I have been using my husband's email address since he died

Customer Question

I have been using my husband's email address since he died 18 months ago. I was given a samsung tablet and hoped to receive emails through that while I was abroad. A friend tried to help but only succeeded in coming out of that and now I cannot send or receive emails from my computer. I do not know the password ***** husband used. Please can you help!

Thank you Eleanor
What we need to do is reset the password ***** you can use this new password.
Please click on my link below and follow the process to complete the reset of your password
Once done, use this new password ***** sign in.
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and fix the issue if possible.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself.
I will send an offer through support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps .
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
Let me know the results please
