Hi, Just do one thing, While entering the username/password in yahoo login, when the user press the enter key or click on the Submit button, The browser asks for Remember Password option. When the browser asks it, Click on the Save Password and from then onwards, the login form will be automatically filled and you just need to press the enter key to login into your yahoo account.

My account has been locked due to not using please help me for opening my yahoo account. remember, i forget the security questions also. and the id is, sashi_dia @yahoo.com


I guess, you account isn't locked yet, but you've forgotten the login password. I am sorry if I am wrong. Well, you can still recover or reset your password. Your security question is "What town was your father born in?", hopefully you can still remember the answer. Open Yahoo!Mail, click "I can't access my account" (at the bottom of the login box). Now, on the password recovery page, select "My Password Doesn't Work" and click "Next", enter your Yahoo ID and the security code in the respective boxes, click "Next", again on the next page, select "I can't access any of the above" but if you still remember the alternate email, enter it. If I am not wrong, your alternate email is a hotmail.com email address... click "Next" and you'll be given options to reset your password. If you do this very carefully, you'll definitely get your account back. I hope you haven't tried multiple times to login which would automatically rejects login attempts within specific period.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I can not open my mail box my Email Address; tomsoom@yahoo.com


1) If you haven't visited your yahoo account for several months I might have been deactivated and all messages might be deleted. You can only reactive now and start from zero again.
2) If the password isn't accepted - you might have forgot it, so just click "I can't access my account" right below the login form.
3) Try different browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, maybe the browser is just out of date and doesn't support some modern login features.
P.S. I just checked yahoo.com and I can access my own mail, so yahoo isn't shut down.

Yahoo Mail and the URL that you have provided is just the same

"https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?&.src=ym" - this URL is a link where you can access your Yahoo Mail. You may enter your user name and password. Then click on login.

Just login to it, and you will see your Yahoo e-mail.

Thank you!

I have my yahoo account set up on Outlook 2010. I can receive mail but after a day or two it starts asking for my password. If I go to yahoo mail log out and login it starts working in Outlook again. Is...


2 reasons as far as i know

1. If you recieve an email with attachment ( more than 3-4 MB ) Outlook may not download as the file size is too big
2. Any mail with attachment and has Virus/spyware linked to it, Outlook will disconnect.

Work around solution is, If you are using Antivirus which has Email filtering, Disable this option from the Antivirus program or Turn it off for time being till you download all the mails from Yahoo to Outlook and turn it on

Another reason is, at times yahoo login ( website ) ask you for verification code, ( this could be for several reasons like, someone trying to access your email account with wrong password, it will prompt for verification code )
If your login page is asking for verification code, and you are trying to download the mails from yahoo to outlook, you will get a username/password screen on Outlook, this is when you login to yahoo webpage and logout.

I have not been able to open the yahoo.com site at all


There are several problems that could cause you not to be able to login to your Yahoo email account. Each will be discussed below.

PHISHING or HACKING

First, have you replied to any emails that requested your Yahoo email login information? If so, your password may have been changed by someone else. If you listed an alternate email address when you signed up for Yahoo? If so, on the Yahoo sign in page you can click on 'Forgot Password' and an email can be sent to your alternate email address that will allow you to set a new password. Or - you can answer the security questions to gain access to your Yahoo account as well.

PROBLEMS WITH YAHOO MAIL AUTOMATIC SECURITY

Yahoo security programs will result in you not being able to log into your Yahoo email account. Yahoo has several security features which cause many problems.

If you know that the problem is not caused by entering an incorrect user name or password, there is a work-around to get into Yahoo mail. And, it takes less than 5 minutes to set it up. However, you must use the Firefox browser to do so.

(Note: Every time I've recommended this solution to anyone for their Yahoo Mail problem, it's worked.)

The easiest way to sign into your Yahoo email account is to use Firefox as your browser and download the Webmail notifier add-on for Firefox.

With the click of a mouse, you'll be sent directly to your Yahoo email page without having to manually sign in to Yahoo mail and it will bypass Yahoo's security features that cause login problems.

Click here to download Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

ADDING EMAIL NOTIFIER TO FIREFOX:

To add Webmail Notifier to your Firefox toolbar click here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

1) After downloading Webmail notifier and re-starting Firefox, right click in an empty area on your TOP toolbar in Firefox and select, 'Customize.' (A window with icons will open.)

2) Locate the icon of a small envelope. (This is the Webmail notifier icon.) Then, drag the 'envelope icon' to your upper toolbar and click, 'Done'.

3) Once the envelope has been placed on the top toolbar in the Firefox browser, right click on the envelope icon and choose, 'Options'. (A window will open.)

4) Select, Yahoo from the drop down menu.

5) Type in your full Yahoo email address in the 'User Name' box. (ie.: my_name@yahoo.com)

6) Type in your Yahoo mail PASSWORD in the password box.

7) Click, 'Add'

8) Make sure 'Enable Login' is checked that the bottom of the box.

9) Click, 'OK'.

Now, when you want to go to your Yahoo email just click on the little envelope icon and you'll be sent straight to your email page in Yahoo. You will never need to login to yahoo again.

Tip: The envelope icon will remain gray when you don't have any unread emails in your Yahoo mail 'In Box', but will turn yellow when you do have new emails.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thanks!
