    Email Access Trouble!

    Bought an account, took a hiatus, now the password isn't working. I can't remember if I changed it or not. I put a fair amount of work into the account post-purchase, so...I'd really like to get it back if possible.

    I have access to the email (correct address and password), but because the account hasn't been visited from my location and has an international phone number attached, Yahoo won't let me in.

    Any ideas?

    I tried going through a Canadian proxy to see if that would trip up the location service telling the website I was signing in from a "new" location, but that didn't help.

    Getting help gaining access to the email OR the account is enough. I don't actually care about the email, I just want my stuff back!

    People here can only give advice about getting into the email; any sort of account hacking is not permitted. What message does Yahoo give when it refuses to let you in?

    Don't need anything hacked, I just need advice on what to do.

    It asks to send me a code via text or call me with said code to a Canadian phone number I don't have. It won't let me bypass it no matter what I do.

    I've tried proxies and nothing seems to work.
