I use yahoo from time to time, and I have seen very similar links.
Yahoo spreads its load over multiple servers. The IP block registration
for us.f514.mail.yahoo.com looks legitimate.

I have not figured out what the rand= portion of the URL is used for
by Yahoo; I -usually- only see it when I am using an older browser
and Yahoo has dropped back to an older interface version.
