Hi, well i have had this myself, not with yahoo though, but I imagine they are all more or less the same?
Anyway, it appears that if you haven't used an account for a certain period of time, then it, simply gets deleted or locked out, most often, there is NO way to recover it.
The ONLY shot you may have would be to contact, Yahoo and explain what has happened, if it is possible, then they will reinstate your account and password.
If that happens you will have to make another account, and seeing as the OLD one doesn't exist any more, you may even be able to use all the same information as you did before. In any event I advice you to contact yahoo, they usually are very prompt and helpful.

I forgot my password and i don't have an option to answer security questions, or to re send my password to an alternate email, or mobile phone number.


If you forget your Yahoo password:

click this link : https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot ....you will be asked for an alternative email address
to which a reset link will be sent.If you don't have an alternative email you will be asked the 2 secret Q's to which you must answer"old accounts may only have 1"you will then be asked for a new password and thats it.

Also:
You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday
  • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
  • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.

If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account.

My email address disapeared from my screen.


Now which email account was it ????

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.

Cannot open att yahoo


hi this is very simple
step 1.check whether the user id and password that u have typed is correct and make sure that CAPS LOCK is not on when u are typing ur user id and password but if ur user id and password is in CAPS LOCK then make sure that ur CAPS LOCK is on.
step 2.if u have checked this and nothing works simply click on forgot password and ask them to send a new password to another email address for e.x.gmail.com and after receiving the new password simply copy and paste the password in ur yahoo password tab and login this will work for sure and after loging in u can reset ur old password by clicking on the settings tab and paste the current password u received and type ur old password in the new password tab and retype it again and save ur profile
NOTE:possible reasons may be because of the server speed sometimes due to congestion of the networks ur server speed becomes slow and u may not able to log in to ur account or may be ur account may be lapsed for u may have not used it for months or year but its only conditional

I cannot sign with old or new password.


When you access mail.yahoo.com, select I can't access my account.

Then select my password does not work. Then enter your yahoo ID and enter the code in the box. If you have a secondary email address it will send your password there.

Then, it will ask you for your 2 secret questions. Once you were able to answer both secret questions, it will prompt you to change your password.

I hope this helps.
