Mhm, I figured someone got a hold of your machine. I thought about
sending you a message warning you of the apparent infection, but
figured plenty others would probably have done so already (and I'd
just be giving my personal email address to a spambot).

The problem with e-mail is that it isn't secured.
I can just send an e-mail right now stating I am Steve Donovan or Bill Gates or any address I find on the Net. We can put anything in the From field. I don't think SMTP servers check it is correct.

For the anecdote, we received a similar spam (from a so called SD) on the SciTE mailing list as well...
