    How To Determine The Origin Of Spam?

    (Page 1 of 7 )

    Spam will continue spreading as far as it makes profit. If nobody buys from spammers or acts upon their scams, spam will end.This is the obvious and easiest way to fight spam. You can ignore and delete spam emails you receive. But you can also take vengeance on the spammer by complaining to the spammer's Internet Service Provider (ISP). The ISP will block their connection and maybe impose a fine (depending on the ISP's acceptable usage policy). Spammers beware of such complaints and try to disguise their messages. That's why finding the right ISP is not always easy.

    Letís look inside a spam message. Every email message includes two parts, the body and the header. The body is the actual message text and attachments. The header is a kind of the envelope of the message. The header shows the address of the message sender, the address of the message recipient, the message subject and other information. Email programs usually display these header fields:

    From: shows the sender's name and email address.
    To: shows the recipient's name and email address.
    Date: shows the date when the message was sent.
    Subject: shows the message subject.
