whoa - whoa
If you have the yahoo paid accnt contact yahoo customer support and they will help reset ur password:) I presume you have a free yahoo account, u have a "forgot your password?" function. These will either confirm your identity with a question / answer that you provided when you signed up, or will reset and/or email your password to an alternate email address you provided when you signed up. Changing or resetting your password IS UR ONLY CHANCE to recover your email account. If that can't be made to work, then get a new account, and let your friends know that your old email account has been compromised and to disregard anything they get form the old address. in the future make sure you close ur browser when you logout froma shared computer:)
