I run them through http://spamcop.net - this site has a pretty good header
analysis program, and you can also send out a pseudo-anonymous report to the
originator's abuse desk.
If the emails are legitimately coming from Yahoo!, Hotmail, and other
web-based services, there are ways of identifying the point of origin. In
Hotmail's case, IIRC you look for the "X-Originating-IP" header (BTW, this
is also an easy way to see if someone is "spoofing" a Hotmail address).

"Note to spammers: my 'delete' key is connected to YOUR ISP.
Also, if you send me UCE, I reserve the right to post your spew
on my Web site, with the appropriate color commentary, so that
others may have a good laugh at your expense."
