I got a copy of the virus too, but I didn't send it. 

Klez forges the "from" header.My copy of McAfee  grabbed it.

the infected computer is using the connection putc12161208075.cts.com []

FWIW I also got the same virus from the same IP address, but the from "header" was 
From: Bighummel <Bighummel@aol.com>

I am surprised that StripMime didn't strip the virus, especially since the header "X-StripMime: Non-text section removed by stripmime" was in the message
