It's mentioned in the ISC diary today - I got one too, but I haven't
seen any good theories about what it is. It could just be a mistake on
behalf of the spammers.

If you feel like it, you could note the IP address it originated from
and look it up at openrbl.org to see which, if any, block lists the IP
is in. if it's in the CBL or Spamhaus XBL, that usually indicates a
compromised host.

cheers,
Jamie
