    Invalid ID or Password Message

    this signals that you've entered a password and Yahoo ID combination that doesn't match what's on record.

    If your password contains numbers or letters, make sure that yourcaps lockornumber lockkeys are activated as needed.
    Case-sensitive passwords are often entered incorrectly due to key stroke sensitivity.

    and we'll only let you reclaim an account if you can prove you're the rightful owner.
    When you register for an account,it's up to you to provide the most up-to-date and valid recovery info.

    I have used 3 times my verification code to change password. So I can not sign in my ymail account.


    As you are not able to receive the verification code, it is recommended to check if the mobile number you have entered is correct. If you think it is correct, the next thing you can do is to contact your mobile carrier and see if they have blocked any message sent to you by Yahoo.

    If the issue still persists, the other option you have at hand is to ask Yahoo to send you the security code on your alternate email address that you may have mentioned in your Yahoo profile. The following link can be useful:
    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/troubleshooting-options-sln3139.html

    If you are not able to receive code on your alternate email address too, you may need to answer the secret questions associated with your Yahoo account. To know how to do this, the following link can be helpful:

    Need to change phone number on this account


    Log Into My Ymail Account

    "Ymail," a division of Yahoo!, is not the same as the Yahoo! email service.
    The main different revolves around the URL at the end of your email address.

    Instead of "@yahoo.com" these addresses are written as "@ymail.com."
    This slight variation might confuse you about how to log into your Ymail account.

    The login instructions are similar to that of Yahoo! mail. Additionally, you can recover your ID or password if you have forgotten it.

    Visit the Yahoo! login page by typing "ymail.com" into the URL bar.
    This takes you to both the Yahoo! email sign in and the Ymail sign in.

    Type your username into the "Yahoo! ID" box.
    This is the part of your email address that comes before "@ymail.com."

    Type in your password.
    If your password doesn't work, or you don't remember it, choose the blue "I Can't Access My Account" from the bottom of the sign in box.

    Choose the option that describes your situation best. Options include: "I Forgot My Password", "My Password Doesn't Work", "I Forgot My Yahoo! ID" and "My Account May Have Been Compromised". Press "Next."

    Follow the on-screen directions to set a new password or recover your ID.

    Change a Yahoo Mobile Number

    When you log out of your Yahoo Messenger account, messages and alerts automatically go to your mobile phone number if it is associated with your account.

    You can change your Yahoo Mobile phone number if you have a new number or want to switch to a different device.

    New messages and alerts will be sent to the new number you designate after the change. Changes you make to the number take effect immediately.

    Click the "Start" button on your computer and hover over "All Programs."
    Click "Yahoo Messenger" to open the program.


    Log into your Yahoo account with your ID and password.
    Click "Messenger" in the top menu and then click "Preferences."


    Click "Edit Mobile Phone" to view the mobile settings for your Yahoo account.
    Click "Delete" next to "Messenger Phone" and select "Remove Alerts for This Device."

    Click "Delete Device" and the phone number will be removed from your Yahoo Mobile account.
    Click "Add Alerts Device" and advance to the next step.


    Enter your 10-digit mobile phone number in the indicated field. Select your mobile service provider from the drop-down list and continue to the next step.

    A text message with a confirmation code will be sent to your mobile phone. Enter the confirmation code from the text message in the field indicated on Yahoo.

    Click "Confirm" to add the new number to your Yahoo Mobile account.

    Lost my password to yahoo messanger


    Your Yahoo! Messenger password is usually the same as the password for your Yahoo! account.

    (1) If you know your Yahoo! account ID and password, just enter that in Yahoo! Messenger. On the Messenger screen, clear the boxes for ID and password, then re-enter your Yahoo ID and password, then click "Sign on".

    (2) If you don't know your Yahoo! account password, you will need to reset it.
    Go to the Yahoo password page:
    https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot/
    and follow the prompts. Yahoo will send an email to reset your password.

    After you have reset the password, then enter the new password in Yahoo! Messenger, and sign in.

    Access your E-mail account from a different computer and then try sending the email to your friends. Your computer is probably infected by an automatic E-mail sending virus/malware. Update your anti-virus software and then do a FULL virus scan of your computer. If you don't have an anti-virus software, you should get one. You can get some for free or free trial. Avast and AVG are highly recommended.

    I have some hack or virus that is sending emails from my yahoo account to my contacts with a link to a canadian company selling viagra and cialis, etc.. I want to stop this from happening...


    Recently spam hackers have been hijacking Email accounts to use for their own dirty deeds and scams. The best thing to do is to deactivate your Yahoo account and make a new one.

    Click here to go to the Yahoo compromisation web site and follow the instructions to disable your account.

    The reason deleting the account is because these spam hackers are sending unwanted advertising to all your contacts claiming to be you. As far as you know they might even be sending emails to all your contacts asking for money.
    There was a recent scam where spam hackers hijacked this lady's account and sent a message to all her contacts that she was stuck in Namibia and needed money to be sent to a specified account to get home.

    To stop it, delete your email account, or if you are able to regain access, change your password to something a little more complex and define for yourself a few security questions only you would know. Another thing is just to contact all the people you had in your contacts and tell them that you account has been compromised and that they must ignore any emails received from it.
