You said you were successful changing it already, but then got locked out. Is this correct?

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

What email are you trying to get back after the @? gmail/outlook/yahoo etc?

How do you usually access your email? Email client such as windows live, (built in email app

on the computer itself that looks like an envelope) Thunderbird? Using a regular browser such

as Firefox/Internet Explorer/Chrome etc?

Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 8 months ago

ok, when you changed the password, are you positive it was successful already?

and what device did you do that on? Did your windows 10 use the new password *****?

i tried to use the password ***** it must have been entered wrong, that caused the lock out

in chrome on win 10

Are you still getting it on your phone?

And are you receiving a message that says you are locked out for 24 hours?

It is different from not being able to access it and when it tells you they cannot verify you.

no i got a message that my ownership couod not bevferified though i answered the security questions

still getting email on my phone yes
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok, it will depend on what back up you have put in place as to if you can get that email back.

The reason your phone is still working is one of two reasons. It hasnt recognized you changed passwords

yet which is common. Or the old password ***** ***** 'in' the phone.

How do you access the email on your phone? browser, clicking built in email client or did you download

an app such as gmail?

built in gmail app on phone
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 8 months ago

What does that envelope look like? Gmail isnt usually built in. It is downloaded or a gmail email is

added to the email client built in that is generic.

color of the envelope?
