Can anybody help me? Please?

Post by kittyboo »

Hey everyone, I registered my screen name when I downloaded AIM 3 years ago and I have always had my password saved because I knew I'd forget it, the thing is today I had to reboot my computer and I lost all my installed programs, I reinstalled AIM but cannot access my account because I do not remember the password, and the email address it is sent to if I forget it has expired, so I have no way of retrieving it!

How can i retrieve my password? Can I update the email address it would be sent to if I lose my password? And where on the aim website do I go to do this? If not are there any other ways I can get my password?

Please, please help me.
Thankyou
Rachel.

unless you know an AOL admin .. they could reset your email for you.

But as Rob said, you're screwed.

Time to break out the dictionary. Or.. you could download a "password cracking" program. They just try to connect on the screen name with a bunch of different passwords. Of course, 99.9% of them don't compensate for the Rate Limiting, which screws up the whole process.

how is it that you registered your screen name, and had an email, 3 years ago, that both expired?...
where did you go??
did you die and come back to life??
and why dont you just register a new screen name, unless you had buddys on that list.
Bethany is cool

Seeing as I nearly lost my oldest SN just last night I can see how it happened... I had the sudden urge to compare my current buddy list and one from (at least) 4 years ago... Forgot the PW (or rather didn't realized it fit the format of my current pw), and was suprised to find it was attached to a email address I still use (and in fact is my main email).
