    I have a yahoo email account (not this one) which is somehow now tagged
    as a child account, and I cannot login anymore. Is there any advice on
    how to undo this?

    I've using the account since year beginning with no problem, and
    yesterday had some advice from Yahoo customer support where they
    advised me to edit the Account Info settings, which I did with no
    problem. When I tried to login into the account again, it is now
    stating it is a Child account and I need Parent access to view. As
    there is no Parent account linked (as I am an adult!) I can't get in at
    all. I've emailed Yahoo CS again, but no reply yet. I have a very
    nasty feeling that they will deny responsibility and refuse to correct
    their fault.

    Any advice on either a technical solution, or persuasion technique that
    can undo this foulup is much, much appreciated.

  2. Sounds like the curse of the dropdown box. You probably change the DOB
    without even knowing. Would you like a gmail invite - it's much better then

    yeah its original but you should have added something like "remove"
    somewhere in it, you can likely expect some spam from some not so nice folks
    on that account now that you posted it here

    Same problem here with Yahoo mail (and can't access adult profiles )
    so I now use Gmail.

  8. Speaking of nice, it's not nice to get spam sent to places you're not
    associated with. Do you really have that mail account at
    Didn't think so.

    Nothing yet, no spam either. Anyhoo, if one of my emails becomes a
    prob, I would just delete it or simply make another and not use it.
    Not with the gmail though I will keep it.
    I have not had a problem with any of my mail programs. I don't
    tolerate ads or spam.

  11. Even if you do check and find nothing, that's no guarantee that
    whatever you've made up won't be a real domain tomorrow. Better to
    just not make up stuff in the first place.
