Hi Rodz.
If you can't remember your yahoo id itself or anything on this page, you're pretty much screwed.
After 2 years of inactivity, you could be gone anyways. Not sure what Yahoo's policy is on that.

After two years of inactivity, it might be easier to set up a new ID completely.
I keep a small notebook with such information in a secure place just in case I forget.
Cheers,
John

Hey guys!

well yeah. I tried creating a new one just recently with the use of the old id. it says its unavailable.
I thought they had reset their system or something already after almost 3 years.

How about myspace? is there a way to retrieve the password besides it getting it sent to the email that is registered to? because of what happend to yahoo i couldn't get in my old myspace account as well. :thumbsup: LOL!

I had an account that was deleted after 3 months of inactivity...3 years ago I dont think they had that policy but it should apply to an account once the rule was enforced.

I used that account as my "totaly expect to get spamed from anything I did on the web" account. So I never checked it..poof it was gone 3-4 months later with a disclaimer telling me why I couldnt access it any longer.

to answer the original question; I rummaged around for and found the link in my posting above for a colleague who could no longer access her e mails ; we used it successfully to retrieve a lost password which is why I am recommending its use :thumbsup:

we are not doing much better either; however, I think a lot of my 'friend's' problems are her somewhat stupidity in the manner of her useage of shared computers; she is a disaster where computers are concerned and 'an identity and spamming accident 'waiting to happen :thumbsup:
