No, it'd just be typical

BTW, I've gotten one of these with a forged REJECTED mail subject:

Subject: DELIVERY FAILURE: Recipient user name jim (jim at lambda.com)
	not unique.  Several matches found in Name & Address Book.

It seems to me that the system spreading it is sending it to me
directly, with the mesage attached, since, IIRC, those kind of rejects
simply return the headers, not the body and attachments.

  Hardly any sets of 10K words can be adequately described with pictures.
