I have a Yahoo Mail account that I forgot the password of. (I use it mostly because of Flickr.)
I tried changing it, but they have a bug that doesn't matter what password you put it you get an error:
you can't use any part of your name in your email
I even tried using only numbers and I get the same error.
As consequence my account got blocked. I have waited the 12hs and 24hs (it tells you different amount of hours in different places), but to no avail. It is still locked. (I do recall my secret answers.)
I even managed to send them an email, but the automatic message said they will answer me to the account that is blocked!
I tried calling their customer service, but I waited 3 hours on the line and they never answered.
I tried creating a secondary account to try to send them an email, but they force you to put a mobile phone.
Has anyone ever dealt with this successfully?
