Okay, thers somethign you need to know about the Yahoo FREE Email accounts.

.

The first thing is.....Yahoo has probably billions of these accounts......remember they are FREE, and you can open as many as you want.....which leads to the people of earth racking up probably billions upon billions of these accounts on Yahoo.

.

With THAT MANY ACCOUNTS.....yahoo decided they are NOT going to offer ANY live support for them.

If you get locked out, or somehtign liek that......they just say...open a new account.

.

If they took phone calls form the billions of account holders......they would NOT be able to offer them for free.

.

So, the ONLY account options you have.....are automated.

The only help you will get for a FREE yahoo Email account, is the automated Web support.

If you cant figure it out, or you get locked out and cant remember the account information to reset it......you are locked out.

Your only option....open a new account.

.

Hey i don tlike it either......but this is written out in the terms of service you agreed to when you FIRST created the Yahoo Free account.

called the fine print.....that most folks DONT read......and thats understandable......but this happens more often that you think.
