odaman2 - I've ready many of your posts and sympathize with your situation.  I would truly recommend talking this out with your local police.  If they don't have the resources, move it up to county, or even state level.

Yahoo themselves can. But they'll want a court order before doing so. So, as michko said: you definitely have to take this up with the authorities (probably again as I understand).

As stated above, only law enforcement will be able to apprehend the information you requested. Leave it up to the professionals.

If they never send you a message or check email from the account you won't be able to trace them yourself.  You will have to contact Yahoo to get the IP address, and from there the ISP that owns the IP address.  As stated above, you will most likely have to have law enforcement involved to get the information.

Some ISPs are more willing than others to offer information.  Some will give information without requiring written requests and some will refuse to respect warrants.

Good luck with this.  I used to assist county law enforcement with cases like this.  To date, if there isn't an actual 'threat', it is very hard to get law enforcement involved in these types of situations.

This type of harassment is against yahoos policies.  As such, contacting them should be enough to have the information taken down.
