| If you handle your mail server, chances are you could trace it back in

a) I don't follow;
b) I don't _think_ I do (I have no understanding of
how e-mail works): I fetchmail(1) from my ISPs
POP3 to my local SMTP (`postfix'); and
c) the last thing I want to do (unless the e-mail
can be proven valid) is reply to it, since I
don't want to confirm to slimeballs (spammers)
it has a valid e-address.
nonetheless, I did have a quick look in the mail logs I
know about, and nothing interesting seemed to be there.
thanks for the suggestion, I hadn't thought of it.
