    From different yahoo email accounts, i continue to receive junk/spam emails with this as the sender:

    [email protected] .SYNTAX-ERROR.

    Possibly someone using semicolons instead of commas as address separators making it unparseable for some. If it's spam then someones probably doing it deliberately. You've scanned them for viruses? Do they seem to have attachments?
