Hi,
I don't think they got your email address from the greenstone mailing
list. We have it set up so that only the list administrator (ie me) can
see the addresses that are subscribed. Also, we are careful to not
show senders' email addresses in our greenstone archives collection
on the nzdl.org web site.

If the message headers indicate that the message really is from xtra.co.nz,
you could complain to abuse@xtra.co.nz and forward them the whole message
including the headers, but in my experience xtra (NZ's biggest ISP) haven't
been very responsive to spam complaints.
