Did these come from Barracuda boxes?
Blowback like this is hardly new or legitimate as the From and Sender
header addresses are often (usually) forged in spam, and it does not do
anything useful to reply to them. The forged addresses may just be
something scraped from the address book of a machine running the Microsoft
virus, Windows, or a deliberate ``Joe Job'' where a spammer is targeting
somebody who may have caused them problems.
