Unfortunetly it seems that someone for whatever reason has Locked your account. This is very simple to do using easy account lockers. Your account could be locked for 12hrs-24hrs-permanent.
Here is a solution for unlocking your account:
To do this you must first sign into a edit server or msg server for a new cookie. To do this navigate your browser to click here , click here , or click here .Once you are here you must sign in with the account that is locked. Once signed in just exit out and sign into messeger.
If this does not resolve the situation you may have to create another user ID.
I hope this isn't the case, maybe someone else here will have some other options for you to follow, as they are very compuer savvy here:)
With Thanks.

No, they cannot gain any useful information from your Messenger Account.
Your Account may have only been locked for a couple of hrs or so, so keep trying to loggin.
If it has been locked like I expect it has been, then the 'Locker' has used what is known as an 'Account locker'. These are very simple programs to obtain and run.
But rest at ease, they CANNOT gain anything usefull from your account regarding your contact details, passwords and so forth.
I have placed a simple link here that you may find usefull, it has nearly all of your Yahoo needs and much more. Go through the Free software, search for Yahoo Tools software, and there may be and Account Unlocker there. There are hundreds of programs to search through (all Free) so be patient.
In the meantime, keep checking back to see if anyone else has left some good advice for you.
With Thanks.

Sorry, I nearly forgot to answer all your questions.
I don't think it is possible to retrieve a contact list from a locked/deleted Yahoo Account.
I maybe wrong, but lets see what other users have to advise first.
With Thanks.
