This has been happening to a lot of people. There are several I imagine, but the most likely reason is that Yahoo suspects someone or something (auto spam bot) has been trying to guess your password. The first answerer is right---after numerous incorrect attempts, Yahoo will block your account for a time. You can try these: Customer Service***@******.*** Mail Help http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/ Or call and wait on hold for the next agent.(###) ###-####***-***-**** https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070821130844AArEEjd
