Sometimes several copies per day.  Fortunately I run my own mail server,
and it catches every single one.

You're right.

If it will make you feel better.  If you look at the mail headers, you
will probably see that it did NOT originate from whomever's email address
is in the From: field, but from someone else who had both you and them in
their email address book or inbox.  If you can figure out whose system
actually sent it (doubtful), you can tell them they have a virus, but in
my experience you won't have much luck with anything other than deleting
the message -- or using a filter or antivirus to prevent seeing them in
the first place.
