advertising crap. (Installing Firefox and the AdBlock extension will
probably let you avoid it quite handily.)
If this is happening using a local email client on your PC (like
Eudora, Outlook Express, etc.) then you might well have some sort of
spyware infection. I'd recommend getting a copy of AdAware from:
and running a scan to see if it finds anything.
It could also be that Yahoo have started putting adverts in HTML emails
from Yahoo Groups. Try logging into your Yahoo Groups account and
changing the preferences to specify plain-text emails only (turn off
HTML emails), assuming there's an option to do so (I haven't looked,
but it's pretty common).
