my password or user id is not being accepted and i can not read any mail till i can sign in.
Since 1-9-2015 Yahoo.com does not accept my password. I have tried every password that I have used in the past 8 years and none are accepted. I can find no way to put in my proving answers that was requested when I signed up in order to prove I am me. Therefor I cant change my password. HOW DO I GET BACK INTO E-MAIL NOW??? All your support helps say you will send me an e-mail with a fix but I cant read e-mails without signing in!
