Might be any bug in Yahoo Mail System and Yahoo need to fix this.


  1. We need to be more careful about these types of situations so we don't misunderstand anything. But it's also suspicious how Yahoo is functioning a bit twisted right now. I once had a similar experience but I did not look into it any further thinking it was just a one time thing.

  2. I just got a similar notification, only it showed an 'internal' IP address ( which is impossible for anyone to use as an external IP... weird...

  3. I am experiencing that kind of problem too.Yahoo detected suspicious activity when I tried to log in, but I viewed my recent history log in settings, it showed there my own IP address.Is someone remotely accessing our e-mail?
