I got one of these too. It's either someone harvesting email addresses (eg
from the Full-Disclosure public archives). I also received a welcome message
with a picture attached (even though I have to use evil Outlook, I use
Zone-Alarm to prevent it talking to anything outside our LAN).
Although it does look like a genuine abusive message, it lacks both the name
of the person it's sent to and who it's from. If I was going to insult
someone, I'd at least use their name. Also, the email headers make it look
like it's come through some cable modem connection, rather than direct from
Received: from fl.22.214.171.124.cablemodem.gte.net
All I've done is reply to it to inform the person that the address was being
used to send abusive email.
