Can we leave the drama out of it, please? OSL is aware of your
attached mail follows:
Hi Dave -- I saw this on the Boost mailing list. I expect that this
individual was spammed by a dictionary attack and that nothing
happened with the mail server or lists at OSL.

Subject: [boost] Spamming through Boost mailing list
When I signed up to the Boost mailing lists, I used a unique email
(boost@<mydomain>.com), so that I could detect if it was being misused.
Today I received the email below, which is obviously spam. It seems
that your mailing list has been compromised, so suggest that you
went wrong with the Open Systems Lab at Indiana University.
