Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Java Email Tracing

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if it was possible, if using something like commons.email to send about 500 - 1000 copies of the same email address from a public domain if that email would be traceable (ie/ can they somehow detect my mac address?) ?

    Any information on this would be great,

    Thanks a lot,

    Are you trying to track where your email goes after sending it? Or are you talking about bombarding people with lots of emails and covering your tracks?

    This doesn't really sound like you're looking to behave yourself!

    Emails can be spoofed, and addresses can be faked (how do you think spammers get away with it?), and I'm certainly not going to explain how to do that - I hate spam, and I don't agree with mail bombs.
