I haven't read all the posts as yet, however I will post my findings.
Strangely enough, I received 86 bounce backs this morning from an email
address that was made redundant more than 4 years ago. All the messages
were being targeted at *(a)austrade.gov.au and had this German gibberish
in them. I didn't receive one bounce back going to any other domains or
coming from any other email address.

Subject: [nznog] Zombies
It looks like there are lot of NZ based Zombies sending very large
amounts of Spam ( much of it in German) to some ISPs.
This has really been going hard over the last hour.
I'm seeing adsl accounts at xtra, iprolink and ihug, xtra dialups etc
As a related issue, how do people feel about a whitelist RBL of NZ mail
servers, It looks like it's not good to just whitelist NZ IPs
