This is best if the files are compressed as zip, tar, rar, pst, or some other bulk format. You do not need to zip the file if it is already bulk unless you are compressing for size.
Avoid using ' \ / " in the file names
Files with viruses will usually not be processed. Sometimes if a zip file contains a virus file we can still process the rest, but not always.
We have been unable to process certain types of .7z files, this may be a temporary problem.

Habu (Updated: 01.25.09)This is an extension is for the Thunderbird mail client. You can download the extension below. It is meant to help report spam and illicit e-mails properly, quickly and to the right places. It will also help those that may not be as technical savy as some, and don't understand how to give an admin the needed header information. Please note this program will NOT stop spam. This is meant solely to report spam to companies and law enforcement so they can prosecute spammers. Reporting does help cut back spam for everyone, but it will take time. (ibiblio.org)

More Information and Download
It is possible to download, zip and forward yahoo mail without opening any of it. This is a somewhat tedious process but reduces the exposure to viruses and pop-ups.
YahooPops Also submitted by Knujon member, YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 access to Yahoo! Mail. This application is more like a gateway. It provides a POP3 server interface at one end to talk to email clients and an HTTP client (browser) interface at the other which allows it to talk to Yahoo! One Knujon user has recomended this as a better solution than Mr. Postman since turning SpamGuard off and then using the Mr. Postman downloads legitimate email in addition to spam. YahooPops can be used to download ONLY the "Bulk Mail" folder by configuring the software under its "Download Folders" option, to only download mail from the System Folders: Bulk Mail. (Tips provided by a Knujon member)
Mr. Postman Thanks to a KnujOn member we have information on Mr. Postman which allows webmail to be accessed with Outlook. Mr Postman retrieves Yahoo mail (among others) and sends it to the Outlook Inbox where you can apply filters and have messages automatically forwarded to Knujon, for example. This works with the free version of Yahoo (but not the "beta" version). The program runs as a background process and whenever you do a send/receive, Outlook polls Mr Postman and Mr. Postman in turn goes to the yahoo site and pulls down your mail for you which eliminates the need to go there at all. I turned SPAM Guard (yeah, right) off so all messages go to the inbox now and have not had to actually log into the Yahoo site for quite some time using this. There were some problems with the original Yahoo script that Mr. Postman uses and although I believe the download has been updated, you may need to go to the help sections where you will find discussions and links to the downloads you need.
Thanks to Triade Systems there is now

You may send all your junk mail in one zipped file. If you have many junk emails, it is not necessary to send them to us one at a time! In a desktop email client you may drag all your emails to a folder and compress them using a program like Winzip. Send the zipped file to email@example.com OR upload it. Zip files over 5 megs may be rejected by your mail server.
Winzip may be downloaded free here.
Remember to set the "binary" option when automating FTP, otherwise files may become corrupt in transfer.

More Information About Headers
We do not look at headers or trace IP origin on a large scale, but in select cases. We're not trying to reinvent the wheel, we are fully aware that services like SpamCop are already doing this job and doing it well. We encourage everyone to use many services to fight this problem on multiple levels. In the future we may work with other services to provide 100% protection. However, for the moment we are focused on our own model which is not so much on the junk mail traffic (ISP abuse, botnets, zombies) but more on the fraud and illegal activity going on behind the scenes. Reduction in junk mail is a byproduct of that effort. This is not to say we are not concerned with botnets and zombies, we are and as time permits we research that as well. So, if KnujOn users send full headers along, we use them. But we are not requesting or requiring that people do send the headers.
