    @TalktoBPI The reason we cant get access to her email is because yahoo mail has changed their login process and my mom's backup accounts have already changed.

    @YahooCare I started here, and I do remember my yahoo mail, password and the first recovery question, but I got stuck on the second recovery question. It doesn't say that my account has been deleted though because I was able to enter my login credentials and answer the 1st recovery question

    @Artwell_6 @paidthruxchange Try looking in to spam folder. We do have some issues with Yahoo email so I’d advise you to use a Gmail address, works fine! And the form you’ll get it in the e-mail too. Please let me know

    Wow...so sorry about the issue. It could be technical ,if its an Outlook mail,the settings needs to be checked. If it's just yahoo or Gmail app probably have to call smile network to check your smile device if the email port wasn't blocked. Thanks
