OK - So I've seen this before sporadically.  An Exchange client receives SPAM which is addressed to someone else in the same windows domain (with an account on the same exchange server) for no apparent reason.  I've looked at the header and it only shows the address going to the CORRECT recipient.  Any ideas?

This is very common.

All that has happened is that the spammer has put the address in the BCC field.
A single address in the To: line and the rest in the BCC. Means a single message is sent to all victims at once without exposing the list.

Sorry -

I thought the user had also reported that the email was coming FROM someone else in the building as well.  Not the case.
