Re: Mail with no purpose?
To pick on one bulk political mailer, Kintera.Org, mail from firstname.lastname@example.org contains a tracking gif, a 1x1, within the html portion of a multipart MIME payload. Voila: <img height=3D'1' width=3D'1' src=3D'http://www.kintera.org/omt/70069677.gif'> Yes I've kevetched to the Kucinich campaign that putting tracking gifs in political marketing is dumb, but to no avail. Of course the html contains more URLs than just the one into Kintera's mail delivery and click-through tracking playpen. Wrong community I know (ASRG is over there) but something like DCC that catches the "twinkle" of a spam's URL payload by nsen niggles me. Eric
