[Scottish] Poisoned Spam

Is it just me?

I've been responsible for the care and feeding of a lot of mailboxes. I've 
seen SMTP queues stalled, and lots of messages bounced due to bad formatting. 
But until this week I never had trouble getting mail out of a POP3 mailbox.
In the last week, I've had _three_ mailboxes across two servers getting 
clogged with spam messages which won't download through POP3 because of 
problems with the headers. 

It seems a little strange (and far to quiet on this list!)
