Answer a few online security questions to reset your RocketMail password.

RocketMail was one of the Internet's major email service providers in the mid-1990s. In 1997, this email service was purchased by Yahoo. Now that Yahoo owns RocketMail, old Rocketmail accounts are integrated into Yahoo's Web-based email 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 email address acts as your ID on Yahoo's site.
