    The trace of where the email came from is usually in the mailings headers. I
    don't think you can get them when using hotmail, but if you had Outlook or
    something like that, then you can see the headers. By the way, when you post
    in the newsgroups, you are going to get SPAM. It is highly likely that you
    are simply getting SPAM. You might want to read up on what SPAM is.

    Hi!
    You cannot stop somebody from subscribing u to these mails.....but u can
    avoid these. as far as getting IP information, mail is sent to u by that
    porn website server, not the user. once they get ur email, its in their system
    and u cannot do anything even if u get ipaddress.
    Now, normally, when u get subscribed first time, they might have(not necessary)
    sent u a confirmation/welcome email with originating ip address whcih was
    used by that guy. if u get that ip address and assuming that that guy was
    lame enough that he was not using any anonymous proxies, u can contact the
    ISP to whom that ip address belongs. if they are kind enough, they will search
    their records and then try to comeup with the user...it might be ur target,
    or it might be some cyber cafe....
    i know my reply by-far is somewat discouraging, but i have seen these
    things happening to ppl and i know that they were unable to do anything....chances
    are like "once in a blue moon" that ur enemy gets caught...
    now enough discouraging stuff.....


    1. u r using hotmail, so activate inbox protector. block the email address
    of that site from which u r getting those emails.

    2. check to see if they have "unsubscribe" link at the end of their email,
    if their is one, try to unsubscribe urself.

    3. as far as getting ip information, go to "Options" in ur hotmail account
    and their u'll find a tab for mail display settings. click that tab and it
    will ask u somewhere in next page about how to display message headers, default
    is that it will show u minimal information. select "advanced", and once u
    do that, it will show u complete trace of orginating ip, and server thru
    which mail got routed b4 getting recieved by you.
    so i hope that it will help u out, if u need any more help with that,
    lemme know! ok!
