Windows 7: Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail

Hello all..

I have tried to manage this issue with Yahoo..But on all honesty it's like chasing a headless chicken.

I wonder if somebody can help/advise me. The field in which you type in, for your password has disappeared. I have looked into this on 2 different laptops including my main computer, with 4 different types of browsers. Is anybody else experiencing this at all?

Thanks.

Carl

Hi,
Some email services use 2 step entries
First you enter the email account and the enter key
Then the password box appears....
Gmail has gone this way.

Strange, because I have been using this service since the year 2000 and never have I encountered an issue. All of a sudden I am unable to sign in, all because there is no field for the password.

Hi,
Looks like the same method as gmail = 2 step sign in.

Hi you're welcome
They have switched it for a more secure second step to enter the password in
It also limits errors in entering either step
If you fail the first step entering the email address you automatically know it
Otherwise all of them have a three strikes and you're in lockout and reset password mode which is no fun
Cheers.

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail
The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to...
