Someone Clicked on an Attachment

Someone who has my email address (an old one even) in their address book clicked on an attachment they shouldn’t have yesterday. I know because I got all the bounced spam that was sent out in my name – a few hundred emails, which you don’t want to mark as spam since you need to know when real emails bounce.

Here is how the email headers look:

Date: Sun, 06 Apr 2008 15:24:10 +0000
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
    boundary="—-=_NextPart_000_0005_01C89809.021A2DE9"
X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.3138
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2900.3198

So it’s someone using Outlook Express. I don’t use that of course, I have a Mac. Others in their address book probably also had this happen to them.

I’m not mad – just a little annoyed and just want to show everyone an example of how other people are affected when you click on attachments that you shouldn’t click on. Be careful out there.
