I forgot my Yahoo! mail password and I am very interested in accessing and maintaining my Yahoo! mail account because it contains a lot of data since 2003. What can I do to recover or change my Yahoo! mail password?

In your case select the first option and click on Next.
Enter your Yahoo ID, you will redirect to How would you like to recover access to your account? page with options to recover like:
