    Hrm.

    Worth noting, perhaps, that the intelligent cracker (as opposed to
    the script kiddie) will craft port 25 exploits specifically *to*
    look like spam in your logs...

    If you have to ask if you're being paranoid enough, you're not.

    Source addresses are pretty much meaningless in this case. If it's
    an open relay, it's just as good for the exploit as it is for spam.
    Whoops.

    Cheers...
