Hi, used a yahoo account at work and at home. No longer work with the company and the yahoo password was changed (by the company). No longer have access to stored emails!!! Should'nt you be able to retrieve your messages from yahoo anywhere and only reset your pass word yourself? Frustrated to say the least. :thumbsup:

If the e-mail address was one provided by the company, then yes, the company does have the right to change the password.

I take it you did not use an e-mail client such as Thunderbird or Outlook?

That said, I'd suggest talking to the company and informing them that there are e-mails in that account that you need copies of. If you filed the e-mails into folders, you could tell them the folder names containing the e-mails you need. With luck, they have not been deleted.

A word to the wise: Never use a work e-mail account for anything not work related.

Actually, it was a personal email address that I accessed at the company, but some clients were on a personal level and communicated through that address as well. The company used a key logger on all computers on their server and changed my personal password after I left. This may wind up in court as a result since they are being unreasonable to my requests.
