  4. The next step depends on your recovery options -
  5. If you have set an alternate e-mail address, then you will be asked to type your alternate e-mail address. Upon typing the correct alternate e-mail address, you will be sent a reset-password link on your alternate e-mail address.

If you still cannot access your account, please get in touch with Yahoo Customer Service through the contact form below:

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/general-01.html

If that fails, you will need to send an e-mail from another e-mail account that you currently have access to, to the following e-mail address (copy/paste it so that you don't leave anything out!):


account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.com

In the subject you can just put Password
Let them know the last time that you were able to access your account. Wait about five minutes, and you should get an e-mail back from Yahoo! that you need to fill out completely and Reply back with the answers. Again, it will take up to 48 hours for them to get back to you, asking for more information including :
  • Yahoo! ID
  • Your name
  • Date of birth (mm-dd-yyyy)
  • Your alternate email address
  • Secret Question and Answer
  • Your city and state
  • ZIP Code or Postal code you entered during registration
  • Your country
Please be patient. It may be several days or longer before you get a response from Yahoo.

If you are not able to fix the problem with the Yahoo sign in problems page or waiting a reasonable amount of time for an email response then you can try calling the Yahoo client services number at 1.866.562.7219, 1.408-349-3301,(NNN) NNN-NNNN or(NNN) NNN-NNNN The process will take longer over the phone than by using the link above. You may be asked for personal information such as faxing Yahoo a copy of your drivers license to prove your identity. Even though it takes longer, Yahoo should be able to help you regain control of your e-mail account.

You can you also do a live chat with yahoo during regular business hours, click the following link for details>> yahoo chat support the chat option is just below the yellow box.

I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand that following the above steps is the only way to get your account back...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please click "Accept” so I am paid for my time. I am only paid if you click “Accept”.

(Even if you are a subscription or trial member you must click "Accept" for me to be paid.)

If my answer did not work please let me know instead of giving negative feedback.

A Bonus and Positive Feed Back is appreciated.

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
