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.

Yahoo Messenger Has Been Locked

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users.
But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations.
You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more.
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.
Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked.
Unlocking Accounts
To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password.
When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page.
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.
Current Versions
"Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger.
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.
Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version.

Other Sign-in Issues
When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage.
If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings.
The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings.

We have yahoo messenger 8 we cant get signed into it


If you have tried restarting your computer, signing in with your Yahoo e-mail prefix (without the @yahoo.com) and your e-mail password without sucess, and you are sure your caps aren't locked and your information is correct, Yahoo Messenger Help suggests the following:

Copied and pasted from Yahoo Messenger Help:

Why can't I connect with Yahoo! Messenger?

No go, eh? We're sorry to hear you're having problems connecting to our servers. Your Yahoo! Messenger connection information may be incorrect. Follow these steps to configure your connection:

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.

Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work (sorry), you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Use proxies" option.

Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
