Do u forward mails??
22 May 08
yes i do. But the thing is, I dont just forward the mail as it is. Meaning, after hitting the forward button,I edit the subject by taking out the FW in the subject header. Then I delete the sender's name and all the other email addresses included in the body of the letter. I only retain the message itself. In this way we avoid spam and the spread of virus. Finally, just put one email add in the TO: field and the rest of the emails in the BCC: field. Do not put anything on the CC: field. This way the spammers will not get all the addresses because they can't see the BCC field addresses.

I do wonder about space, so I tend to delete extra text when i forward stuff, but I only forward some things. I do not have the time it takes or the energy or inclination for that matter to forward everything I get, or even read some of them! I know that on campus we have bandwidth issues too, so if I am using the campus network, I would do less forwarding to spare the bandwidth resources. I find it's a very useful tool for spreading important information but then you have to wonder about the "this may save your life" emails that are really like made-up stories to cause panic. Some people cannot distinguish these from real warnings, which is unfortunate! I like to check snopes.com to make sure it's not one of those fake emails before forwarding.
