    I've gotten 3 emails (usually sent in the wee hours of the morning) from my own yahoo email address to my own yahoo email address. There is always a hyperlink in the email and 1 out of 3 times it has ended up in my Spam folder. After the first 2 times (within 24 hours) I changed my password, hoping that would solve the issue, but ~ 2 wks later I got the 3rd one. Any suggestions on how to either report this to Yahoo or should I just bite the bullet and delete this email acct and start over.... ? Thanks!

    Hello,

    It's a common spammer trick to forge the From: of an email and send an email from you to yourself or others in your domain.

    It is correct that these are going to your spam folder. Don't worry about deleting your email account. Everything is probably OK.
