    Tracking e-mail

    Hi Guys/Gurls

    I have a question regarding tracking e-mails sent from a personal computer i.e. not corporate mail. Is it possible to track the delivery route of the e-mail sent out either via special flag such as read receipt or attaching a program or even inserting a hidden line or code. The problem is I have a friend of a friend who seems very paranoid and he believe his message are been incepted via the cloud. Maybe this bloke needs to see someone or maybe he has a valid point - anyhow I just want to know if it's technically possible to trace a single mail.

    The guy is going on about data encryption, Kaspersky and I believe he is running a mac (haven't a clue what version, I am not even sure if this guy updates his OS X because he complains updates take up space :/ and he's using Eirecom. - He says Eirecom don't encrypt his data traffic, So he use's Kaspersky for this reason I don't know to what extend, to be honest I think his understand of Encryption is a lot worse then mine, and I mine is exactly polished.

    Cheers
    ZL

    Kaspersky for Mac http://www.kaspersky.com/security-mac

    Yes, Mac and Linux can get messed with, but the chances are nil. Most folks do not even worry about anything hitting them.
    He is the first that I have heard of to run anything like that. I know I do not in Linux.
    Windows, now that is a different story.

    Maybe updating the MAC will eat up his monthly bandwidth. If he thinks , should he have a 30 GB limit, he will hit it. he would have to hitting P2P real hard as the wife and have never hit 3 GB combined.
