Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website (https://help.yahoo.com). In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

Greetings @nomir39

 

Change your Yahoo password or reset a forgotten password - https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail/SLN2035.html?impressions=true

If your account is still active and you currently live in the US then you are in luck as this article shows Yahoo recently started offering a Yahoo Account Pro service that offers phone support for a small fee.

What do you mean by "deleted" it. An account has a password and it can not be deleted, only changed. If you have just deleted the stored password that is filled into the sign in page just reenter it.

In 25 days (January 31, 2019) the Classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. At that time you'll be upgraded to the newest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail depending on your browser's compatibility.

Hello @nomir39

 

If it not possible to delete your password.  You can remove a saved password from a browser but it remains on Yahoo.

 

If your remember your password just sign-in (http://www.yahoo.com/mail) and enter it when prompted.  Chances are the browser will give you the option to save it.

 

If you do not remember it, do this:

 

Reset a forgotten password

  1. Go to the Sign-in Helper.
  2. Enter one of the account recovery items listed.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. Follow the instructions given in the Sign-in Helper.

If you have other questions feel free to post again.
