Well, I am a real person, but I didn't send the message.  One good clue 
(to me) is that the mailer is Outlook Express 6.0.  I run Mac OS X using 
Mozilla 1.4 (I do have Outlook Express 9.0 for Mac but it isn't 
configured for SMTP).  Also I think it says that the originating server 
is which lacks a reverse DNS.

I'm getting a slew of those bogus emails, but at least my system won't 
be sending any.
