    Recently my btinternet email account has started sending on average 100 spam emails each day.

    I contacted them and there only suggestion was to change my email address.

    It was recomended I create a yahoo email address/account.

    This was succesful for a few hours and I then contacted all my usual emailers to tell them about the change.

    Then suddenly I went back into yahoo mail, and now I am getting the message every time I try to login

    "Sorry we do not recognise that email address"

    A real nightmare. I just cannot figure out why and trying to get help from yahoo means signining up and paying a monthly fee for the privelege.

    Anyone have any ideas please ?

    Get a Gmail address instead. Yahoo email totally sucks and is spam ridden.

    Yea, Yahoo stinks. Gmail is better.

    Did you give another mailaccount as backup? If so I think you should have a validation email in there!
    I think you must validate your new account before its up and running…. Did you?

    Protonmail is also not a bad email client. But gmail is sufficient for most people.

    Too late have informed everyone on my email list of the new email address.
