My friends machine died (won't power on). He bought a new machine but must have had his yahoo email set to login automatically. As much as I tell people not to do this, they continue to do it. The problem he cannot remember his email password. I have a ticket open with yahoo, but into the fourth day, they have been no help at all.

I took the drive from his old machine and booted up with in a computer I have at home, and if I click on the desktop link for his email, I can get into his yahoo email. This tells me it must be stored on the machine some where, but I cannot find it. I tried something called ie passview but it didn't seem to help.

Just go to the Yahoo login page & click on "I can't access my account".

riider, that doesn't work because he has no mobile phone numbers on file. He also has no secret questions set up, and his alternate email was his previous ISP provider, and he didn't update it after changing ISP providers. Our only hope is that yahoo can ask some questions that only he will know, but so far I can't even get them to respond to my emails.

The other option is to try recover the password from the old drive, as it logs in automatically. I am sure yahoo could tell me how to do this if they would get back to me. It certainly makes me thinking about getting rid of my yahoo email.

hi John,

I tried all four and none of them seem to show anything related. The only thing I did see is password scan showed the following;

https://secure.invaluable.com/signi...

Would it be helpful at all to post the URL that gets me into the email......it ends with .rand= but I am not sure if that is significant or not.
