Okay, I just received this email (addresses censored):

...and a empty body. Huh?

It's either some unusual spam the second received header is obvously fake), or someone had some line noise along the way. The sender IP belongs to Korea Telecom operating centre, but the one in the HELO command is that of one of Yahoo's mail server. So definetely spam, but weird.

Edit: fixed formatting. LiveJournal's autoformat seems to translate as "put a br after every line", which obviously messes up stuff when you've got a table formatted in the source for readability.
