Hi and welcome to Fixya!

Go to

click i cannot access my account;

click forgot password,

click next

Enter in your email address, the security code and try to reset your password.

Then try and sign in again. This will bypass your security questions if you hit the enter alternate email option instead.

Good luck!

I have forgot my password and yahoo secret question's answers, plz help

Well Yahoo has tight security feature that wont allow you get your password if you do not remember your secret questions and answers. When you first opened the account, did you add an alternate email? If you remember the email you added and the password to that then go to that mail as yahoo always sends you account details to the alternate mail.
If you still cant remember any of the details, then you will have to open a new account. But make sure u note the questions and answers down somewhere safe that you wont misplace it. Also remember to use an everyday word thats common to you, like a combination of ur parents names or friends names etc.
I hope this helps you in some way.

Yahoo is currently updating their servers, has been going on all weekend. I have just logged in at 11:05 am EST and it seems to be working correctly again.
I was having problems with mail on Outlook, on the website, and on my phone. Maybe the update is complete (hopefully).
