I used to get spam mail on addresses that were ancient, the problem with email addresses are they are out there forever if you have ever used them on-line.

Even if you only used them to friends, they sit in address books and if one of those friends gets infected all the email addresses are up for grabs.

So I doubt it was obtained from your system.

Now THAT is an interesting thought - that the association of two of my addresses occurred when someone else's address book was compromised. that hadn't occurred to me at all. hmmm. bad as that is, from my point of view it would be better than my own system being compromised. in the two or so weeks since it happened, there's been no reoccurrence.

Thanks,
p.
