Yahoo is one of the email senders that should be relatively immune to
email spoofing. Assuming that email server admins are doing their job

Every real Yahoo email is signed with DomainKeys. Receiving email
servers should be checking the signatures. If it doesn't match up it
should go into spam quarantine automatically. From there a user can free
real email manually and tell the sender to send his email through the
correct server instead of using some other SMTP relay.
