Alright, all those websites with the time set to 12/31/69 at 7pm make sense. That is the date and time UNIX was first booted, and all unix system clocks are timed to that, keeping track of the seconds since that point. Meaning, when a server is having an error, it's clock will occasionally think that the time for the system clock is 0.

However, 6:59:59 on that day would be a system clock set to -1... also, I don't see how it would be possible to send an email without at least one server tagging it with a path. There's literally no information in the header, aside from Status : R and X-Status : N. That's it. The only other field is a blank comment field.

Curiouser, and curiouser.

::knows this is probably nothing, but loves a good mystery:: As one who has bounced emails anonymously, I've always found that they will still carry information about the sending server and the reciving server.

The only thing I can see is that the email was placed directly into my mail account at Siena, or that Kmail somehow sent itself that message. Or there's something really sneaky going on. Wonder wonder, oh wonder.
