If you are sending your mail by visiting http://mail.yahoo.com via a web browser, then mail can't be being redirected to your network admin.

However, your admin might be checking all mail type data baing sent using a packet sniffer or similar. If this is the case sign up for a gmail account as this is done over a secure web connection (HTTPS) which yahoo MIGHT not be.

If you are using an e-mail client such as Outlook express or Thunderbird, then your admin might be using a smarthost or mail relay to redirect your mail going out through port 25 - double check the BCC field as well to make sure it's not already filled in though. One way round this is to check if yahoo offers secure e-mail on an alternative port; either SSL or TLS should work fine.

Thanks for the replay.
I am using http://mail.yahoo.com via a web browser not Outlook express or Thunderbird. That's why i am a bit confuse that how my mail is rediracted to the Network Administrator inbox.

By packet sniffer do you mean that the administrator will get packets one by one  to check it or the administrator will get  my whole email in inbox??
