Hi, I was in Mexico a few weeks ago and checked my email, came home and changed password to my yahoo email. I haven't had to put it in since. Until now and I can not remember it for the life of me! I feel like a dummy because I also can not get my security question right. UGH!! And I can only try a few times and it locks me out for 24 hours. My alternate email address is no longer good, it was with our old internet provider. I called yahoo, and they can't help me because I can't answer my security question. I just can not believe I don't know my own security question!

Has anyone used the password recovery you can buy for $10? Did it work? I'm worried, they will get all my passwords for my other accounts. Any one can you help?

The password recovery software is only for files on the local machine. It ain't gonna do anything for a forgotten email log-in password, I'm afraid.

Easiest solution is to just set up a new email address with Yahoo. That's all you can do now.
