Lab project 16.2
Find at least ten pieces of spam mail from any account, whether it be home, work, school, or something else. Using the e-mail headers, and wed site that might provide information, attempt to trace the spam mail back to its original source.
1. Collect the e-mail and view the e-mail header information in your e-mail program.
2. Find the ‘received’ field in the headers and write down as many DNS or IP addresses as you can. Also look for common details in the header element of the header element of the different messages such as the same e-mail service and spammers.
