Question by : How do i link two yahoo accounts?
I did something to my cell phone and now I can’t login to my email. I get the same error mssg that my account is locked. Supposedly I attempted to sign in too many times with the wrong password. Ok. I created another account on my yahoo! I still can’t login to my original account even though it’s been over 24 hours. Yahoo hasn’t replied to me. I don’t know what to do to “unlock” my original account. I can login from landline and netbook, but not my mobile. I can’t get email so can I link the two accounts? Step by step, please?

The only way to link two accounts is to open an ‘alias’ account tied to the original. Use your netbook for setting this one up, but perhaps it still might not work on your cell phone. Usually your account is only locked for 24 or 48 hours after too many failed attempts at passwords – change it to a more memorable one, or type more carefully!
If you open an alternate ALIAS account you will not lose anything (contacts, address list, saved mails, folders.) If someone sends mail to the old e-mail address, it will go to the same Inbox so you don’t lose any messages. There is then a drop-down menu at the right in From: where you can choose which address to use to send mail. Use it just as you would your primary address (which of course you can still use). You can send and receive email from either address from the same Inbox.
