To recover Passwords in Yahoo you need:
1) The secret question answer
2) You must have setup a secondary, backup email address. You can send a password reset request there.

Without those items, you are out of luck and the email is a loss.

I agree that this does sound a little weird. Especially with password resets and mobile reminders and such. I forget my security questions some times, because I don't make them too easy to crack. Questions like "what's your middle name" offer pretty much no security against anyone willing to do a little Googling. I do remember where I went on my honeymoon, and even if I did forget the answers there are just too many other options for getting your account back.

You forgot already where you honeymooned? Sheesh. Too much of something.
You got bigger problems than hacking someone's email.
