"mail appears to be sent from somewhere" - FTFY ... I don't claim to know where it's coming from, you might be right but this week all our malware appears to be coming from Germany, last week it was all appeared to be coming from Russia. The hackers sending you malware are very good at hiding their locations so I expect that most of it is from countries that don't appear to be sending any spam or malware these days (e.g maybe North Korea, I haven't seen anything direct from them for years now)...

Our mail server scans headers and blocks IP addresses that send too much email too often, so we end up seeing very few hacking attempts.
