BT Yahoo homepage login

Every time I try to login to my BT Yahoo home page I get message saying Invalid ID or password but I am 100% sure these are entered correctly, any ideas?

I have already changed password as I thought that was the problem - ID and new password works OK with email clients but for some reason the full email and password (definitely correct) wont let me log in to BTyahoo homepage.

Re: BT Yahoo Homepage login

Hi John, Well if can login with a client , that sortss out the login details. I do know that webmail does have occasional login problems.

I would like to know what the solution was... just returned from a trip to switzerland and at several 'public' PCs in hotels, it was impossible to login to the web page for email retrieval (or even Yahoo for that matter) - same error messages as yours (invalid username or password).

 

A separate email account with another provider worked fine for logging in via a web browser

From a previous post I think you had to be in the Uk to use your BT login.  The solution was to use  like windows live mail or similar

Re: BT Yahoo homepage login

Interesting comment about being in the UK. Earlier this year no problems in France ot Italy - I used the yahoo web site and login was fine.

 

Curious as to whether it may actually be if a 'hotel' or internet cafe PC may have cookies disabled which might cause this symptom?

 

I will investigate further about Windows Live Mail in case that may be a solution - tried searching these forums but could not find the mention about this issue.

Re: BT Yahoo homepage login

I've definately logged in with the usual credentials from Italy and Portugal with no problem.

 

If there has been a change, perhaps its a feature of the 'improved' BT Yahoo Mail? :smileysurprised:

I have recently had the same problem webmail fails but email client works ok (only on one of my accounts)

 

I used the reset password facility to reset it to what it was i.e I did not want to have to change the email client.

 

Lo and behold both webmail and email client worked showing that username and password were correct that I was using for webmail.

 

It looks like Yahoo has got some sort of intermittent problem.
