Your computer might have been compromised and has become a botnet. Run both Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes on your computer and see if it finds any infections.

Also, change your password on your yahoo email account right away.

Blocked emails


Yahoo! Mail can block all mail from up to 500 email addresses. All mail from these senders will be automatically deleted before you see it.Do not let the high number of potential addresses to block lure you into fighting spam with this, though. Spammers can use a fresh address (or domain) for just about every message.
Use the list of blocked senders for individual senders whose messages you don't want to receive but can't stop easily. Instead of deleting every incoming mail manually, you can have Yahoo! Mail do the job.

Get rid of spam


Unsolicited junk e-mail, or spam, is an unwelcome and often offensive byproduct of the Internet's success. Although there's no guarantee you can avoid all spam, there are ways to avoid looking at most of it.Instructions

  1. Basic prevention
    • 1 If you're already getting spam messages, check with your Internet service provider to see whether it has a spam-prevention option that scans your incoming e-mail for known spammers.
    • 2 If you're lucky enough not to be getting spam now, then sign up for a second (free) e-mail address from a service such as Yahoo or Hotmail. Use this address exclusively for e-commerce, mailing-list subscriptions and bulletin-board postings of any kind. Reserve your main e-mail address for private e-mail to and from friends.
    Rule filtering
    • 1 Create an e-mail folder called Suspected Spam.
    • 2 Use the filtering feature in your e-mail program to create rules that redirect spam messages to your Suspected Spam folder. Most spam is not addressed to its recipient by name.
    • 3 Define a rule for incoming mail that says, "If my name appears in the To: or cc: field, then move this message to the Inbox." The procedure for defining rules varies among e-mail programs, so you should consult your program's Help feature to learn exactly how this works.
    • 4 Define individual rules to catch e-mail that isn't addressed to you personally but that you nevertheless want to receive, such as messages from lists you've subscribed to. Have these rules redirect the relevant messages to the Inbox or to special folders that you have created for mail from those sources--for instance: "If the Sender field includes 'MyList,' then send this message to the MyList folder."
    • 5 Define a final rule that sends all other e-mail that hasn't already been redirected by one of your other rules to the Suspected Spam box. For instance, a rule that says, "If the Sender field isn't 'XYXYXYXYY,' then move this message to the Suspected Spam folder" would work as a catchall.

  • Never reply to a spam message, even to request that your name be removed from the list. That just tells the spammers that your address is valid.

My yahoo was working from 1day ago at 4:30 Am June 04 , 2011 and suddenly try to open my account again there are amessage told me that your account has been locked for security reasons i don't know...


Usually there are several reasons why it happens the way it happened :
1) Someone is trying to gain access & lock your account. 2) A person tries to guess your password & ID by attempting more than 3 times or so.
But no worries, it's a normal security precaution which will eventually locked the account to prevent the unauthorized user from getting in successfully. This lock down usually will last 24hours after the failed attempts made by the unauthorized user. Go to this main Yahoo! logging site & insert the correct ID & password of your account. The first attempt may prove failure, second attempts will lead you to the "word verification system" which is to make sure that you are not "bots". Follow all those procedures provided by Yahoo!. 48hours after visiting that Yahoo! main logging site, your account should return as normal.
**NOTE: Remember to clear out your ID every time signing out of any sites that preserve your personal informations such as Facebook, Yahoo! Messenger @ Mail & etc. to prevent them from being hack or so.

This mean that your account has been picked by a spammer and the only thing you can do is contact Yahoo and let them know. But first change your password for your account to stop it from going any further.

Sending emails out that i did not write NO SUBJECT


What do you mean by "sending emails out that you did not write"? Did somebody inform you that they received an email from you, but you did not actually write it?

If yes, then I believe that you are not the one who sent that email. It is a spammer who did that. This is one of the common tactics of spammers to hide their true origin. But there's no need for you to worry. Because your email address has not been compromised. It's just that the spammer used your email address to spam other people.

However, Yahoo! has a spam filter, and I'm sure that there will come a time that Yahoo! admins will trace these illegal activities.

Thank you and good luck!

Display photo from mail


Is the email with the photo in your spam folder? Yahoo won't display images from senders that it thinks are spammers. Try moving the email to your inbox and viewing the photo.

Yahoo instant messanger


Those are spammers and that problems has been with us for a very long time now. No one has been able to come up with a complete solution on how battle those spammers. Most of them crawls by the use of malwares into your computer gathering some info specifically your email add so they can send website invites to your account. If you happen to receive those spam message again just click "report as spam" so that they will be block from your account.

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.
