Received two yesterday that looked very convincing, delivery failure notice from "Hotmail Mailer Demon". It showed me as emailing a very strange hotmail address as the receiver who could not be reached!

Needless to say no such emails were ever sent from my account (yahoo).

Some spammer was kind enough to use your address as the return to address in his spam campaign, so that you'd get all his returns.

Happens to me quite often….

This Rob still gets the odd 6-7000 returned Emails from that nice spammer who started used the Garrison domain. Can be fun sorting through my Emails when it happens – down to about once a week now.
