OT: do any comcast users ever get spam from comcastonline.com?

In addition to occasionally getting mails which appear to be from 
comcast from m0.net, I occasionally get emails with headers thusly:

Received: from mailgate.comcastonline.com ([])
        by mailgate.comcastonline.com (8.12.10/8.12.10) with ESMTP id 
i5RG16pu0$        for <[my comcast email alias]@comcast.net>; Sun, 27 Jun 
2004 12:44:17 -0400Message-ID: 
X-EM-APIVersion: 2, 0, 0, 2
Reply-To: Comcast Online Communications 
X-Mailer: divine NetAgent CONTACT v6.00.120
From: "Comcast Online Communications" 

The email is in HTML format and contains <img> linking to:


and <a> links to things like:


My email preferences say send me no emails and I've called Comcast 
several times and they said this is some sort of Phishing.  The IP 
Address is suspiciously close to 192.168.x.x, so maybe 
they are telling the truth.

Has anybody else receieved emails like this.  What I do is just change 
my email address when this happens, but the "spam" seems to resume 
either within days or sometimes within months, and I only use this 
particular alias for Comcast and a couple other companies, so I don't 
know how the spammers are getting it.  Is this Comcast spam or Phishing?
