    I have received a spam email purporting to be from myself with a very 
    unpleasant and pornographic title.
    
    It is highly possible my email address could have been obtained from the 
    Seesat listing on the web though of course this is only one of a number of 
    possibilities.
    
    There is a definite clue to the origin of this message in the header and 
    obviously I will be following that up with the appropriate ISP if possible.
    
    If other list members get such emails appearing to be from me I would be 
    grateful if they would notify me if possible, with the header details if 
    available (it is possible to get the header details without opening it by 
    using "properties."
    
    However it also means that legitimate mails from me to the list could get 
    flagged as spam by some ISPs so grateful if you could bear this in mind: I 
    have had this done by my ISP to some postings from other members to the 
    list.
