Can someone explain why this spam has an ATS-ish address? I almost never use this email address so I don't even know how this spam came about. Is anyone else getting this?

Perhaps one of the more tech savy folks can explain it, but it looks like the email address was spoofed. Hopefuly you didn't open the attachment. Odd that whomever sent it (seems more like a malicous attack than
) used the ATS address...

Can you trace it via the .er?

Typical spammer technique. I got one like this one also. You put your "jonna@" ATS email in a public page somewhere on the Internet, it was found by spammer's site scrapers. When sending the message, the spammer's server automatically changes the reply-to email address to [something]@[target-server], in this case, "Washington.Mutual@srv01.denyignorance.com" This prevents bounced messages on servers that deny relaying (ours). The .er data, shows the actual orgin of the message.

Opps! Didn't even see the "srv01". I must need coffee.

It attempted to open it within the email, but failed.

Thanks SO. I do not recall ever doing do, but perhaps it got passed around accidentally by someone I converse with. I'll go back and edit the original message.
