Despite the use of a generic yahoo email account, the originating IP of 
the mail to this list also came from an edu.tw domain. I guess the OP 
didn't make a very good job of making it easily verifiable as non-spam 
so list members are right to be somewhat suspicious.

If only I could get my users to be as suspicious of clicking on links in 
emails!
