    It came from @cia.gov and the long headers look OK. It says my IP address has been logged at 30 illegal websites. And it encloses a zip file of an .exe file that is supposed to be a questionaire.

    What is strange is that it was not addressed to the email address that is provided by my ISP but it uses an address that is connected to my website.

    Can anyone shed any light on this.

    Yes, everyone knows that CIA e-mails don't come with .zip files. They come in HTML format and promise you a supply of Viagra if you comply with their request. :eek: ;) :D

    P.S. Betcha Macrumors is on the list of illegal sites!!! The federal agents mad cuz' I'm flagrant, tapped my cell and the phone in the basement. :D

    If the CIA actually had an issue with you, do you really think all they'd do is email you about it? :rolleyes:
