I woke up to find over 30 of them lurking in my Yahoo account. Yahoo only give
you 6MB quota, the messages are around 150KB each, and whilst Yahoo do provide
a filtering system there's no option to completely delete a message - only to
move it to trash, which still counts as part of your quota. More than a little
annoying, to say the least...

My other non-web-based accounts seem to have escaped remarkably well however.
