    How To Determine The Origin Of Spam? - The From...

    (Page 2 of 7 )

    The From: field usually contains the sender's email address. This lets you know who sent the message and allows you easily reply. Spammers, of course, donít want you to reply and donít want you to know who they are. Therefore, they put forged email addresses into the From: lines of their emails. So the From: field wonít help you if you want to determine where the spam email comes from.

    Tip! With G-Lock SpamCombat you can easily preview not only the message text but also all the fields of the message header . You can choose the preview format by yourself. You can view the message as HTML, decoded message, or message source.There are also several Received: fields in the header of every message. Email programs donít usually display the Received: lines but the Received: lines can be very helpful in tracing the spam origin.

    Just like a postal letter goes through a number of post offices before itís delivered to the recipient, an email message is processed by several mail servers. Each mail server adds a line to the message header Ė a Received: line Ė which contains

    - the server name and IP address of the machine the server received the message from and
    - the name of the mail server itself.
