All Yahoo! accounts automatically expire if they haven't been accessed at least once within a 12-month period. Once an account expire, all the e-mails are permanently deleted; however, the account itself can be reused in the future. You need to type the correct password ***** reset it in case you forgot the password. That will allow you to continue using the same Yahoo! account, but it will be empty - as if you created a brand new account.

Here is the Yahoo! login page:

http://mail.yahoo.com/

If you need to reset the password, you can access this link:

https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot

Follow the instructions to reset the password.

Let me know if you require further assistance.
