The answer to your first question is "Yes" you have a password for your yahoo email account. Otherwise everyone who knows your email id will be able to access it. Which simply means it'll be public instead a private email account. More over, I haven't come across any email account or mail services without a password but with a user id or email address.
And the answer to your second question is "No", if I know your password then I may be accessing your email without your permission and so the importance of email security and email privacy will useless. You can't even get a password from Yahoo this way, you have to use the "I can't access my account" form. But you have to remember your alternate email address and the security answer. These were entered during the account setup.
Open this link "Forgot My password?" now in the first text box, enter your user id (yahoo id, not the email, the username that comes before the @yahoo.com....) and in the second box, enter the text shown below and click "next", and then enter your alternate email address and then "Next", enter the answer to the security question. A password reset email will be sent to your alternate email address.

Also note that currently yahoo has no service to retrieve users' password using the mobile number or security answer in some areas/country. If you are fortunate, you'll be able to get the reset email.
There are few options to retrieve or reset yahoo password, but all the options will ask you to enter the alternate email address and the security answer.

I am sorry that it's not possible to give you your personal password.

If you need further help, you are still welcome to reply.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sir, pls how will i get the yahoo mail password for my Nokia 6500. the settings of yahoo mail and my mail address is on my phone but any time i want to check in my mail,it calls for yahoo mail password


If you have a Yahoo mail account then you must be having its password too. Same password will work everywhere you use Yahoo mail. it does not matter if it the PC or the laptop or the mobile phone or a PDA.

But if you have forgotten the password then you will have to go to the Yahoo login page and click on "Forgot your password" and take action as directed. You will get a new password in your email.
