If you can see the password character try to guess characters. Another way is to communicate with yahoo and tell them your problem. They will help you definitely.

Hehehe, Am not that bad. lol. Well i tried all that stuff. Been trying since a long time that i think my account must have become locked. Well i cant do that forgot password thing becasue i dont know about my own security questions. WEll becasue what i think that i had always put them truly only, but when i reply in that box truthfully, It says , sorry, wrong match and stuff like that. Well i really dont know what to do. Have tried all this forgot password thing. I need this mail id becasue it is connected to my paypal and alertpay also. Well anyways thanks for replying here and happy mylotting :)

They have an option to send the email password to you on the other email account that you would have given to them at the time of signing up with the account. It will be on the sign in page.

the only thing that you can do is go through the security questions to retrieve your password. maybe once you see your security question it will trigger the answer to it.

Well yahoo has changed. I tried doing that but there is nothing like security questions and stuff like that. they have chnaged it to asking about the country where you reside and my date of birth and stuff like that. Well i can answer that, but what i cant answer is that , the postal code. becasue i have stayed in soo many places sincethe past 2-3 years. And now i am soo stuck with things and i really dont know what to do. !!I cant even go 2 change my password, Becasue to enter the account information page, i will have to tpye my password again. Well anyways i really dont know what to do. If you come to know please do help me . thanks . Happy mylotting :)

listen carefully , the first step you can take is (only if you have mention your alter email address while sign up) you can ask them to send your password on your alter email address. but i guess you haven't did so, while signing up. ok so you say you got your password store in messenger, let me tell you the trick, while login you might see the password in stars i.e asterisk (*), or you might not so you can try login in again with no internet connection, so that it wont login you automaticaly and it will show you the password but in asterisk, so now i will suggest you the asterisk key tool from here http://www.lostpassword.com/asterisk.htm and now after installation you will come to know the process. thankyou
