Jeremie works for a company that develops IM software.

I seriously doubt it!  But you don't know that this company does either.

Hmm... that part looks like my mistake.  I got the same email that Waster
got, and on the same day I got a spam from a random web recruiter that was
offering a similar job.  I got the two mixed up.

Anyway, I was just commenting the rather rude and presumptuous tone of the
replies.  The company involved shouldn't have spammed the Jabber
developers--I won't stick up for them there, and I already said that I was
under the impression that it was a recruiter mail.

But I don't think we should assume evil intent before we know anything about
their system.  For all we know, the emailer could be one clueless Human
Resources individual at an otherwise-clueful company.
