    Spam (Outlook 2000 SR-1)

    Not entirely sure this is the correct forum for this subject but:

    I recently installed a program that stops most Spam before it gets to my Outlook mailbox. I never used to look closely at this Spam when it came directly into Outlook because I would just delete it. Now when I review what it has intercepted to see if I want to un-spam any emails there are some strange dates that go along with the intercepted Spam. For instance, the other day an advertisement for something came in with the date of Feb. 16, 2002. This is not an isolated incident. Things like this do not happen every day but they do happen more frequently than I would have expected.

    Do you suppose whoever sends this type of junk doesn

    Are you talking about the received date? That's what shows in the header by default. It's stamped by your host server. Doesn't seem like the problem would be your server (either the wrong date or an incompatible date format) since that would affect all your mail. Might be interesting to show the sent date and compare the two...

    OldDog,

    No it is called the "Sent Date" and that is what my Spam program displays in one of its columns.

    Thanks.

    If your job was to send spam all day (or all night) long, would you bother to update the template the first spammer developed? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> All the information is fake; don't worry about it.

    jscher2000,

    I agree it isn't very important. I guess I'm from the old school and still believe if it is worth doing then it is worth doing right. However, I certainly can see your point.

    Thanks.
