    You don't understand SPAM do you ? Real spam doesn't
    have valid email addresses to reply to. They are either fake
    made up or some poor innocent person who's email has
    been used.

    Also do you really think SPAMMERS would include
    their own emails in their spam email lists.

    So really whats the use of posting them here? I don't
    think it all acheive anything.

    There were not the "reply to:" or "From:" headers, they were emails
    buried within the html email.

    The headers and content of an email need bear absolutely no relation to
    the true sender.

    see rfc 2821.

    That's true, but if they put fake email addressess in the *body* of
    the SPAM, they are unlikely to get any custom!

    Posting it to a porn newsgroup is likely to get more and more
    interesting spam sent to them, I'd wager.

    The addresses in the body might be for purposes other than getting
    custom. Here are two examples:


    1. An opt-out email address:

    | To be removed from further mailings, send an email to

    Take a look at the OP's list for an email address similar to the above.

    2. An email address found in HTML code similar to this...

    | <img src="http://foo.invalid/spacer.gif?isrcvd=" width=1 height=1 alt="">

    I get HTML spam addressed to multiple addresses. Some of this spam
    contains HTML code like the above to verify the address of one of
    the recipients -- usually the first recipient, & often not me but
    somebody else.
