Hi All,

My Yahoo password has been hacked by clicking on a link which was sent to me by a unknown person.

It has not been recovered for about 7 days.

I have forgotten the information, which I put during the sign up like area code, address etc.

Can anyone tell me please how to recover the yahoo password.

Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Email Yahoo. They'll take about a week to get back to you. But you shouldn't be depending on a Yahoo account for anything vital. It's time you got web savvy. Now is as good as time as any.

I use my yahoo account as my public address. Meaning I only use it when I sign up to stuff to thus filter anything I didn't sign up for to automatically be put in the bulk folder. So if I sign up for WebmasterWorld newsletter I'd put a filter like, if subject does not contain webmasterworld move email to junk/bulk folder.

There are some kinda ok and some kinda nice email systems you can setup and mod to look like your own site. Some are free and some aren't.
