backscatter is what happens if mail systems automaticly reply to forged  From: 
headers.
In this case the mail was never sent over any third party.  It claims to be 
bounceback from my own MTA, while in fact it never went through any MTA  
(directly sent from dialup).
I'm worried that this might be a new form of joe jobbing.  Ie somone sends out 
mails that look like bounceback from your machines.
