Wye i cont get my mail


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

Yahoo Log in error, "This Id is not yet taken" and error 5202


If you can not access your Yahoo Email and repeatedly getting error "This Id is not yet taken" and if you are trying to retrieve your user name and password an error 5202 says can not find your Id then try the following instructions.
Try switching your browser i-explorer to Mozilla Firefox or vice versa. If still the problem occurs, then, Download "Yahoo Messenger" and try signing in.
Once you successfully "sign-in" a message will pop-up in your "Notification Area (near CPU clock at bottom right hand corner)", saying
"You have XX new mail message(s)".Click on this message and you are in. Alternatively you can also click on the little "New Mail" icon appeared in the Notification Area.

If anyhow you have not received this message then ask your friend to send a new email to your blocked account. Providing you still "Signed In" in your yahoo messenger, you will soon get email and link to your Inbox as well. I hope this will take you out of your miserable time.

Thanks for reading.

I can't access my facebook account. and i have forgot my password on the yahoo email password i've used for my facebook. is there anyway i can recover it? please help me.


Hi,
In the Facebook login page, Select the forgot password link. Enter either your username or email id that you use to login or your phone number. If you have registered your phone, you would get your password as an text message. If you enter your email id you'll be taken to the next page asking for confirmation. In this page, your primary ID and an alternate ID would have been mentioned. If you have access to any of these, Submit the request. If not, select 'Don't have access to any of these?' below and enter a new email address. This should work
To recover your Yahoo account specify your Yahoo ID after selecting 'I can't access my account' from below the login page and they will send out a mail to the alternate mail id that you would have provided earlier. In case you forgot the Yahoo ID itself, you would have to mention the alternate email id you registered earlier and answer some security questions. In any case, you would have to remember the alternate email IDs. Once you recover your Yahoo ID,

Yahoo id not working


Firstly, visit "www.meebo.com, try log in and see whether it is successful or not, if successful means you or somebody else have not changed the password.

Alternatively, you can download yahoo messenger and try log in. After successfully log in it will show you a message at bottom right corner of your screen (near CPU clock), saying that you have xxxnumber of emails or click to go to your email.
If you have not get this message then ask your friend to send an email to your account. Within couple of minutes you will get this email and the dialog box make sure you are still loged on in Yahoo messenger. This is your link to get back to your mail. I hope you will find it useful.

Yahoo account is saying "this id is not yet taken"


I faced the same problem today. After brain storming and my experience I found a way back to my mail. You need to install yahoo messenger and try login, might take a couple of times. If log in is successful it will show you a message " ___ new mails" click on that and you are in.
To check whether your Account name has been taken or not, just click on Sign up at yahoo and put your account name in and check for the availability. It should show this account is not available.
Alternatively you can visit "meebo.com" and you can try login there, but you can not access your emails there, though you can chat with your friends even in your university.
