that could occur when
a. student machines are botted (for institutions not blocking outbound  
port 25)
b. student and alumni accounts are compromised by phishers

(both of these just for the purposes of sending spam from well  
connected, reputable institutions.)

and then consumers really do complain...

i'm told (not just by yahoo insiders) that the forms at

postmaster.yahoo.com

actually do work, eventually.
