Locked out of my free account

I recently received a message that I've been locked out of my free account because of somthing having to do with a yahoo email hack.

Does anyone know a way to unlock the account?

I had to sign up for a new account in order to get access to the community.  Since it is a free account there is no Teamviewer support.

    Did my reply answer your question? Why not accept it as a solution to help others?
  • Hi Scotty,

    This solution does not work because the reset email is never sent.  I had to create a new account with a different email and then re-create my computer list.

    I would still like to access my previous account as there are computers I couldn't address as yet.

    Do you know why the reset emails are not going out.  Could it be that it is because my domain is  I understand that some kind of hack of yahoo's servers occurred that resulted in all the accounts with a yahoo address being blocked.
