As far as I know, blender.nl does not actually resolve to a server any more:

Code: Select all

matt:~ matt$ ping blender.nl
ping: unknown host blender.nl
I have a feeling the spammers are just spoofing the address - not much one can do about that, unfortunately...

blender.nl is down since april 2002.
Spammers spoof everything, including blender.org addresses... :/

JWalton:

The most likely thing that's happening is that someone has a worm/virus/whatever on their Windows machine and all the blender.nl addresses still in their address book which the worm/visus/etc draws from for spoofing.

Outlook + clueless users = bad.
