I can send u a copy of the death certicate
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Okay thank you. This may be difficult if you are unable to answer any of the security questions Yahoo will need before they will allow you access. Also, please be cautious about the information you post. I do not need the death certificate and neither will Yahoo. I will see if I can get the password ***** you so give me a few minutes please.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Yahoo needs the AT&T email address as well. Do you know what that is?

Do you have a monthly invoice from your internet provider?

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Okay no problem. Do you know if it is from AT&T?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do not know if magic jack is with AT&T
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

No magic jack has nothing to do with your provider since it uses the internet to connect with other phone services. Let me check a bit more.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The Internet over in republic was television association of republic
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Okay. I suspect it may be associated with AT&T since they absorbed all of the Yahoo email accounts. Once you get back home, check the account number on the invoice. You will most likely need that when you contact support. You can contact AT&T support at(###) ###-#### I have tried all combinations of your husbands email address to access the account and still do not have all the information I need to reset the password. You may very well need the death certificate for proof when you contact them. I am truly sorry for your loss and will be available whenever you need me for further assistance.
