Thread: email security

    email security

    For the last day or so I've been receiving SPAM that is coming from a mailer daemon. These emails state that the message was unable to be delivered. Such as sending an email to an incorrect address. Is this a new type of SPAM or do you think that someone sniffed my email password and is sending their junk out as me? I just changed my password, but I'm still curious. My email client is Pine, I think that Pine logs in unencrypted.

    Also, what email client do you use? Maybe, I should switch. I used KMail for a while, but it kept dropping attachments.

    I'm not real sure what could be the problem, however if you'd like to try switching e-mail clients two very good clients that I know of, and have used would be Evolution or Sylpheed. The later being the faster since it's strickly an e-mail client. The former is sorta like a mini-office, including a PIM, etc....

    Hard to say what might be the cause. Might be able to tell something by seeing the full headers from the e-mail. Try Slypheed if you are looking for another e-mail client. Evolution just has too many dependancies to install unless you know what you are doing.
