Am I sending spam?

Lincoln Spector has helped me in knowing about those bounced emails that pop-up in my inbox each day. None of these mails, that are actually stealth product promotions, were sent by me. The new trend is spamming is now to create sender addresses picked randomly off the same list from which recipient addresses are harvested. Why so? Because the old way of creating random addresses now doesn’t work as well. That means, unknowingly I might be sending spam to so many people. But as Spector suggests we can only grin and bear it. As for those you got my mail..believe me, I am no spammer.
