There are certain reasons & certain remedies:
Your account has been locked for security reasons, this means that there have been too many attempts to sign in
to ur account with the incorrect password. As a security measure, ur account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to access it.
If u haven't been trying to sign in to ur account with the wrong password, this is not necessarily cause for concern. It could simply be the result of another user mistakenly thinking that ur ID is theirs. (To learn more about account security, visit the Yahoo! Security Center.)
This usually happens when an incorrect password is repeatedly
used, and is for security reasons.
Lock out is in force for 24 hours - you will have to wait it out.

SOURCE: Forgotten the Yahoo mail Password

If that's the alternate e-mail you put in when you sign up to yahoo. If not I hope you still remember whatever it is that you use.

Then click on the forget Yahoo ID or password in the bottom of the yahoo sign in box. They'll send you the password to your alternate e-mail.

Hope that helps,

SOURCE: how can i retrieve my yahoo email account

you have to supply your alternate email account (if any) and answer all the questions. then change your password. or if that's the case, you have to write yahoo regarding your account that was hacked so they can block the said account. Last thing you can do, sign up for a new account.

SOURCE: i cant open my yahoo mail lost password and

You will need to go to the bottom of the page where it says "forgot username and password" and click on it. Then it will ask for you the security questions you put down when signing up with the account in order to verify you. You will need to continue following the instructions until you get a default password for you to sign in with your account.

You can reset your password through the secondary e-mail address if you provided any. The password reset link will be sent on that particular mail-id and you will be able to reset your password and access with it on yahoo mail.

I forgot the answers in my security questions at yahoo mail..please help..thanks

Contact yahoo support through their website and tell them that you have forgotten your security questions to access your account. They will ask you things like who you email on a regular basis and when you opened & last accessed your account ect. As long as you can answer these questions correctly they should help you with regaining access to your account.

Sir.i have forgotten my yahoo account "" password and also the security question's answer..i have some important mails in that account and it would be of great help if a...

The only i can see is to contact yahoo regarding your problem and they will verify your personal details that you have provided in your account to check the genuineness and legitimacy of the account.
But if you have forgotten those details also then i am afraid and have to say that there is no way you can retrieve your emails.

I forget my yahoo mail id password but i remember answers of both security questions. i don't want to reset my password, i want to retrieve my old password, please help me.

You cannot retain the forgotten password because no one has the password but you. Since you have forgotten the password you can only be prompted to change the password to something else you can remember if you answer the security questions correctly .
