you must be a very famous person :]

it has happened to me as well, but only when some of my
windoze friends get infected and the virus starts sending
emails from their addressbooks.

security-wise it is interesting, since a mailing list only
authenticates emails based on the validity of the 
originating email address. We could have an extra check
for the originating IP address or hostname but that would
limit some people who travel around.

interesting indeed.
