I`m a stock contributor from Ukraine for last 8yrs (from Fotolia even) I recently used (for login) the following email ****@yandex.ua and a backup email ------@yandex.ua - it appeared that due to the Russian war against Ukraine russian company Yandex has disabled .ua emails forever.
I`ve been advised (for some reason) to create a new Adobe acc and to write to adobe email
about this issue, but no reply.
I asked for a help via support chat again today, they switched to another specialist and still no response at all.
What are the sollutions to login to my account? Cause I cant recieve ANY code from Adobe Stock to my already none existing email?
p.s. Adobe support chat didnt reply for 30min and they just switched the chat off,
which is just a brilliant support 🙂

If you are only a contributor and not a customer for other Adobe services, you can use this e-mail to contact contributor support: email@example.com.
I'm also pinging @MatHayward, who may be of help here.
Update this thread if you do not get help from contributor support. We will check then how to solve your issue using some of our backchannels.
If you are a customer of Adobe products too, try again the chat again. Let us know if you are still having problems. Here also, we may ask for advanced guidance.
Thanks a lot Abambo,
currently my "results" are the following
- 3times chat with adobe support,
basically they switch to a specialist Michelle who responds nothing within 25min
then the chat is off automatically
- Firstly I have mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
but there is no answer from yesterday.
I have some money there to withdraw to PayPal and I really dont want to loose an access to my account.
I can proove that I have been logged in Adobe Stock Contributor pannel for a long time from the same IP (its static) which I use now. Also, I have PayPal transactions emails from Adobe to my (already disabled) email.
Sure, I check my mailbox constantly.
p.s. just to provide some additional details what happened with my Adobe Contributor login email
There used to be an option for multiple countries to have a different regional endings to your email.
my_email*yandex.ua - Ukraine
my_email*yandex.by - Belarus
my_email*yandex.ru - Russia
my_email*yandex.com Regular one
So, I really dont know when Yandex did that, but its a fact - they have disabled .UA domains
which I exactly used to login. All other domains are still in service.
Do you have a case number from your chats? You can post them here, they bear no confidentiality but help Adobe employees to check the chat.
Well, the entire chat has no case number at all, just a name of a specialist.
But in order to show the process I just tried for my 4th chance to get a help there.
Here are all the screenshots.
and still nothing after 12min
20min - no results
To summ up
from 5:18 PM to 5:52 PM Michelle was pretty busy with my issue )
So today this specialist was chilling for 1hr when kept silence in a chat with me.
Cause I ran chat 4times today
You get a case number, if I remember correctly, at the beginning of the conversation. And you get it via e-mail at the end.
But there is one point that intrigues me. You can't access your Adobe id (because that is what you need to access your contributor account). It may well be that when you say "contributor account" the agent refers you to a contributor support agent. However, CUSTOMER SUPPORT CHAT is preferably not to be used for contributor support.
However, what you need to say, is that you can't access your Adobe id because of the Yandex UA drop. I think that will bring you forward to an Adobe id specialist who can help you out by changing simply the TLD to COM or RU or BY in your e-mail.
I think that may be a possible route. Keep us updated.
Thanks again Abambo, I appreciate your help a lot!
"You get a case number, if I remember correctly, at the beginning of the conversation. And you get it via e-mail at the end."
It might be a different process you described.
Cause I just press a support link, then go through bot service and switch to a specialist.
None of emails after my four times chat experience (spam checked as well).
But, speaking about emails I got a response from adobe contributor support
which says the following "I have searched with all those email addresses and I couldn't find any Adobe Stock Contributor account."
Ofcourse, I have provided them a link to my portfolio, some screenshots of editorial images
on my Adobe Stock page which declares that I own RAW files wich are in sale there.
Will keep you updated, thanks again!
Well, not much was solved via email@example.com
They said they cant changed my login email
but it looks like they dont understand that I cant recieve a confirmation code when I login - because my email is out of service.
Adobe Case Update 00144508
Copy link to clipboard
I'm a Adobe Stock contributor from Ukraine. I used to sell my photos here for 8+ years (from Fotolia).
For last 2 years I use email operated by Yandex (russian) company.
and no phone connected to my Adobe ID.
Once I cleaned cache the problem appeared - I just realized that after the war of Russia against Ukraine started, dear Yandex Mail has disabled .UA TLD
So, now I'm completely locked. When I login a confirmation code goes to my emails which are out of service.
Chat support redirects me to firstname.lastname@example.org while they say it's not possible to change my primary email.
Basically, its not my fault when a mail provider kills their service
with zero notifications in advance.
Anyone can help me with this issue?
How can I try to change anything in settings when I cant login at all?
Well, the Adobe Chat Support demonstrates extremely LOW knowledge. But they love to copy paste every possible instructions from adobe support web pages.
The thing is - that most of people working on Adobe Support dont understand that a confirmation code
is sent before entering a password.
Another thing which is not funny - they advise to change settings of two factor authorisation in my account.
So, they really dont wanna think and analyze, that its not possible to change ANY settings when one cant log in.
Well, it looks to me that this one is from contributor support and that he or she correctly tells that you need to get in touch with the Adobe ID support. This is, what I assumed from the start on.
