    Due to the advent of spam trojan horses, it may be nearly impossible.
    Contact Yahoo, they'll terminate the account and investigate. Also submit
    the emails to your federal cybercrime/police authority (FBI in the US).

    One of our users has received questionable and possibly life threatening
    emails from a yahoo account that was created recently. They have
    approached
    us to find out as much as we can pertaining to the person sending it.

    Of course, we are not YAHOO so we cannot determine anything about the mail
    other than the content.

    How can we find out who sent this?
