Any chance from a guy named 'Rod'?  Google for nabble and you'll see 
other problems also.  Nabble allows people to post through nabble 
into maillists that nabble is subscribed to.  The email came from nabble:
   Received: from isper.nabble.com ([])
         by kuber.nabble.com with esmtp (Exim 4.63)
         (envelope-from <bounces at nabble.com>) id 1Il2U3-00048s-G3
         for catalyst at lists.scsys.co.uk; Thu, 25 Oct 2007 06:10:47 -0700

The solution is simply to not accept postings from nabble to the 
list.  Since they have a history of being abused, and not being able 
to stop it, a read-only subscription would be required.
