Tactical baseball bat at close range? :) I and a number of coworkers are getting similar bounces, except the spammers are actually using our full email addresses as the from address. The first few cases of this, I wrote off to things like KLEZ...but recently I've gotten actual spam bounces where my work email address was the original from. I suppose it could possibly still be something like KLEZ and it's grabbing a spam from their inbox and sending that out with a forged from.
