      Whenever you have questions about an e-mail like this -- be it from Yahoo, Google, eBay, Amazon, your bank, your loan company, etc. -- the BEST COURSE OF ACTION is to open the account webpage yourself by typing the address into a window, and verify changes, your password, etc.

      NEVER click links in a suspicious e-mail.

      And I find nowadays that almost no company makes changes to your account without also posting some sort of notice or message about it in their Accounts area.

      Hmm, that does sound odd.... But if you've already deleted the ID, I
      wouldn't worry about it. Not sure what to make of it, though....
