    Too often I get messages from some sysadmin telling me the following:

    [email protected] on Thu, 15 Apr 2004 09:07:09 -0600
    The recipient name is not recognized
    The MTS-ID of the original message is: c=us;a= ;p=city of el
    paso,;l=TPOL0404151507263TXB32
    MSEXCH:IMS:City of El Paso, Texas:CITY_OF_EL_PASO:TPOL 0 (000C05A6)
    Unknown Recipient


    The names change but the message is the same. How can I stop it?

    they seem to be spoofed addresses sending out infections so make certain you don't open any and they will stop eventually..
