Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

1) email messages flicker across the bottom line of my in-box, then disappear. 2) every time I open my email, a user name and password are requested. I have no memory of ever having to use a password before - only I use the PC. This has only started happening this last day or so - any ideas ?

I have forgotten my email address how do I find 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.

I forgot my Pass word,I am locked out of Face book, Yahoo.com and Gmail.com


Start with Facebook Password
Suddenly you attempt to login to your Facebook profile.
Perhaps you have simply forgotten your password or worst case your Facebook account security has been compromised.

Having had this happen to me, I can help you reset your Facebook password and restore your peace of mind.

You will be back networking with your friends, family and coworkers in no time.
Go to your computer bring up the Facebook login screen like you normally would.

Do not fill in any information.

Click on the link above your Facebook user name and password that states forgot your password. This brings you to a different screen.

Fill in the email address associated or on file with your Facebook account.
If you cannot remember, keep trying different email addresses until you do.

Click enter and a Facebook reset link will be sent to your email so you can recover your password. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.

Check your spam email folder if the email does not appear in your inbox.

Click the link in your email and answer any security questions by Facebook.
This brings back to the Facebook website.

Reset your password with a phrase you will remember mixed in with 1 to 2 numbers or more. Record this in a notebook or on a safe place.

Use a different password than you would for your email.

This decreases your chances of having both websites compromised.
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.

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.
Reset My Gmail Password

Google introduced Gmail on April Fool's Day in 2004.
The company first gave out 1,000 accounts to Google employees, friends and family members to test out the new email system.

Now, Gmail is a common and popular email application for users around the world thanks to its ease of use, high capacity and wide range of functionality,

Sign in to your Gmail account with your user name and password.

Click "Settings" in the upper right-hand corner.

Click on "Account and Import," then click "Google Account Settings."
A new window will open.

Click "Change Password" under "Personal Settings."

Type your current password, then type your new password.
Type the new password again for confirmation.

Click "Save."

Which email account there are many ?

It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page.
Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

Reset aol password


AOL is a massive American internet service and multimedia company. One of the main services that AOL provides for its users is access to a user-friendly email server. This server can be used to send and receive emails to other accounts around the world. However, just like your keys, your wallet and the remote, passwords to email addresses can easily be lost. When this happens, you can go onto the Internet service and retrieve your lost AOL password without having the change it.

Go to aol.com. Find the login box on the main page. Click on the "forgot password" link, which is underneath the login box. Type in the user information that you do know. This will be your current email address as well as your name as it appears on the AOL billing information. Type in the last four digits of your billing credit card for further verification. Click on the "next" button at the bottom of the screen. Enter an alternative email address where you can retrieve your password. Press "submit." Retrieve your AOL password from the alternate email address you entered. How to Change an AOL Password
