Hello, Thanks for the response.
Will the 'From:' and 'Received:' lines always be the text for the lines. Or will it be translated to X language?

You may evan have no return-path at all. You should better fook at the "Fom:" line. By the way, the from line can easily be forged to anything. You may also have a look at the "Received:" lines. There is one per hop between sender and receiver. Note that tehre are some variations on what you can find in the "received:" lines. The lines are in reverse order of hop traversal. You should find your own ISP on the first line. -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] The author of the freeware multi-tier middleware MidWare The author of the freeware Internet Component Suite (ICS) http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
