Notice the parentheses, or more importantly whats inside them. Almost
all modern virii grab 2 mail addresses and uses one for the from and the
other for the to. It doubles the chances of a specific mail delivery
will infect a machine. It should either be delivered successfully to the
To: addressee or get appropriately bounced to the From: addressee. You
just where spoofed.
