In this case it doesn't seem random, as, starting a few days ago, I am 
now receiving one such message, always from Lyris ListManager, as soon 
as I post to the OS X TeX list. Gary Gray, whom I contacted, told there 
is a Lyris ListManager subscribed to the list, though the subscription 
feels a bit suspicious given this ListManager is apparently sending 
automatic responses.

Your answer tends to indicate this affects only me, not other posters 
to this list, right?

But yes, I am also receiving many messages, especially from 
virus-scanners, caused by viruses who spoofed my address as the virus 
sender. Or requests for confirmation of subscription to lists, to which 
I never willingly asked to subscribe.

I did not notice any special increase yesterday, apart from the gradual 
increase from practically no spam two years ago to the present 30-50 
spams per day (actually at my work address the ratio of spam/legitimate 
is now practically 10 or 15). Could what you see be caused by the 
MyDoom.M virus which was reported to have hit the net badly yesterday 
or the day before? Our administrator here has taken the drastic measure 
of temporarily rejecting any email message with a .zip attachment, so I 
do not see any difference.
