These are just spam e-mails hoping you respond, just delete
#2
you need to change your password, yahoo got hacked in october and never told anyone and still wont admit it
#3
your account hasn't been hacked. a spammer has simply used your email address in the "sent from" field in their spam. their spam then hit a dead email account and the mailer daemon bounced it back to you since it thought your account sent it.

this happens so much it is of no concern - and it is technically very very easy to do.

ps

you might want to delete your e-mail details from the OP lol

Cheers for the help guys.
