ummm.... It had nothing to do with comcast. A spammer had apparently
found a weakness in the mailserver software app that allowed direct
injection of hir spew by pretending to /be/ "localhost" although that is
not a valid internet IP. For a while, we were getting about five percent
of our spam by injection, headers much like yours.
I think Mike is saying to talk to your ISP at every possible level
until their people find and plug the "hole" allowing the injection
expect more untraceable spam. It took attglobal about four months
to recognize the problem, about three weeks to discover and patch
the hole letting spam leak in...
