I agree with Howard here, I don't think this is a mis-configuration,
but a harvest attempt. The "mailserver" is in different messages, and
I can't see how that could get misconfigured in a honest validation
server. My guess is that someone is trolling the archives, and
sending this back? Why, I have no idea, given they already can see
the sending address.

To prove that your message was sent by a human and not a computer,
visit the URL below and type in the alphanumeric text you will see
image. You will be asked to do this only once for this recipient.
Your message will be automatically deleted in a few days if you do not
confirm this request.
DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE. NO ONE WILL RECEIVE IT.
Note it says 'gmail.com mailserver'. Paul Ferguson reported to me
that the one
he saw said 'received by vt.edu mailserver'. Also note that the
has lost [email protected] - for both my note and Paul's (in fact,
Paul's actual posting and mine show [email protected] as being the
link, thus the "must be a nanog subscriber" conclusion).
Please, if you're going to use a C/R, at least learn how to
mailing lists you're on. And if you can't figure out how to do
do us all a favor and not try to run an operational network...
