Duplicate emails

There is another person with the exact same email as I.
I've received some of their emails and concerned they received some of mine.

It is impossible for 2 people to have the same email address since there is only one password. Anyone can make a mistake giving out the address causing mail to go to you. Just reply back and say wrong address.

In 26 days (January 31, 2019) the Classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. At that time you'll be upgraded to the newest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail depending on your browser's compatibility.

Different passwords yes but I've received her home security emails, doctor emails and others. Yes I've contacted them and deleted emails.
I'm considering closing this email and opening a new account.

Just because you are receiving email with someone else's name does not mean they have the same email address. That is impossible. There is only one password and you can control it. Someone just has the wrong address.
