I am quincy.  I am sure I received it and since it was spam my filter
kicked in and I subsequently deleted it.  I saw the log entries after the
fact and can't go back and make sure.

Negative Batman.  I do have postmaster aliased to root and root to quincy.
 What I was saying was that the message generated and sent by my server
was a bounce message being sent to the forged address.  Then the forged
address replied to the bounce message with another bounce message.  If
this is something I should see, I didn't.
