It wouldn't be the first dumb-ass relay I've seen that uses the headers and
not the envelope address. One of our big University-wide lists got hit by
this a few months back, it spewed over 100,000 messages before it was stopped.

But CT really should know better. I knew their software was overpriced
****, but I didn't think it was *that* broken :-(
