Interesting Murcy. There were addresses I did not recognize. And there were many that are not in my address book but are places I sent a single email to...sometimes a year or more ago. Bizarre. Wonder if I can figure out more looking at all the returned emails I got.

i did find out last night that there are TONS of viruses being sent out from places like Africa, and the ME. Some sort of cyber war going on i would imagine.

Graphically speaking, the idea is to keep all the bad stuff, portrayed here by Tinkerbell, from entering your private domain.

^^ Oh those Disney animators ;-)

As others noted email is easily spoofed but if you have a copy with the complete headers SpamCop is pretty good about determining the actual source:

Was it a web mail account?

Thanks QITNL. Looks like I've done most of that. Still, I'd not seen these pages - they are really useful!

Yeah Karl, with the increasing popularity of Apple products, the scumbags will start targeting them more.

I don't think it's a apple virus or anything. If they can get you to sign a phoney page that looks real, they get your info without regard to OS. Or they can just attack your account without involving your computer at all, or steal your info from a server that's not properly protected

Peace

Sorry Jingy et al. I answered an email from a close friend. Turned out to be a false one. How can hackers know so much?

Anyway, when I answered I got slammed....then everyone on my email address list got slammed too. Again, sorry. Lynne
