Hello my name is***** and I would be happy to assist you.
Are you using the Yahoo web mail?
When did you accidentally delete the email or notice it was missing? If it was in the last 7 days it might be possible to recover. If not there is nothing that can be done.

There was a recovery request you can send to Yahoo and they try to get deleted mail back, but it has to be within 7 days, and even then it is not a sure thing. Unfortunately January is just too long ago to do anything. The only way you would have it still is if you downloaded a copy of it to a mobile device or an email client. If you've been doing everything through webmail then you are out of options. If it is no longer in the Trash folder then it has been permanently deleted.

I do not know what you mean by web mail. I have an iPhone and I view my emails through my iPhone. It was in the course of reading it that I accidentally got it deleted

Is there no way Yahoo can help me retrieve it even if I have to pay?

Unfortunately they won't be able to help.
