I have seen this a few times.  It appears to be some kind of program looking
for valid email addresses, something like 'if it doesn't bounce it must be
valid'.  My experience is that in a week or so you will get a bunch of
advertising email going to those same addresses.  I have tried several times
to back track and complain to the originators and their ISP but no real
success.
