    Help - Why Does Yahoo Email Keep Asking Me To Verify My Password?

    I log onto my yahoo email with user name and password. Then I click on a new email and instead of going to the email it redirects me to a page that asks me to verify my password. Once I do that it says sorry for the inconvenience and something about an error. I can then click on my inbox and it displays my new messages. I click on one and it goes right to the password verification page. Then it lets me see the message. I then try to reply and it goes to the password verification page. I never had this happen before. it has been doing this for 3 days.

    It is irritating and time consuming.

    Any reason for it?

    Any way to stop it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I dont think youre the only one, seems like an ongoing problem

    Yahoo mail keeps asking for password every minute!!? - Yahoo! Answers

    Yahoo Mail Classic keeps asking for password? - Yahoo! Answers

    i ditched yahoo mail years ago, really awkward to use. I prefer Gmail nowadays.

    Its the same for me with my hotmail account. I'd drop it like a hot brick but everyone knows the addy for that off by heart.

    Not everyone who uses email either bothers to or knows how to use stuff like contacts, they remember the address and type it in. Good enough for you?

    ok, here is the trick,

    In hotmail or fuckhoo, you will use as a return address a different address, that is the new one,

    people are lazy and they will use reply and eventually see that you have a new address,

    I wonder how the internet could go on if everyone would use the same lame excuse as yours

    maybe just transfer your contacts to a new gmail account and send out a mass mailing with your new email addy?

    Its not a big deal, for the few people who just remember the addy it will suffice. BF is once again making a mountain out of a computing molehill.

    it wasn't an order, just instructions on how to do it, but I guess even that is too difficult for you

    just giving a solution to a really silly problem, anyway as long as you enjoy being an Internet retard by using yahoo, nobody is going to stop you. I would suggest using AOL to really impress your friends

    Ahh the old Mac jibes are coming out, theres a shock. no its not too difficult for me, its for the aunties and uncles who do things like write email adresses down on bits of paper or just remember them.

    "You will" is an order. I know youre one of them horrible foreigners and everything but at least make an effort to learn the language we converse with on here.

    If you haven't already next time you log on, try checking the box "keep me logged on for 2 weeks...".

    When finished with your email, Don't log off!!

    Might fix your problem.

    I wasn't aware that there were any computer genius on TD, I guess I didn't get the memo, Webboy and Server Room boy have no fucking clue, but you wouldn't know you are a Mac user

    You must be a Mac user, confusing bandwidth issue with seeding

    Thanks for that.
    Ive had Gmail for years, back in the time when you had to have an invite for it. Im sorry about calling you a genius, that was totally uncalled for.
