IP address tracking at Web-based e-mail clients

By mysuperplace ·
Hi!
I have a feeling that someone is accessing my YAHOO Web-based e-mail account.
Is it possible to track IP address which accessed my Web-based e-mail client?
Many thanks
Olivia

You could ask Yahoo

I have a feeling they won't give you data
from their server logs though. Since
authentication of your user name & password
is performed on Yahoo's servers, they're
the only party that legally can have that
information.

Thanks a lot

Thanks a lot for your answers - I'll try Yahoo. It's not a keystroke - it's someone is reading my e-mail whilst I am away. like, on holidays, and when I log-on from an internet cafe, all my new messages appear as "read". I'll probably change my password!

Glad to help. That could happen because of a keylogger.

jdclyde is absolutely right about that, for
sure. Think about it: a program
logs your keystrokes and
sends them to ... ?, who then uses your
user name and password to login to your
account. If either of us is right, we
probably both are.

You probably have a keystroke logger on your system

Get to another pc and change your password.

Then do a good scan of your system for malware and keystroke loggers.

One sign is to look at how much memory is in use at bootup. Average for XP seems to be between 180 and 190 M of ram, assuming you have an Anti-Virus running.

Install ZoneAlarm and watch for anything that is trying to access the internet.
