Hi Frank

Does this make sense in any way?

Not that I would assume that spamming makes sense   ;)  but maybe
this spammer just tries to fake the sender using your address - ?

A customer of mine recently receives this kind of bouncer spam,
and I told him the spammer is simply faking the sender address...
