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.

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.

To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.

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.

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.

Other Sign-in Issues

How can i unlock my yahoo messenger account?


It seems some problem with your account.

I would suggest go to
http://mail.yahoo.com
Try to sign in and see what happens.

If you are able to sign in on the website and you can access your email box. It is clear that your account is fine.

If you are unable to sign in on the mail website and it gives the same error. Then just wait for 24 hours, it will be unlocked.
It is not your fault some time people try to break in to your account and account is locked due to security reasons.

I hope this helps you : ) vote for me
