I asked this on Webmasters, since it was related to me being webmaster, but it got closed as off-topic. Let's see if I get lucky here.
I received this spam in my catch-all. As a webmaster of the domain it was sent to, I am really curious what the reason for this mail is. It was sent to a non-existent user "tania" on my domain - here I used mydomain.zzz - what does the sender want to achieve? Since many mail servers have stopped backscattering, not getting a bounce would not mean anything, would it? Thanks for enlightening me :) And if it is off-topic here too, please tell me why instead of just closing it.
UPDATE: What's with you people? Vote to close, not a question, not on topic! Come on! It is a question. I was sent here from WebMaster since it was not deemed on topic there. I am concerned and want to know -in case someone had an idea or maybe even KNEW what the AIM is. I KNOW it is spam. As a webmaster of my own domains I get many thousands of spams a week but they are all understandable - hence when I get something like this I get REALLY curious (and at least one comment shows that I am not alone) and I turn to StackExchange and get treated like an noob. Great.
