Yahoo, AOL (which I think is Yahoo now, too), Bellsouth, and AT&T seem to be particularly vulnerable. I get a lot of those. I rarely if ever see it from people with Gmail or Comcast accounts. If it's someone I actually know, I'll get in touch with them one way or the other and let them know that they been hacked. A lot of these are elderly friends who might not check their email regularly.
I actually have email accounts through Yahoo and Gmail, for when I needed to be able to set up some other service from Yahoo or Google, but I don't use them for actually sending or receiving email, and I certainly don't let them upload my address book.
