    Doesn't this look a bit odd? I haven't clicked on the link by the way, but I assume that it just confirms that my account is active and will add me to a spam list. The reason I received this email was because I emailed the SecurityFocus pen-test mailing list - well, not the reason, but the method by which my email address was obtained. As this email looks slightly fishy, I thought I'd post it here. I've never received a Brazilian email before

    Thanks,

    The e-mail you are trying to reach is protected by Aker Secure Mail Gateway, to avoid messages sent by bots or spammers. You are required to manually confirm the delivery of your message. This operation won't be necessary next time you try to reach the same e-mail address.
    well that is at the other end..

    I wont go to the next step..that is keying in the confirm code (Turin challenge)

    interesting...
