Hi and thank you for your question.

Just to clarify, who's your email provider, e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, etc.? Are you able to sign in to the account now, or are you locked out?

Please reply at the box below, and then we will continue further.

It is a regular yahoo email account, yes I am able to sign in but keep getting mailer Deamon undeliverable notices when I have not sent any out. I really need to know how to change my Email access password.
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 months ago.

I see, all right; it does look like your Yahoo account might have gotten compromised somehow, hence these undeliverable emails are being sent on your behalf. Please open up the following link first:

Sign in to your Yahoo account, when prompted.

Next, click Account Security on the left.

Click Change password. Enter and confirm your new password.

Click Continue > Continue to finish.

This should do it. If you need more help, please use the Reply box below to continue our conversation.
