I've finally gotten to the final stages of, what looks to be right now an ugly, bloated piece of code, but what actually is, is a perl script that logs into your Yahoo for you and posts all your spam in the Bulk folder to the Email Spam section of the site. 

Right now I'm cleaning up the code and beta testing it (lots of testing to make sure it doesn't go haywire and spam the site :P), but as soon as I get the code cleaned up, I'll post it up here for everyone to use.

A note, however, it's still undergoing development and should only be used with supervision.  There aren't any bugs right now as far as I can tell, but the best way to find bugs is by using it a lot :)

Basically I'm posting ahead of time to ask if anyone has any suggestions for the script or future email providers to adapt it to.  I wanted to write it for hotmail originally, but they have some crazy javascript madness that's preventing me from finding where to send what variables to log in and so on.

Anyways, the current script will end up posting spam similar to this form:

Some of the headers may be blank depending on the email.  Also, I change any http://'s to hxxp:// in the content just to be sure I'm not linking to anything harmful.  Is there anything else that should go under consideration?  I'm thinking about having it delete the email from the bulk mail after posting it, but might leave it and just set it up to run every x days (where x is the number of days Yahoo keeps spam in the box).

Edit: It's taking longer than I expected, because it's having difficulty posting to the site.  It can log in and browse around fine, but can't post.  Maybe I should ask the forum spammers how they do it, eh? ;)

Looks good, I had used quote tags like you have for the message body, however I manually added [nobbc][/nobbc] tags, to stop the forum software from making the URLs that are in the message live. So you might want that to be code tags instead. Apart from that you might want to remove your email address from the headers.

Looks good :)
