    Anyone know who is Collete Liu, cltt1tr?

    Showed up as added to my Skype Contact's List this AM.

    I thought I had that blocked :-(

    But I now can't find a setting blocking an outsider adding themselves
    to my contact list.

    Anyone know how to do that?

  3. You were hacked.

    More likely that Skype is taking money to allow "accidents" to
    "happen". Cox allows emails not addressed directly to me to get into my
    in box all the time. Imagine that... a modern mail server that deosn't
    know how to serve the mail. More likely that cox allows some events to
    occur that lean toward assisting the spammers. Likely for money.
    Oh boy! Then both of you can talk about stalking posters and hunting
    them down.

    What do you mean by "addressed directly to me"?

    Email is[1] routed according to the envelope recipient (the address in the
    SMTP "RCPT To: ..." line), not the message headers ("To:", "CC:" etc).
    Mail forwarding and mailing lists rely upon this.

    [1] At least, it should be. Nowadays it usually is, but many of the early
    intranet-to-internet gateways used to route according to the headers,
    causing mailing loops. Lotus Domino was a particularly common offender.
     
  5. I get spam with addresses for the recipient that have near matches to
    mine. email I should never receive at all.

    Define "recipient".

    Unless your ISP's incoming mail server adds an extra header (e.g.
    Envelope-To) containing the envelope recipient, you won't even know who it
    was addressed to.

    The addresses in the To:, Cc:, etc headers are *irrelevant*; a
    correctly configured mail server will not be paying the slightest
    attention to those. Making assumptions about your ISP's mail handling
    based upon those headers is like believing that the address in the From:
    header is genuine.

    I get a fair amount of spam which has something which only resembles my
    email address in the To: header, but with the correct address in the
    envelope (the mail server adds an Envelope-To header).

    Sounds like a private situation between you and your wife.
    You need to apoligize profusely and buy her a big diamond ring.
    I don't know if you can take any clue from the politicians.
    Mike :)
     
  8. They have much bigger diamond ring budgets than most of us.

    Haven't found a volunteer... I'm old and ugly, but according to
    Slowman, I'm a rich Republican... is that worth anything ?:)

    Ahh, old, clearly you have had time to become wise.
    ugly, you must be a person that self examines
    Rich, oh, that is good.
    Republican, that means you are a fine upstanding responsible individual.
    Have a happy day, Mike

  17. You hiked PART of the Appalachian Trail.

    More likely even that you STOOD ON the trail and now claim that you
    hiked it.

    I used to go onto it every weekend. Cloud Splitter Rock was a regular
    hang out. One must use 'the trail' to get to Cloud Splitter Rock.

    One of the best, most remote campsites at Red River Gorge Geological
    Area is Pinch Em Tigh Gap. A ridge that takes two hours to hike to Plus
    climbing, but is usually all yours once you get there.
     
  18. We ALL already knew that.

    I get a fair amount of spam which has something which only resembles my
    most MTAs seem to put that info in the Received header instead
     
  20. Nobody

    Nobody Guest

    The Received: header doesn't have a well-defined format, so you can't
    reliably extract the recipient address. The Envelope-To: header contains
    just the recipient's email address.
