My gmail accounts are safe and sound. Ymail not so much - there is no way of retreiving a new pw, and now I am completely blocked off. I called the CS number as well - many times - and once I go through the entire spiel of dial this for that, four levels into the call system, I get a message that they can't currently take calls and to go to their online help pages, which are completely ridiculous. The account was linked with another account, so no idea why they make it so difficult - I just regret I ever trusted them enough to get an email address through them. Their answer can't be to just close people's accounts or let strangers continue to use them (I obviously don't know what the case is here)!
