Have fun but be careful you list the actual sender, not the "from" address
in the mail. Many, if not most, spam emails have forged headers.

related to that .... Something I just never "got": I just saw on my Yahoo
mail, a message with a title like
"V86iagra big CIAL9is understood 18 .... "
Originally I at least understood why "bad spam" was sent - stuff like
"you've won the lottery" or 'enter your credit card info here' etc. But
what good is sending an email message with a title like "V86iagra big
CIAL9is .... " to 6 million people ? and once they have your name they
send another the next day and the next day and the next day ...

OK, so they have to mispell the word to get thru the spam filter - fine.
But WHAT recipient would then receive that email and say " Oh, I wonder
what this email is about and who this is from - let me open it ? OH !
It's an ad for Viagra ( or porn) or whatever !".
I've always thought that the 6 million people should KEEP clicking the ad
until the spam sender's server crashes.

I don't see "where's the money in it for them?"
Is it that they write a webpage for a customer and promise that customer
10,000 hits - is that it ? So that if any recipient clicks on the ad it
counts as a hit for that customer ?

Yeah, I can't imagine that those kind of messages do any good. Kind of like pop-up ads, all modern web browsers block pop-ups by default so what good is a pop-up anymore?
