RocketMail was one of the Internet's major e-mail service providers in the mid-1990s. In 1997, this e-mail service was purchased by Yahoo. Now that Yahoo owns RocketMail, old Rocketmail accounts are integrated into Yahoo's Web-based e-mail system. While RocketMail once had its own protocols, it is not synonymous with Yahoo, and all of your RocketMail operations occur on Yahoo's website, including password resetting. Your full RocketMail e-mail address acts as your ID on Yahoo's site.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Visit the Yahoo Mail site. You can also go to "" and you will be redirected to the Yahoo site.

  2. 2

    Click "I can't access my account," found underneath the login area of the screen.

  3. 3

    Select "I forgot my password" from the list of options on screen and click "Next."

  4. 4

    Enter your full RocketMail e-mail address in the space labelled "Yahoo! ID."

  5. 5

    Enter the code posted on the screen and click "next." This code is a security measure designed to prevent automated spam programs from hacking the system.

  6. 6

    Answer the security questions on screen to reset your password to a new password of your choice. Your security questions are personal questions that only you know the answers to, and you set them up at the time when your account was created.

  7. 7

    Enter your password and click "Finish."

Tips and warnings

  • If you do not know the answers to your security questions, you cannot reset your password, but you can have your old password sent to your alternative e-mail or as a text message to your cell phone.
