Recovering from spam resulting from compromised account



Thanks Matthew. Sadly, most of the bounce responses have URLs that
point you to a help page that doesn't have further contact information
or just tells you to wait it out.

e.g.

http://postmaster.yahoo.com/421-ts03.html
http://www.google.com/mail/help/bulk_mail.html

I'll do the requisite digging and start contacting postmasters.
