Don't use real email addresses! Obviously they are collected and you
will get spam from everywhere.

well - too late ;)

I was wondering what exactly happened in that case.
What kind of backdoor is able to send email
with 472388.1062583502266.JavaMail.itn@is.intellij.net
as sender?

They just faked the sender. Standard spam.

ok - still I'm curious. How is it working?
Someone sets up that "spam-machine", configuring somewhere
to send email from some fake *itn(at)is.intellij.net
to e.g. my email address.

Is it some human looked at the EAP forum, thinking - ok
let's send them emails with "intellij" somewhere in the
senders address - to trick them into opening the
attachement?

I'm just wondering about that amount of energy that
seems to be put into that...

IntelliSpam - I'm tempted to say... ;)

They have a spider that crawls the pages looking for e-mail address
patterns. Then they throw them in a huge list and SPAM. I guess they
are being a little more sophisticated and faking an address that they
know we would be familiar with
