There is no suspicious activity! It is just one of the latest glitches which have been bothering users since 2 days ago. Yahoo staff has been notified and is working on it, but there's no telling when the problem will be solved.

To how many recipients did you try to send your email? Chances are Yahoo Mail automatically suspected your account as a spammer account. You need to wait 24-48 before you can send messages again.

Hi, Jodi.

Unfortunately, there is no set time amount before YM releases an account from security lockdown.

It will wait anywhere from a few hours, to a few weeks, depending on the type of activity that was reported.
The more severe the problem, the longer they wait.

You can try sending an e-mail to yahoo support, and let them know what the problem is, they may release the account if you let them know what is going on.

I hope this helps you understand what is going on, and have a good day !

1 Answer Yahoo account says there is suspicious activity on my a/c and won't let me send emails all of a sudden,

Some "computer-hacker" has obtained the password to your Yahoo! account,
and is logging-on with your ID and your password, and is sending "spam" E-mail,

Change your password. Change your "secret-questions".

Then, contact Yahoo!, to get the "block" removed.

Suspicious Activity on Yahoo Email Account

Most probably, someone is using your account to send spam mail.
First and foremost, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY. Use a strong password - with letters, numbers, symbols and long enough to make it difficult to guess. Also, notify Yahoo of the problem.
Still, it may take a while before Yahoo "white-lists" you again.
All the best.
