I think it's even more interesting to note that an intermediate step was:

	"Received: from pcug.org.au (supreme.pcug.org.au [])"

Does this mean that machine is an "open relay"?  Perhaps we can lend a
hand to our sister organisation...

I got quite a number of copies of this spam (Allah be praised!).
Interestingly, some of them came to me direct from 'verestar', but most
appeared to have been relayed via 'supreme.pcug.org.au'.
