We call it spoofing and it does suck. For what it's worth, here's an article on it:

We have sometimes lost considerable connectivity and productivity by being blacklisted (that is the entire University of Texas -- including the 70,000 current faculty, staff, and students and also past employees and students) due to this spam technique.

It can be a BIG headache.

As others have noted in this thread, the better news servers now hide the address in such a way as to make grep searches somewhat more difficult for address harvesters. It works for us--for now.

Hello people,

I am sorry I have to change my e-mail address again due to a new form of nasty spam. This new kind of spam uses your e-mail address (and when possible, also your web service domain name) to send virus around the world. Then, you get 1) belived as the original sender of the virus and 2) bombed with server notices of inexistent mails being blocked by the anti-virus service.

For this reason, I am going to drop my last mail and never use mailing lists which get published on the internet anymore.

Now, is this list publishing e-mails in web-based services? If so, I am forced to quit participating it.

Best regards,
Giancarlo Niccolai.
