Subject Re: [SPAM/Virus] Malicious mail from Struts-user users?

Literally hundreds of times a day, from struts-user, cocoon-user, 
jakarta-general, as well as such lumnaries as Craig McClanahan and 
Martin Cooper.

Most viruses out there these days forge the sender emails and gather 
them from the same address pool where they get recipient addresses, 
so it's not surprising that they seem to come from familiar senders.

Besides possibly inspecting the mail headers, there's really no way 
to trace these back to the originating machine, so all you can really 
do is have all your anti-virus software up to date (or use a Mac! :^)
