FWIW,

I'm having a feeling that someone harvested a bunch of adresses, possibly
from NANOG, and is using them as the sender address in pretend-to-be KLEZ
spams.. I have received several bounces lately, several of them appearing
to be KLEZ, all with me as the original sender - and yet, there's no
chance I was ever infected with KLEZ (No windows boxes here...)
