-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Mail

Please show me a SPAM that wants you to REPLY to the spam.  You don't REALLY 
think that a spammer would make it that easy do you?  Spammers and viruses 
do not want you to reply to the message... they want you to click on a link 
IN the message.

99.99999999999999% of the time a bounced SPAM will not return to the actual 
sender.

Please note, that a lot of what you probably call SPAM is not, by 
definition, spam.  That is because you asked to receive it as part of the 
terms for registering at a website or subscribing to a service.  E-mail that 
comes to you because asked for it, may indeed get bounced back to the actual 
sender.
