We received a questionable email from someone who is impersonating someone else.  I would like to know who sent it, but I dont know if that is possible.  Here is some info in the internet headers.  From what I can tell it came from a starband user, but that is all I can tell.  Is there any more info that can be gleamed from the attached?
