Not true as this happened several times in the last week which is why I'm
warning all of you.

I appreciate the warning.

But it's likely that it will be a one time occurrence...

Spammers, hackers and other criminals are using programs that search mailing
lists for valid addresses and routing info and then modify their own e-mail
headers to confuse the target/recipient and cover their tracks.

They normally just use the info once, discard it and spoof someone else.

They also substitute IP addresses in the routing headers so you may discover
that your company has it's IP server blacklisted as a spam source. It
happened to us.

I wish you luck in tracing the creep(s).

Subject: Stolen emails

Hello all,

It seems someone has stolen my email and is using it to send either junk
email or viruses, I have handed all information I have to our IT
department. So far there has been only one target (Charles Warner) whom I
do not know nor is he on a mailing list that I have ( actually I don't have
any mailing lists). If you received an email directly from me and we are
not working on a project together or you do not have a non-disclosure in
place with Williams International then DO NOT OPEN IT I did not send it!
I'll keep you folks posted.
