One of our clients just contacted me regarding an e-mail she received...evidently the sender thought she was just an e-mail user of a particular domain and not the owner:

The e-mail orginated from ihateclowns.com, however, that site uses everyone.net to offer a free e-mail service so it could have been anyone.
