    Whats this supposed to mean?

    I got this in my aol mailbox earlier today (about the only thing I use aol for). My question is that the sender and domain are unknown. By looking at the headers is that "uktfu@eurobell.co.uk" just a mail server, or is it the person who sent this? Can any of you gurus make anything intelligable out of this?

    well the header shows all the info you need for finding out where it came from you can trace route with visual route or something like it to find out exactally where it came from. What ever you want to know about who sent it can be dirived by the ip already provided.

    Thumbs up

    Don't overlook the obvious.
    What was the content of the message?
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Look at the bright side. I use AOL for everything, because it's the best ISP around here, although a little pricey, but still cheaper than broadband. I get tons of AOL PORN everyday I could pull my hair out....I wish I got interesting SPOOKY spam at least.....

    And if you have AOL, have you noticed how the porn spammers have gotten creative with their subject lines, like they actually know you. Things like: "Hey, you left without saying goodbye." *LOL*

    Well, since no one else is being serious....

    Check to see what 206.151.49.162 is. Is it eurobell.co.uk? I doubt it. I am not going to take the time to look right now, but check it anyway.

    This appears to be a messed up attempt at using an SMTP server to spoof an email message. uktfu is probably some kind of acronym. ukt Fu** yoU, or something along those lines. The QUIT is probably the fact that whoever did this didn't have any idea how to end the data part of the message. The unknown sender/domain is because the person didn't know how to properly authenticate to the server. So it is probably just a messed up spoofed mail message.

    Either that, or uktfu found out that you are trying to hack eurobell.co.uk, and is telling you to quit.
