My previous response indicated why you can't recover this account.  This account will be deleted automatically but that will not help you as Yahoo no longer recycles email addresses so you would not be able to create a new account using the previous email address.

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.

When was the last time you had signed into this account to check your email?  Yahoo requires that you sign into your account at least once every 12 months in order for your account to remain active.  Otherwise your account is deactivated due to inactivity.  Once that happens it's unlikely you can recover this account.

I'm sorry but there's going to be no way to recover this account.
