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.

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.

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.

I forgot my password and dont remember my answer to the security question. HELP


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.

When you request a new password, need technical support, or have questions about your billing, Yahoo! usually asks you for your Secret Question for verification that you are who you say you are.
To protect your account from unauthorized access, Yahoo! must be able to confirm your identify. You can confirm your identity in one of the following ways:
  • Answer your Secret Question (also referred to as a Security Question)
  • Provide a valid alternate email address or mobile phone associated with your account (if you no longer have access to that email address or phone number, it's not valid)
If you can't sign in but have provided an alternate email address or phone number, you won't need to verify your Security Question. Go to the Sign-in Problems page for help logging in to your account.
If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.
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. To add or edit an alternate email address or mobile phone, go to your ACCOUNT INFO: Manage your email addresses page.
