SOURCE: Connecting to yahoo in general and my user ID/password

If the problem is with the browser, try downloading Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. I have Firefox and Yahoo Mail works much better and faster with it. If you try to change your password too many times, it will lock your mail account for a certain amount of time, so watch out. It doesn't sound like a problem with your particular mail account, it sounds like Internet Explorer just can't open the Yahoo site for whatever reason.

I changed my password due to the recent hack. When I try to access my account I'm questioned on an account I have not used in 2 years. How do I get to my Yahoo account to change my password again?


When you set up the account you were asked to provide a backup email in the event you forgot your user name or account password, without that you are stuck.

How do i change my yahoo password


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.

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

Change my yahoo password


Not being able to access your Yahoo! account is frustrating.
If someone has broken into your account and changed your password, or if you have forgot your password, you may be temporarily unable to access your Yahoo! account.

Fortunately, Yahoo! offers a solid password recovery process that allows you to retrieve your password and log in to your account within a few minutes.

Visit your Yahoo! log in page.
Beneath the sign in box, click "I Can't Access My Account."

Select "I Forgot My Password" and click "Next."
Type your Yahoo ID and complete the "Captcha" code.

Click "Next." If you cannot read the puzzle, click "Can't Read Code."
A new code will be automatically generated.

Choose the option to verify your identity.
If you signed up for Yahoo! cellular-password recovery, you'll see an option to receive a text message.

Click "Next" to have the text message sent.
Use the temporary password to log in to your Yahoo! account; then change your password immediately.

Answer your secret question if you are not signed up for Yahoo cellular-password recovery.
Click "Next."

Depending on your preferences, you may also have to select your date of birth and zip code.
After answering the question, you'll be able to create a new password and access your Yahoo! account.

Change my yahoo password


Forgot My Yahoo! ID & Password

Forgetting your Yahoo! password or ID can happen to anyone, Yahoo! has established procedures for you to retrieve both without having to create a new account.

The password and ID retrieval process is a short and simple one, but you must follow it exactly. The forgotten password process does not give you the password you created when signing up for the account, it gives you a new one, which you can change later.

Forgotten Password


To recover your Yahoo! account password, click on the "Sign In" link from the Yahoo! homepage, which will take you to the "Sign in to Yahoo!" page.

Follow the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button. Select the "I forgot my password" radio button on the next page and then click "Next."

Enter your Yahoo! ID and the code as it is shown and then click "Next."
From the following page, choose whether you want your password sent to the alternate email address or cellular phone number given when the account was created, and then click "Next."

An email is then sent to your alternate email address or cellular phone inviting you to reset your password.

Forgotten ID

From the Yahoo! homepage, follow the "Sign In" link located near the top of the page.
On the next page, click on the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.

On the next page, you must provide the alternate email address, birth date, country of residence and postal code given when the account was created.

When finished, click on the "Next" button and your ID will be emailed to your alternate email address.

Password Security Questions

If you do not have access to the alternate email address or cellphone number provided when the Yahoo! account was created, you must click the "I can't access any of the above" radio button on the "Please select an option to reset your password" page.

After clicking "Next," you must provide the answers to the security questions selected when the account was created before you are able to reset the account's password.

When All Else Fails

If the Yahoo! account password or ID retrieval methods don't work, you may want to create a new Yahoo! account.

This is done by following the "Sign Up" link at the top of the Yahoo! homepage, next to the "Sign In" link mentioned earlier.

If you choose to create a new account, be sure to remember the alternate email and cellular number you provide in case you find yourself in a similar situation down the road.
Yahoo Email Password

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.

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

Cannot access email account inspite of correct ID and password


This is a common problem. This happens when some Yahoo servers are updated. It could take 2 - 24 hours for this to be rectified. Don't worry. This has happened to me many times. I wish Yahoo posted a reassurance on its website.

On August 10, 2009, I went to change my password for wbb_scaepa@yahoo.com and was given two questions only I would know the answers to. I changed my password from ''elephant'' to inuyupik'' and typed in...


Hi Jerome,


I checked to see , ans I notived thar Stbeins yahho account Stebbins_ira (with email stebbins_ira@yahho.com) as the password "council". I don't know if this is because she changed it or (which I think happened ) never was changed.

What I also noticed in relation to your Yahoo account wbb_scaepa (with the email wbb_scaepa@yahoo.com) was that the password "inuyupi" is set, but the data on your ID account was of Stebbins Ira (greeting name, name, adress, ***, age, etc), not yours. Therefore, anyone accessing your account would think it was accessing Stebbins' account. That is fixed.

Now, I urge you both Jerome and Stebbins to CHANGE IMMEDIATELY YOUR PASSWORDS, since at this moment everybody knows them, and can access your account, view or send emails in your name or even get hold of your accounts by changing the passwords.
So, do it now.

After changing the password, Sebbins might have also to change the password for the email account in Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail or any other e-mail program she is using to access her email from her office.

If she is using Outlook Express or Windows Mial, for instance, she would have to open the email program, go to Tools/Accounts..., then Select the Yahoo account (stebbins_ira@yahho.com), click on Properties, tehn on Servers tab and change the password to the new password.
Then, she will be able to access the e-mail both through Yahoo pages (webmail) and through her office's email program.

So, once again, change immeddiately your password.
