Yeap... it's malware, shifting the burden off proving who you are from
spoofed headers. Wrong, Wrong, Wrong Wrong. Challenge and Response
setups are sick. And cause as much e-mail to combat spam and virii as it
does save.

apt-get remove --purge tmda

Is the ONLY SANE answer. C-R systems push the burden off to unsuspecting
other third parties not even connected to most of the mail sent this
way. Any C-R I get goto /dev/null.
