It may be becoming a moot point, as they suddenly stopped here
yesterday morning.

However, I quarantined them all while they were coming in, and
every one that I got had either the number 969 or 5556.

Here's an example (e-mails munged).

Date: Tue, 06 Jun 2006 17:28:46 -0500
To: "Webmaster" <webmaster (at) elgin.edu>
From: "Webmaster" <webmaster (at) elgin.edu>
Subject: 57657
Message-ID: <fpbrsqkstlwrorhggko at elgin.edu>
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit



They all have identical To/From lines.
The real name matches the local part, with the first letter capitalized.
Content-Type and Content-Transfer-Encoding are also identical in all
There are 2 blank lines at the end.

Other than the 969 vs. 5556, the body does not vary at all.
