I want to add my 2 eurocents to this...

Before going to the FBI, maybe just look at the new v|ruses around.

The bagle v|rus forges the sender of the mail and that s probably what
happened. Someone he knows got his computer infected and he started sending
mails to other people.

(a lurking sysadmin)

The impossible has been accomplished, I am now working on the miracles

1) Save all bounced emails.
2) File a police report with local law enforcement and ask them to refer it
to the FBI. Be a 'squeaky wheel' with the local FBI office and you may get
them to investigate. Forcing the FBI to investigate such stuff is about the
only good think in the new Federal How-To-Spam law.
3) Call or email me and I can give you some specifics on how to accomplish
this and save your user from all the bounces at the same time.
