Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

Yahoo email page only partially opens & then stops loading, locks

We have two yahoo email accounts in our household, have had both of them for a long time, one for several years and the other maybe a couple of years. One we can access and the other one we can't. We use them frequently and haven't forgotten the user name or password for either. The one that we can't access starts to open the page, and I can see where it says "Hi, Johnny" and the top half of the page, but the email folders, "Inbox", etc., do not appear. I use the Windows Task Manager to see what's going on and it says "Yahoo Mail" and under the status it says "Not Responding". So, after the Yahoo mail opens just so far, it more or less just locks up. As I said, we can access our other Yahoo email just fine, and there are no other problems going on with the computer that we know of or have noticed. I'll post the Yahoo email account that works so that I can receive any solutions. Help.... Thanks.

Forgot my yahoo.mail confirmation code to access my facebook account


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Fix Facebook If You Get Locked Out

It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button.
Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.

Ymail create id


Ymail is a subsidiary email client under the Yahoo domain. Ymail provides free, open source Web mail services for Internet users.
Created as a partner to Yahoo RocketMail, Ymail was implemented to help triple the size of the existing Yahoo emailing server, which already has more than 200 million users.
Making a Ymail ID requires the creation of a Ymail email address directly through Yahoo.
Access the Yahoo Account Registration page at yahoo.com (see Bottom of page).
Type your first name and last name in the proper data fields at the top of the Yahoo Account Registration page.

Click the "Gender" drop-down bar and select "Male" or "Female."
Click the "Birthday" drop-down bar and provide the month of your birthday.
Then, enter the day and year for your birthday in the applicable data fields.
Enter your five-digit postal code in the data field directly below the drop-down bar for your country.
Type a unique name in the Yahoo! ID and email text field.
Then, click the "yahoo.com" drop-down bar, and change the setting to "Ymail.com."

Click "Check" to verify that your desired Ymail ID is available.
(If the Ymail ID is not available, alternatives will be generated, but you can also manually change the ID until you find one that is available.)

Create a password for the Ymail ID account and email account.
Then, re-type the password in the corresponding data field for verification.

Provide an alternative email address for account safety and security purposes.
Click one of the security questions in the corresponding drop-down bar.
Then, provide an answer to the question as an alternative method to verify your account or retrieve your account password.
(An alternative email address and security questions are not mandatory but can be beneficial if you ever lose or forget your Ymail account password.)

Enter the characters in the security code box below the registration data fields.
Click the "Create My Account" button at the bottom of the registration page.
The site will redirect to the new Ymail ID account page.

Create A Yahoo Email Address
Yahoo offers free email accounts with add-ons such as a calendar, notepad and an automatic organizer.
Your Yahoo account is Web-based, so you can access your messages anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Once you complete the simple one-page registration form, you will also have access to all of Yahoo's features.
You can use your new email address to sign into Flickr, Yahoo Answers, Messenger and a variety of games and fantasy sports leagues.

Click the "Sign Up" link that appears below the "Sign In" option on the Yahoo homepage to create a new account.
Enter your name, gender, address and birth date on the appropriate lines.
Choose your Yahoo username.
Your username will also be your email address. Make sure "Yahoo.com" is selected from the drop-down list next to the email address.
Click the "Check" button to see if your desired email address is available.
Enter your desired password on both of the required lines.
The password must be typed exactly the same on both lines.
You will see a "Password Strength" bar indicating how difficult your password will be for a hacker to guess.
Select a "secret question" from the drop-down menu.
Yahoo will use this question to verify your identity if you lose your password.
Enter the answer to the question you chose from the menu.
Repeat this process to choose your second "secret question" and answer.
There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.
Enter the letters and numbers displayed in the image on the screen into the "image verification" line.
This proves that you are a human and not an automated script designed to open new Yahoo accounts.
Click the "Create My Account" button when you are finished completing all of the input boxes. You will then see your account details displayed on the screen.
You can print this page for your records, if needed.
Click "Continue" to proceed to your new email account.

Can't access my YAHOO email, even though connected to INTERNET !!!


Many times, you can recover a hacked or compromised Yahoo! account after using on-site password-recovery tools.
The process can take a few minutes to complete, but once you are finished you'll be back in your account.
If the password-recovery method does not work, then you can always contact the security group at Yahoo! Inc. via email.
Of course, you'll need access to a secondary email address to message the company's support team.

Type "login.yahoo.com" into the browser's URL address field.
You are greeted by the Yahoo! account sign in page.
Click the "I can't access my account" link in the box on the right side.
Select the "My account may have been compromised" option from the choice of sign in problems.
Click the "Next" button.
Type your Yahoo! ID and security code on the next page.
Click "Next" to continue.
Select an alternative email address to send a reset link to.
This only works if you previously added a secondary email address.
If not or the alternative email address has been tampered with, then select the "I can't access any of the above" option.
Click "Next."
Answer the security questions on the next few pages.
You will usually have to answer at least two security questions.
Enter a new password and repeat the password when prompted.
Click the "Next" button to finalize the password-reset process.

Yahoo Messenger Has Been Locked

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users.
But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations.
You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more.
When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked. Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution.
The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account.
Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked.
Unlocking Accounts
To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.
When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page.
Leave your My Yahoo page open.
Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger.
If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care.
Current Versions
"Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger.
Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software.
Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger.
To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu.
Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version.

Other Sign-in Issues
When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage.
If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings.
The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings.

Delete yahoo account


If you wish to delete your entire Yahoo! account (including Mail, Messenger, profile, other Yahoo! services), go to the "Delete user" page, and follow the instructions:
https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_user

Please note that's a permanent and complete deletion, which removes all aspects of a Yahoo user account.

See also this Yahoo! help page:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/account/account-11.html

-------------------------------
If you simply wish to close the Yahoo! Mail account (but without deleting other Yahoo! services), you should simply stop using the account. Yahoo! deactivates email accounts which are not used for 120 days. (You may later reactivate the Yahoo! Mail account if you wish, although you cannot restore old email messages.)

My yahoo account has been locked How can i open please help me?


This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.

The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.

If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

To reset your password, or for further help, visit the following page:
