    I am concerned that someone knew my email password and was reading my messages. (I've changed the password) Does Yahoo log all login sessions for an account, and possibly the IP address for the person that logged in? Yahoo, Hotmail etc I would think require a court order to give such information.

    Is there another way to trace who logged into my Yahoo account?

    Hello,

    No, I have never seen IP address login activity logged by Yahoo and available for members to see.

    If you get a Gmail account you'll be notified if you are logged in from more than one location at the bottom of the page.
