[SpamCop-List] Sigh... New way of sending spam...

Just got a 419 spam that was sent by using Yahoo's Announce Address. I've
used Yahoo for years and never noticed that particular feature. (Is that
just because it's not something I would ever use--or is it because it's new?
I'm guessing new since I can't believe spammers wouldn't have exploited it
earlier if it had been available.) Looks like the spammer could just import
his address list and then send out these announcements. It would be a little
labor intensive but hey, Yahoo popped this thing straight into my Inbox so a
lot more messages would actually get through.
At any rate, this is the first time I've ever seen spam sent as an address
change message. Unfortunately, I'm sure it won't be the last...
