the right to close accounts that they have determined are in violation of their terms of service.
If Facebook found that your account contained inappropriate content, did not represent a real person, or violated Facebook rules in some way, the account may be closed, leaving you unable to access it.
If your account was closed for one of these reasons, your login will fail and you will be provided with a link to Facebook's "Confirm Your Identity" page, where you can read about typical reasons for account closures.
Email Login Incorrect
If you have entered the incorrect email address, you will be unable to log into your Facebook account.
The email address that you use to log into Facebook is case sensitive, just as your email address is. If you fail to capitalize a letter or forget to insert an underscore that is part of the email address, login will fail.
If you cannot access your Facebook account due to an incorrect email address, double checking the address for correctness prior to logging in again will resolve the issue.
Compromised Account
If account information such as your email address or password is stolen, your account may be compromised.
If, for example, your account information is stolen, the person in possession of your log-in information can access your account and change the password so that you will no longer be able to get to your account.
If you think this may have happened, you must access the "Compromised Account" page on Facebook and follow steps to prove your identity and secure your account.

Can you send my email from my old email address maureentrant@ymail.com to my new email address moekitty3@yahoomail.com I know their is email in the old address nthat i need to read.Can you tanfer it to my...


Sorry we can't send your email from your old address to your new email address.

However, this is something you can do yourself very easily.

Login to your old email address using the same userid and password as you did in the past. Open the messages you want to keep then "Forward" the message to your new email account by entering your new address as the recipient.

If you can no longer access your old email account then you will need to contact the providers customer support department to gain access to your old account.

Need to set up new Email adress


The only way to do that is to create the new e-mail account and let everyone know. There are multiple ways to do this.

One is that you can forward all your mail from your old e-mail address to your new one.

Another is that you can check your old gmail account in your new one. This one is a little more advanced and is not recommended if you are not planning on still using the old e-mail address in the future.

Another idea is to forward your old e-mail and set an automatic vacation response that sends back to anyone that e-mails your old account a message with your new e-mail address for them to change in their records.

Changing to a new e-mail address is a drawn out process that takes longer the longer that you've had your e-mail address. The good thing about gmail is there extremely high quota, which allows plenty of time for you to start using your new e-mail address without missing out from your old e-mail.
