Strange email from CoalaWeb?

When you send a letter through the post, you generally write a return address on the envelope so the recipient can identify the sender, and so the post office can return the mail to the sender in the event of a problem. But nothing prevents you from writing a different return address than your own; in fact, someone else could send a letter and put your return address on the envelope.
Email works the same way. When a server sends an email message, it specifies the sender, but this sender field can be forged. If there is a problem with delivery and someone forged your address on the message, then the message will be returned to you, even if you weren't the actual sender.
These emails appear to be sent with the subject Part 1, Part 2 etc. with an accompanying compressed attachment similar to this:
Not from CoalaWeb
The short answer is I'm not the sender of these spam emails and I do not have your name on a list.
