    As I use Spam Inspector to protect myself against SPAM, I cannot add the Topic reply email adress from this forum to my friends list because there is no email adress in the From field. o_O

    How to solve :D

    OK, I use Spam Inspector to protect my Inbox from SPAM, in this program you can add people (email adresses or compele domains) to your friends or enemy list. As I recieve an email from this board that there is a reply to my post, Spam Inspector marks this email as SPAM and drops it in my Deleted messages. So normally I can add an email adress to my friends list, but the mail wich is send from this board has no sender email adress o_O.

    Strange indeed, here a screenshot of the email, the From field says: Geen afzender opgegeven, wich means: No sender given.

    Caspar,

    Here's an at random example:

    Code:
    Received: (qmail 66466 invoked by uid 89); 2 Sep 2003 00:27:12 -0000
    Received: from unknown (HELO security.wildersecurity.com) (66.227.56.13)
      by mail.arasrecords.com with DES-CBC3-SHA encrypted SMTP; 2 Sep 2003 00:27:12 -0000
    [b]Received: from nobody by security.wildersecurity.com[/b] with local (Exim 4.20)
    The bolded part looks like the one that's triggering Spam Inspector. Since I,m unfamiliar with SI, I'll suggest informing about this at the software vendor.

    regards.

    paul
