No nothing to do with us. I have no idea how they do this. Can someone who knows how to deal with this tell me how to report them:

Return-path: Envelope-to: [email protected]: Mon, 21 Feb Return-path: Envelope-to: [email protected]: Mon, 21 Feb 2005 14:52:02 -0500Received: from mail by nac01.kinetichost.net with spam-scanned (Exim 4.42) id 1D3Jay-0004c5-8r for [email protected]; Mon, 21 Feb 2005 14:52:02 -0500Received: from cpc2-bror4-5-0-cust203.brom.cable.ntl.com ([81.111.166.203] helo=your-fc7d82vxwt) by nac01.kinetichost.net with smtp (Exim 4.42) id 1D3Jav-0004bt-UW for [email protected]; Mon, 21 Feb 2005 14:51:52 -0500Date: Mon, 21 Feb 2005 19:53:07 +0000To: [email protected]: Notify about using the e-mail account.From: [email protected]: MIME-Version: 1.0Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="--------aarprurwubbkljauxjua"X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 2.64 (2004-01-11) on nac01.kinetichost.netX-Spam-Level: X-Spam-Status: No, hits=0.3 required=10.0 tests=NO_REAL_NAME autolearn=no version=2.64

I have no idea how they do that, but I've had the same thing happen to me with my pop mail address quite a few times.

Looking at the return path, I would think it could be the lead back or the kinetichost.net which could be the ISP maybe?

Another thing is that some of it is not very good English.

Freebie_Fetish, was there a link to their anti virus software? That could be another way to find the source.
