JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

THen I get a message that either my ID or password XXXXX XXXXX

OSXpert :

okay, sounds like someone may have compromised your account -- where does the AOL portion of this issue come in?

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

Next screen says they can help and they show my ID [email protected] and ask security questions. I cannot correctly answer their security questions because there must be a real AOL account who has his answers. If you can give me a new password XXXXX the screen says @yahoo maybe that will work to re-establish my Yahoo account

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

You cannot email me the new password XXXXX I cannot get my email. Please type it or call me(NNN) NNN-NNNN

OSXpert :

I am not part of Yahoo -- JustAnswer is a global support site. All I can do is point you to the Yahoo support page here:

http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&page=topics&y=PROD_ACCT&topics=TOP_PASSWD

OSXpert :

I cannot reset your password XXXXX I am not actually affiliated with Yahoo

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

I cannot use yahoo support because they are not recognizing me. I have tried that.

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

I will try again with your link.

OSXpert :

Give it a shot, I need to step away from the computer for a minute. Please continue to post your results here

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :

However, you said that you emailed me a new password. Please type it in this message so I can try it before the AOL appears.

OSXpert :

I am not Yahoo -- I did not email you a password

OSXpert :

I do not have the ability to give you a new password. All I can do is help you deal with Yahoo support

JACUSTOMER-9d0pf5ru- :
