Seeing that I have a collection of around 2000 unique and believable
return-paths from this virus, it seems quite likely that they're legitimate.

I have also recieved a few emails forwarded through from the sender's mail
servers informing me that I have been sent a virus.
And, as was said, the email addresses in the return path, and the servers
that the mail travels through to get here, do indeed link together.

That evidence linked together provides a pretty strong case that they're not
faked.
