    YA spam vector?

    Just had an email from telling me that my new account was ready for use. Looks like some spammers are trying to abuse people that way too. Simon said he'd got one too.

    Yep, me too. They must have taken the email from the mailing lists, since it was registered with the address that I use for m-l.

    Can you publish the headers? It would be helpful to see how they do this.

      Sorry, no. It's already been and gone.
