Just received this email and am wondering now:
Date: Fri, 07 May 2004 16:51:51 -0700
From: RobertH <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Your code
I was cruising around the net looking for
something specific and stumbled across
a page with your stuff on it.
Here is what we are looking for.
We want to dynamically transport raw mail
files into various email clients, such as
Outlook, Express, Eudora and Netscape.
Do you have such a code that would accomplish
Any help would be appreciated.
Triumvirate Technologies, Inc.
Creators of Mailbox Filter
Alright, I do have written stuff for email handling. On the other hand, he doesn't mention which page it was where he found my stuff on.
The interesting part is that Triumvirate Tech. is a commercial software vendor of anti-spam software. Now, they don't want code from me so that they can put it into their software which they sell for money, do they? Maybe I'll reply and ask inconspicuously for some details on what code they want and how they intend to use it.
Or maybe this mail is just spam that happens to look like non-spam?
Update: The mail was not spam. I asked for more detailed information and just received the reply. As it looks, they are writing their stuff in VB. What they want is delivering mail from an ordinary UNIX mail spool (which would most likely be mbox or mdir) to several mail clients directly without using POP3 on the client side. Essentially they want to convert mbox/mdir in one of the many proprietary formats used by Outlook Express and the lot on the fly.
