    E-mail forensics

    This is an article from school discussing email forensics. It's not about IP tracing and the like, but rather testing and comparing content and using it to verify authorship.

    It includes a few different models for accomplishing this goal, and is somewhat technical, but I found it interesting. Turns out there is a lot more to email forensics than just tracing it back to a specific computer.

    Maybe someone else will be interested in it.

    Cheers

    Interesting,

    I am also interested in e-mail attachments?

    As an experiment, could someone create a Microsoft Word document:

    "test, test test" or something like that, zip it and attach it to their post.

    If what I suspect works, I would not disclose any data, just PM the collaborator so they could post confirmation (got to do that.........no-one here would trust a lying bastard like me )

    Cheers

    By post, do you mean emailed to you, or attached to a post here? I'm assuming you mean emailed to you... but I haven't near enough caffeine in me for logical thought yet this morning.

    I hope it is well written. Unfortunately I can not print it out at the current moment because the Mac I'm on does not have a working plug-in for Acrobat... :-/ I'll just have to save it at home and print it off here.

    -Cheers-

    Hi,

    Just a small Word file zipped and attached to a post here would do.

    Cheers

    Thanks Cybr1d,

    I have already sent an explanatory PM

    Cheers

    EDIT: It needs to have some text in it .............a blank document is harmless


    You need to type in something and save it
