I got two variants that slipped past my filters overnight:

Yahoo! groups
tmatt087dten@yahoo.com has invited you to join Build_Instant_Money_Now on Yahoo! Groups, the best way to discover and share information and advice with others.
Google Calendar
Description: Dear Good Friend,
I am very happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner in London,Presently,I'm in saudi arabia for the purpose of investing my own share of the money.

An interesting way to deliver spam. It reminds me a bit of a key weakness of DJB's IM2000, where the message availability notifications can be used to carry spam payloads regardless of their intended purpose.

I've now had two requested appointment spams via Yahoo Calendar. The first time I reported it to the abuse team (which I found in a locked filing cabinet in the basement) and they're allegedly still working on it.
