'.EXE' myemail@domain.com - What is the '.exe' for?


New Email
I use Thunderbird to view my email, and I noticed '.EXE' in the To field right before my email address. I did a search online, and it seems to imply that it has to do with Power Shell, so I believe it is a way to automate sending mass email. I checked it on Virus Total, and the file seems to be clean. I saved it as a text file and here is the relevant portion:
To: "'blah@blah.net'" <blah@blah.net>, '.EXE'

Does anyone know what that is, and what it does?

Looks like someone did a poor job scripting when sending out job opportunity spam.
