spammers using my e-mail address

   Date: Sat, 28 Apr 2007 16:16:38 -0400
   From: Stephen Adler <adler at>

   It looks like some spammers have decided to put my address in the
   reply-to field in the spam they are sending out across the
   Internet. Is there a way of finding out who is doing them and
   getting them to stop?

Nope.  Somebody's zombie probably found your email address in the
address book or email of the computer it was running on, and started
using it as the sender.  This is all too common.
