Firstly unless there was something personal that has some application to you and lists something that only you know you have this is most likely one of the many Spoofed Yahoo Mails that has been going around recently about visiting Kiddy porn Sites or something similar and is actually the Sober Z variant of that Virus.

Even if you tracked the mail back to its alleged source I think you'll find someone as perplexed as you are and no knowledge of the message at all. The HotMail and Yahoo mailing systems are regularly Spoofed and you should ignore the bulk of mails from these sources.

But if you really want to do something you have the IP addresses and you can pass those onto the revel ant Authorities who have the power to access Yahoo's IP accounts and find out who was using that particular IP address at the time but honestly it is most likely a Bot [a poorly defended Server} pushing this junk out and you'll never likely to find the culprit.

Of course if there was something that named you personally other than the addressee you have grounds to act for Deformation and maybe even quite a few Federal Offenses so you have the ability to pass the E-Mail along to the Federal Policing Agency with a formal complaint and allow then to investigate the e-mail.

But no matter what you can not legally access the Yahoo IP addresses yourself as this requires a Court Order from an application by the Regulatory Authorities.
