    If Yahoo sends you an email it will address you by your real name, never as Dear User, Dear Yahoo Account Holder, or Dear Yahoo Mail User. Yahoo sends emails from a @cc.yahoo-inc.com address only. Yahoo will never send you an email asking that you change, update, or verify your account information by clicking on a link in the email.
