    Is your Yahoo email address the same as your hotmail address (the part before @)?

    If so, I think it's just a trick spammers use to get you to try to read their email.

    If not, then that's pretty weird and I have no clue how that could happen.

    I reported it it Yahoo and MSN along with the urls in the ads!

    Yahoo! just tore up their anti-spam and privacy policies, check your settings and read this article at the Register for more info.

    Yes but the IP addresses in the full headers normally give it away.
