Re: [vox] Spam question

Hi guys

Thanks a bunch for the help.

I looked up the info on the Klez worm and, much as I'd like to believe
that that's what it is, it doesn't seem to match.  So I must conclude that
some bastard is using my e-mail as a return address.  This pisses me off.
:(  I've alerted the guy who runs my alias, hopefully he won't yank it.

Anyhoo.  Here's one of the headers, per Rod's request; I did an nslookup
on the origin IPs, and they match.  If there's any other tricks, I'd love
to hear them.

FWIW: ana.ng@tmbg.org is my alias; ussenterprise.ufp.org is the server
that translates alias->real address (nmcarlson@ucdavis.edu).
