    While reading the headers of an email from Facebook I found the mention of a mailer called zuckmail :

    X-Facebook: from zuckmail ([MTI3LjAuMC4x]) by api.facebook.com with HTTP (ZuckMail);

    Apparently ZuckMail is named after the founer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.

    I think your facebook account has been hacked.Any time you receive an email notification from Facebook, it will contain a header that looks something like this: X-Facebook.

    ZuckMail is a constant user agent through out all of my legitimate FB notifications.

    Code:
    X-Facebook: from zuckmail ([MTI3LjAuMC4x]) 
    	by www.facebook.com with HTTP (ZuckMail);
