Unfortunately I can't do much to help here, I've no experience with
this type of problem.

I haven't seen anything unusual with messages coming from this mailing list, so
I suspect that it is a problem with your account.

Yahoo! has a lot of resources for cleaning up after your account has been
compromised, this one looks like a good place to start:
