I think it's even more interesting to note that an intermediate step was:
"Received: from pcug.org.au (supreme.pcug.org.au [188.8.131.52])"
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'.
