Hello
When you created the account did you register an alternate email address or phone number to which you have accessed?

I cannot remember now whether i have given a phone number or an email as an alternative.

I have a second email account. May be i registered it as an alternative but unfortunately i have the same problem with my second email.

Gee I am really sorry, there are only two ways to recover an account: answer the secret questions or have a reset code sent to the recovery email or phone number. That is the only way Yahoo mail has to prove that you are the legitimate owner.

I am inclined to think that you have not accessed your account for very long time. All email accounts are a very bad place to store data.
