    This looks like a "spoofed" email to me, where our address is being used as a reply to address, but does not originate from our mail server. These are rather common as spiders go out on the web and comb for addresses that are posted on websites, or viruses that people get infected with search through the infected person's address book to find new addresses to spoof with. Believe it or not, I've got mails with viruses attached that claim to be from some of you! I know that these are spoofs and that nobody is sending them out directly, but it shows you how viruses acquire e-mail addresses to use.

    If you wouldn't mind, please mail me the message in it's entirety so that we can examine the full header. I guarantee you that viruses aren't originating with my authentic e-mail address, as I don't use Microsoft Windows! :roll:
