Default What it this?

I got a strange email to my yahoo account. No address for return. Tried to reply. No address to reply to. I copied and pasted the only info from the address I could find. Any help as to where it came from and what it means? Is someone spying on my account? I think I may be paranoid, but it seems strange. Please someone ease my fears.

It is mail that has been spoofed. I don't think Yahoo lets you see all the mail headers so you have no way of tracing it. Also, the link you supplied does not work because we have to login to view it!

Hmmm, it just sounds like an e-mail that has got a bit lost - if that happens! If it were bad then there'd be dozens of them and they'd annoy you more! I wouldn't be worried about it! Just one of those things that happens!
