Possible fake email from Yahoo - Account closure
I received an email allegedly from Yahoo informing me that my account will be closed unless I upgrade to the latest version. I made screen shots of the emails and would like to send it to you for verification. Or better yet forward the emails to you, if I just know where to forward it to.

I received same email stating that I need to be verified or else all my messages will not be recovered anymore. But I noticed that the sender is using different yahoo logo and there some information link to some I know also. What shall we do to this kind of email?
I received a similar mail awhile ago:
29 Nov at 5:55 PM

The email sent from named: Yahoo but when you open the detail of the email shows this: firstname.lastname@example.org
And the Yahoo logo inside the message looks not real.
