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

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

**************************************************** 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 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
