    It looks like it's "" who sent it. The webhostingtalk header was most likely forged. concentric should probably be notified that they have open relays too.

    This is an autoresponse from regarding the spam message I received. I forwarded them the message explaining the problem and received this in return:

    MicroThin does not promote any type of spam or junk mail at all and has taken all possible measures to ensure that all SPAM is blocked.

    Note that your email may have been rejected due to certain words or content that is deemed inappropriate.

    If you are receiving SPAM that is showing sent from this is a forged header.
