  True, to a certain extent. But I do get quite a lot of spam with
either the Reply To: address or a reply addy embedded in the body that
IS a Yahoo account. Or Hotmail, or recently mostly MSN

  I've long since quit looking at where the crap came from, and started
targetting where they want me to *answer*. Their whole point is to sell
you something, so they have to give you a real point of contact. That's
where the real trail starts.
