I am afraid to be the bearer of bad news. The way e,ail servers work is that they do not know who we are so they rely on the test questions. if we do not have a way to remember these answers they interpret that as an attempt on your account to break as the user is unable to identify themselves.

unfortunately either the correct password or the correct answers have to be supplied for you to reach your emails. There is no workaround.

I would confirm the password is correct and also check for CAPS LOCK key or any keys stuck on the down position,.

I wish you luck in this endeavour.
