Hey! Is this mail list still going? So quiet.
Lately I've been seeing a lot of new email attacks, where the email looks
like a bounce from another server and really strange, even SPAMCop thinks
it's a bounce.
This is what it looks like:

The full mail is attached.
*-*-* Anti_Virus: No Virus was found
*-*-* INLANDRESTAURANTS- Anti_Virus Service
and the headers:
Return-Path: <info at paidforsurf.com>

Then there is a file attached to it, obviously a virus:
I happen to know that Inland has no email protection, because I asked them
many times if I could install procmail and they keep turning me down. Is
there something wrong with their mail server or maybe someone on their
network has a virus (like that never happens)?
This header does look like it came from Inland, the IP address belongs to
the mail server and it also acts as an Internet gateway.
I hope I gave you enough info, if not, just ask.
