Munging My Address In Body of Email

3 posts in this topic

In several brands of spam I get, my email address is also in the subject and/or in the body of the spam, either built into links or more frequently, "Dear emanmb@_______".

Now I realize that changing any part of the spam being reported to SC is frowned upon, but in such cases, what else can I do to remain anonymous except to delete my email from wherever it appears in the report?  

A sample of the html incorporating my email in their link is below.

<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <a href="http://w0yoorncgn.cu.cc/7viV3yWAetrXvFFdyiMU/emanmb@--------"> <h2>Get $5730 deposited in your account to go back to school.</h2> <img src="http://w0yoorncgn.cu.cc/img/picture12.jpg/emanmb@---------" usemap="#edu" alt="Click here to Apply Now" /> </a> <map name="edu" id="edu"> <area alt="" title="" href="http://w0yoorncgn.cu.cc/7viV3yWAetrXvFFdyiMU/emanmb@---------" shape="default"/> </map> <br><br><br><br><br> </a> <a href="http://www.w0yoorncgn.cu.cc/1a8bb1a7bf24c6016ceaaa727a_92ba6759-01010101e4c5/C/">To Unsubscribe Click Here</a> <h5>To enable all links in this message (including unsubscribe link), please click Not spam on a toolbar</h5> </body> </html>

We assume you have set/checked your reporting preferences.

Have you sent yourself a copy of a spam report?  As noted elsewhere what you see looking at a report id or Tracking URL is not the same as the report that is actually sent.

Yes I remember seeing that somewhere.  No I do not have reports sent to me and will try it just to see.

This is where I added my address to do this in the preferences.
