ABC> Has anyone else seen spam with spamtrap return addresses?

Given that spammers tend to rotate through their address list to alter
the smtp from address, it would follow that at some point or other one
of the spamtrap addresses in their list would be used as the source
address in a message they sent.  This one just happened to go to you.

Or it could be Klez attacking someone who has the spamtrap address in
their address book.

That's my guess.
