Subject: RE: BS: Spam mail pretending to come from myself
I've had this for years. Another trick they use is to have your address as the originating addy, thus the 'bounce' comes 'back' to you. There seems little point in trying to contact the 'bouncer', as there is nothing they can do except block you, and there is even the possibility that the 'bounce message' may even be fake, waiting for you to respond, proving that your addy is alive.
