possibly a phone call to yahoo explaining your situation. Other things
to look for, maybe this person sending the e-mail is withing your
network, tossing a packet sniffer on your outbound traffic might be an
idea. might even think about asking the victim whom, they may have given
that address to.

hope it helps

One of our users has received questionable and possibly life threatening
emails from a yahoo account that was created recently.  They have
approached us to find out as much as we can pertaining to the person
sending it.

Of course, we are not YAHOO so we cannot determine anything about the
mail other than the content.

How can we find out who sent this?
