this is more puzzling than troublesome, but seems to me it could become a problem. In the last two days, I have gotten two emails that appear to have been forwarded to me from the email at which I am receiving them! I've copied the long header address information below (with my address changed to protect the innocent!), but I have no idea what any of it means. My concern is: will this be the new way that spammers get through our filters, by using our own addresses as the sending address? Can anyone dissect the info below and tell me what it means? I'm kind of curious if it tells me anything about where this is really coming from. Has anyone else had this problem?
