Understood.  The odd thing is that, even if the headers were spoofed and the
sender email was completely random, what are the odds that the random or
spoofed sender address would be my client?

The only scenario I could think of would be that a mutual acquaintance has
the virus and it picked my client randomly as the sender from their address
book.  Does that seem consistent with MyDoom?
