  11. For the last one week, my Password does not work. I have to start from "Forgot my Password". Look into this issue.

    It is good idea that we should change our password frequently. But in my case for the last one week I have to start from "Forgot my password" and have to sign in new password every time. This was not happening earlier. Is there any change in our policy? Is this happening with others also or with me only? I would like to have your views and how I can resolve this issue.

  12. My 2 email accounts stopped working a month ago. Can't access them. need help but cannot contact U

    neither of my email accounts work - they stopped a month ago. I can occasionally get in one or the other but when I click the mail icon, the sign up window does not appear and when it does sometimes, after I type in my account name, sometimes it will not bring up the password screen and if I am able to put in my password, it will just sit there and the little circle goes round and round and it will not let me into my mail. Need help. Please call at 817-581-6024. Thank you

  19. l would like to change my current password, my colleagues can open my PC and read my emails

    my idea is that the yahoo.com site should be private to each user, no one must be able to open other PC's to view other people's mail.
    This is very, very disturbing - when l open to read my mail, does not aske for password, l just click on my name and mail, the entire emails
    are shown, which is very wrong, - Please rectify this.

    this will not work, sending a code everytime to the verification email. It took forever to get in. I tried 5 x's before your system accepted the code. This is nuts!!!! Will this happen everytime I try ot accesss my emails? Do I need to use Gmail from now on?
