View Full Version : Funky/Stealth email
01-20-2003, 09:25 PM
I have this weird thing happening on my yahoo email account. In my inbox I delete all the spam like everyone else. Clear out the trash and surf the net. When I come back I have a new spam email but it was received a fews prior. Like if I have 5 spam emails today and one legit email. I delete the spam and have the legit email from today. I would go back into my yahoo email and I would have a new spam mail received a few days before todays legit email which wasn't there before.
Anyone else have this happen to them?

I notice that all the time too. Maybe it was stored in their backup servers because of congestion? Complete conjecture on my part.

I think it is a yahoo problem.
I think it works like this someone sends you an email at 1pm and it gets delayed for some reason, or the timestamp on it delays it, your mail box gets filled up, the email from 1 gets bounced back, you clear your box, and then the email from 1 tries again, I think it tries like three times.
