No.  That's what I thought initially, but by looking at the bounce
messages I determined that it is, in fact, bouncing real list messages.

The apache mail server has been swamped as well.  There have been
particular problems with some addressess like apache at apache org, which
exists in practically every file produced by the Apache Software

virus searches the hard drive for addresses.)
