Wait 24 hrs and try to log in again...And this time try to enter the correct secret answer - unless someone have access to your yahoo id and have change your secret answer. Below is from Yahoo support:>

Yahoo! uses temporary, automatic account locking as a security measure to protect accounts from unauthorized access. Sometimes you can also become temporarily locked out of your own account as a result.

Reasons you might see an account locked message:

  • Three or more failed sign in attempts: This triggers our security system to temporarily lock the account for 24 hours.
  • They're automatic security measures: In case an unauthorized person tried to access the account, we lock it for your protection.
  • Someone with a similar Yahoo! ID accidentally typed your ID on log in: If you haven't recently tried to sign in to your account, then it could be someone else's harmless mistake. Their Yahoo! ID may be similar to yours and they may have mistakenly typed in your Yahoo! ID instead of their own.

How our account lock works:

  • It lasts 24 hours, starting on the third unsuccessful log in attempt.
  • It doesn't reset. Attempting to login again within the 24 period will not help.
  • Try again after 24 hours. Once the lockout time has expired, your password should work as usual.

Yahoo mail trouble shooting.

Yahoo Mail | Answered on Aug 26, 2016

I would try the basics first, if the retry doesn't work and switch to classic doesn't work.

You can go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ and download FireFox. This will work, that is what I'm using now.

Or I just found out the the Beta version of Internet Explorer 9 is working ok with yahoo. You can get that at http://www.beautyoftheweb.com/

Periodically, yahoo or microsoft will send out an update that will not work. it will be fixed, it is just a matter of time.
