Is this a scam email pretending to be from yahoo? Help!?

Earlier today I got this e-mail from the e-mail address mehdibeedel@yahoo.com and this is what it says.

****************************************************Dear user,

**************************************************** I know about fake e-mails asking you to verify your account and then they take all of your personal information. I'm scared if that'll happen to me. The message looks legit, but I still don't know what to do because I haven't logged in unsuccessfully several times because I only check my e-mail on my iPhone. So does this mean also that someone figured out my address. I'm really worried right now and don't know what to do. So, should I trust it?

    That's not from Yahoo, it's a phishing scam to hack your account

    ALL emails from Yahoo will have a purple Y logo to the left of the sender's name in your Inbox, will be from an @cc.yahoo-inc.com address and will always address you by your name. Yahoo will also NEVER ask you to click on a link in an email to activate or validate your account
