Featuring article abstract:

In this issue of the newsletter we reproduce written material relevant to the  mining of email headers, senders, and ISPs. Spammers, viruses, and hackers love to fake email headers as these provide setting information that might serve as entry points around which a strategy could be crafted. Intelligence data miners also love email headers. Since these can be faked, they can be used to encode hidden messages. Actually, email steganography is an exciting area.
