That's alright... I know who did it now.
This kind of thing exposes xfce and my mail server in a way I never
envisioned and it gates two ways. Not something I will ever do again

spam sent to that list in spite of the fact it has not existed for more
then two years and it is something that will NEVER be repeated!
