  1. My spam folder is filled entirely with Christian and hymn-related message titles. I find this very strange, is this the way it things are nowadays?

    How about you, have you seen the lord in your dumpster?

      I do not have any type or form of unsolicited mail. Not on Hotmail/live/outlook, and not on gmail. The only mail i ever receive comes from the forums, games, youtube and services to which i myself gave my email-adress.

      Heh. and if im lucky the bands which have me in their mailing lists send some of those sweet promotional mails which offer free MP3's. Most propper sites do not give your email adress to Spam generating servers and services anyways.

      Does anyone else get letters from the White House? I started getting them maybe a month ago and they seem legit too (the address is info@mail.whitehouse.gov).

      It is very easy to spoof the FROM address in an e-mail.

      Usually spammers will spoof a FROM address from yourself to get through filters, but most intelligent filters know of such trickery.

      What you want to really do to determine authenticity of an e-mail is to look at all the headers. It should show you the relay and such of where the messages originated from (IP addresses and such). This is assuming your e-mail service does not strip this stuff out.

      If you ping whitehouse.gov you will find that good old Akamai handles the site.

      Also if you check the DNS records for whitehouse.gov you will find that there is no actual "mail" subdomain. So any replies sent to that address would just fail with a host resolution failure.

      However to get around this, there are "Reply-To" headers in e-mails. E-mail clients by default reply to that given address rather than the "From" address if it is available.
