brajeshwar (at) yahoo (d0t) com

I signed up for a Yahoo! and a Hotmail account in 1999. I have the Hotmail account under my control but I forgot my password for Yahoo!

I have

  • tried all permutations and combinations to retrieve the password with their “Forgot Password” without success
  • tried calling them up without success
  • tried mailing them many times without success

Well, the thing is that I usually get all accounts/IDs on the internet with my name as my name is a not-so-common name. I would really like to yet my own Yahoo! account with my name. And yes, that account is mine and is now dormant due to inactivity.

I would like to request anybody to try and get me that by any means – hack, crack or anything.

In return, I would do social service to the Internet Community by spending atleast 2 hours daily Monday to Friday for one month replying, helping developers/designers on forums and mailing list. I would not just reply to common querries but would try my best to get to the more challenging and difficult ones and try to solve them for aspiring developers/designers.

And I would of course make a special big Thank You link/page on my site for whoever can get me the ID and it will remain as long as my site remains on the internet.

If I am lucky to get a Yahoo! representative interested in this, I am happy to answer all questions to prove that brajeshwar (at) yahoo (d0t) com is me and was created by me.

  1. Hi,
    I had the same problem, and I just had to sign up for a new account, as nobody ever got back to me at yahoo. yeah, I lost alot of stuff way back when, but nothing too bad.

    Good luck`-`

  3. I believe that Yahoo turns on a captcha after a few failed logon attempts.

    If it is that important to you, you might try a more holistic approach such as through hypnosis, which is really just guided, highly focused concentration.

    Unless your security minded and create completely random passwords, you probably used a password that should have been easy for you to remember at the time. Assumming you used the password multiple times and some part or all of the password was important to you in some way, A hypnotist might be able to help you retrieve it.

  4. Be realistic, you can't get it back this way.
    Whoever you are, how important you could be, if Yahoo! starts to do this favor for you, it is endless, it will be a tsunami of "legitimate" requests and the end of Yahoo!.

    The only solution is to let it expire and resign for it and as you mentioned "my name is a not-so-common name" unless you have huge fanclub, nobody else than you will take it over.

    Be patient and goodluck.
