https://www.paypal.com/ (if you click this or another link in this message, you may want to hold down the shift key while clicking it to open a new tab or browser while keeping this page open.

2. Click the "problem with login" hyperlink (blue text) below the yellow "log-in" button on the left side of the screen, or click the following link:
https://paypal.com/cgi-bin\webscr?cmd=_account-recovery&from=PayPal

3. You should be directed to a screen with the following text:

Can't log in?At the bottom of the selection area there should be a radio button next to the text "I don't know either one" select this option.

4. three fill-in text fields will appear in which you can enter up to three email addresses that you may have used to create your account. If you cannot recall any possible email addresses or user ID's you may have used, then you will have to create a new account. If you have funds in this account, you may want to contact customer support at the following link:

I hope that this information was helpful. Please feel free to direct any other concerns or problems to fixYa.com.

Why cant I get into my account


Bill
I know what you mean. I would go to sign in, then
  • write the e-mail address in the line.
I assume that you have forgotten your password so click on forgotten my password.

  • you write your e- mail adress again
  • look in the post and the password is there
  • go to sign in again and write your e- mail and the new password and
  • you have come to your account

Forgot my email password at yahoo.com but remember my secret question if ask


Click Forgotten Password and either choose the Secret Question or Send Password Reset Link to Alternate E-Mail Address options to reset your password.

Further information might be required from you than just the answer to the Secret Question, in order to proetct the integrity of the Mail Account. In the event that you cannot negotiate the full set of Security hurdles, then you might be directed to an e-mail channel to contact Yahoo mail Support. If you cannot satisfy Yahoo Mail Support that you are the Authorized User of the mail Account, then the account in question is likely to be blocked and you will be unlikely to ever have access to it again unless you can somehow remember the forgotten password.

If access to the original Mail Account ultimately proves impossible, then consider setting up a new Yahoo mail Account with a dissimilar enough E-mail Address to avoid confusion with the original one and then notify as many of your contacts as possible for whom you have e-mail addresses, of your change of e-mail addresses and also ask them to help you by forwarding your new e-mail address to any mutual contacts for whom they have the e-mail addresses that you do not.

I forgot my password on my yahoo mail


Hi penlih

FORGOTTEN YAHOO MAIL ACCOUNT PASSWORD

When you set up an e-mail account with free public e-mail services such as Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail/Live or Gmail, you are invited during the setup procedure to enter an Alternat(iv)e E-Mail Address. The purpose of this is to provide an address to which the Support Team of the E-mail Service Provider can send a link or code (or both) to enable users who have forgotten their passwords to reset their passwords.

Go to the Log In/Sign In page of the e-mail account you are having problems with and click on "Forgotten Password". Enter your alternative e-mail address and then submit a Password reset request. You may also be asked some security questions in order to verify you as the account holder. Once you have accessed and opened the Yahoo! Mail e-mail sent to the alternative e-mail address, click on the link inside and you will be allowed to reset your password.

To avoid mistyped password errors, this time, before you enter the new password, type it into a text or e-mail and then copy and paste that into the password box before submitting it. Send the text or e-mail containing the password to yourself or to your other, functioning e-mail address and save this e-mail in a discreet folder on your cellphone.

Unfortunately if, for any reason, you are unable to access the alternative e-mail address or accurately answer all the security questions, then you will never be allowed access that account again, unless you can remember and enter the correct Username, Password and Security Question.

In that event, however, there is nothing to stop you opening another Gmail account. Only the Username/E-Mail Address will have to be different.

I hope this helps.

I HAVE FORGET MY SECRETE QUESTION


Hi...........


Hello................


Problem with the yahoo mail?????????


  • I believe this will only work if you have an alternate email address, when you had setup your account with yahoo. Go to Yahoo! Help Central and at the bottom it should show Contact Customer Care. You need to have a back up email addresss so you can contact them. That's where you would go if you needed to contact them for any reason, and they really do email you it took my a couple of days before i could get me a new password, because i had to reason with them.
  • depends on the site. most have some type of profile that you can edit. since you can login just find and update your profile.


good luck n enjoy.......

It would not let me use my old e-mail address to use my password. Would not let me sign in


Hi


You do not say which Operating System you are using, so my answer will be based on Windows systems. If you have non-Windows Operating System, you should still be able to follow the explanation.


If you have Yahoo Mail account and you are unable to access it, and then click Forgotten Password, Forgotten Username or Forgotten Username and Password (as appropriate) on the Login Page and then answer a series of Security Questions to prove you are the Authorised Account Holder. After this, Yahoo Support should allow you to Reset your Password and/or Username.


It is useful when setting up this type of E-mail account, to include, in the registration details, an Alternative E-mail Address to which Forgotten Passwords can be sent, after security screening. If you don't have an Alternative E-mail Address, set one up at the same time, or as soon as possible afterwards.


If you are unable to provide all the necessary Security Answers, it is possible that Yahoo Security will block all access to the account.


If it proves impossible to access the original account, open a new one and then e-mail all your essential and important Contacts to inform them of the new address. It may seem a difficult wrench to let go of an old e-mail address and the fear might persist that you will miss some e-mails that go astray but persevere anyway. People do this all the time when changing jobs. Most important or urgent information will find its way to you, by other means, if you fail to respond to an e-mail sent to a redundant address.


Save your E-mail Usernames and Passwords in a cryptic way by sending yourself a Cellphone SMS message containing them hidden in a long list of random letters and numbers.


Save your E-Mail Contacts on your computer, in the Contacts Folder in:


(My) Computer > Local C: > Documents and Settings > Contacts.


I hope this helps.
