Written by mypchell.com   
Please Note: This update is part of a series, The Seven Deadly Sins of Email, written by Squeezebox. This update includes the 2nd instalment (of seven).

Weíve all been on the receiving end of those jokes and fun type emails, and itís fine to forward them to your friends and other contacts. But do they really need all the address headers that came with it?

DEADLY SIN #2 Ė FORWARDING WITH ADDRESSES INCLUDED

Apart from cluttering the message up, this is another way that email addresses can end up on an infected computer for harvesting and used to propagate malicious content or spam.

Respect Privacy Itís also a way to give away a personís email address to someone else on your mailing list without permission. In the illustration, thereís a whole list of names (the addresses can be seen with a quick mouse click) of people that I wouldnít know from Adam. Supposing Felisa Stokes was my ex-partner and she wanted to remain non-contactable by me?

Clean up messages before you forward them! Doesnít take much to delete the headers, addresses and anything unwanted at the end of the message before hitting the ĎSendí button.
