Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

Appleologist :

Before we get started, I have a few additional questions. Does this pop up only occur in mail? Did you change your password XXXXX?

Customer:

not just in mail and i believe a friend tried to change my mail from yahoo to G-mail

Appleologist :

So are you no longer using yahoo or are you using both?

Customer:

i haven't tried g-mail and yahoo first asks for the keychain password XXXXX i do not know

Appleologist :

Ok. We can reset that. It is asking for the password XXXXX Yahoo. Did you forget your yahoo password?

Customer:

i tried entering my password XXXXX it would not accept it so, i changed it with the same result i think, should i retry now?

Appleologist :
