    Messages sent from Yahoo! Customer Care will always show a purple Y! logo in your inbox to indicate that the message was sent from an official Yahoo! source.

    Messages sent from Yahoo! Customer Care will always use "@cc.yahoo-inc.com" as the domain extension.

    If it does not have these report it as spam.

    It means use and update the account or they're cancelling it.
