Can you save the spreadsheet as a csv or tab separated file or
such, then use perl or awk or such to output
addressa, addressb, addressc or
A B <addressa>, C D <addressb> ?
Can that sort of format be pasted into yahoo?
Maybe this will work 
awk -F , {'printf("\"%s %s\" <%s>, ", $1, $2, $3);'}
If the first column is first name, second column is last name,
and third column is email address.
