Well, looks like we have a new method of spamming. Our server had about 
72000 of these. Took almost 4 minutes to delete them all.

The spammer puts the desired recipient in the "from" line, and sends it to 
a bogus account that's sure to bounce, and the server then bounces the spam 
to the "from" line.

I thought of it years ago, and thought "Nah!".

Guess I was wrong.
