I've gotten 2 spam emails from auto-spam engines most likely. The senders are:


von.mark25@ voila.fr


Notice_11@ satx.rr.com


Notice11 sent me a nice "WINNING NOTICE" spam, and von.mark sent me a nice "GOOD NEWS" spam e-mail.

However, I refuse to open spam mail, as I am afraid of spyware/adware download links in the e-mail, and me accidentally clicking one of them.

(I put spaces in the mail addresses above, applying the "break the link" rule to the mailing addresses.)

What do you define as "auto-spam engine"? I'm asking because this expression isn't well defined as Google shows:

Whether they have or have not sent anything can't be determined without evidence.

I have no idea how "WINNING NOTICE" or "GOOD NEWS" spam looks like, because there's no commonly used definition for it.

Then what's the point of writing about spam you never opened? Just posting two email addresses is not really helpful for anyone. In case you want to contribute your spam collection to the public, the best way to achieve it is to:
  • Add the mail headers (probably you want to redact the account it was sent to)
  • The mail body (unless it's all hash buster or a image, pdf or whatever extension spam)
  • Optionally describe what part of the received lines did originate from your mail server, so the presumable sender can be determined (or mark this line yourself if you know what you are doing)

This way interested parties can do a research on that matter and compare it with previous incidents.
