I just got a couple of emails so weird that I can't even tell what they are. I'm guessing they're spam, but I can't make head nor tails out of them. The addresses in the headers point back to servers at Verisign, so I have no idea where they came from. But all the headers appear to be fake anyway. Here's a sample:
Received: from [126.96.36.199] ([188.8.131.52]) by
Received: from 62.s1rxeh.org [184.108.40.206] by 220.127.116.11

X-Mailer: AOL 7.0 for Windows US sub 118
(Gah! Why can't I just wrap that in <code> tags like in Everything?) The date is the only thing that doesn't look fake in there.
The body of the email is HTML, but it's complete gibberish. At least, it's not any language I recognize (human or computer):

So WTF? Anybody else seen this? What the heck is it?
