I've gotten many such emails in recent months.  A relatively "new"
phenomenon in the etherworld in which a spammer adopts someone else's valid
mailer address and puts it in as the "from".  Most contain some sort of
virus and have been identified thusly by the free antivirus
program I've been using ever since Sir Myers called it to our attention
several years ago (thank you, Bob).
