And yet that's precisely what it is. Backscatter is a form of spam.
You should never accept mail that you know cannot be delivered
If you want to find out what kind of mail is being reported as spam then
ask at deputies at admin dot spamcop dot net. Be advised, however, that
you will not be given full details of spam that's been hitting spam
I haven't lost my mind; I know exactly where I left it.
