If you're having issues with a password, try resetting it using your email address (be sure to use the correct spelling). Click "Forgot Password" under the login, then follow the prompt. You should have the option to reset with your phone number.
The issue in GetHuman-prasadng's own words
Hi, our company has the Yahoo email service. The co name is Mavk and my business email id is *****@***.com. I access my email from both my desktop and mobile (Samsung Android). Both were working fine till yesterday morning. *Yesterday morning, while accessing my email from my desktop, I got your idiotic email recovery message and instructions to add my mobile number for recovery as well as change my password. I did all that, and then I was asked to choose Update Outlook.I did that as well and could easily access my mails. But I am not able to access Contacts. So I must actually type all email ids and autopopulate us not working. *Further, my mobile access got disabled immediately. Immediately after the recovery exercise and Updation, I cannot access my emails from my mobile. *So I uninstalled and installed the Outlook app. After installation, I added my email account and entered the new password. But the message I get is "Unable to authenticate. There was some problem during authentication. Pls try again later". I must have tried at least ** times since then, still its the same problem everytime.*I uninstalled Outlook from my mobile and reinstalled * times, but same problem continues.*This is really pissing me off as I am on the site most of the time and badly need mobile access to emails. *I dont care how but I want this problem solved at the earliest. Else, I am considering legal action against Yahoo India or Yahoo Inc,.as applicable. *I have been using gmail from laptop and mobile from several years and have never had a problem. There also, I have provided by ,mobile number for recovery, but there has been no problem. But in Yahoo (Outlook), I have so many problems. Our co did a big mistake by choosing Yahoo for our business emails. We should have chosen gmail.
