I've got one really off tracking report, the mail has apparently been read on:

Wednesday, Dec, 31, 1969, 6:59:59PM then normal IP addy

It gives four counts of the mail being opened at that particular time. Does anyone have any idea why a date almost 40 years ago comes up?

The other tracking reports for that particular e-mail are normal with today's date.

Could it be that he's using an internet cafe and one of the machines he uses has a dodgy battery? So whenever it gets switched off, the date and time reset themselves? The fact it's set on 31st Dec seems to support this.

The email seems to have passed through a server showing the wrong time. Unix machines use dates starting at 1st Jan 1970, and revert to that date if there's a problem such as a failed CMOS battery. Very close to this timestamp.

Edit: I didn't read the question properly. As others have said, it's a problem with the lad's computer.

^^^Interesting - if that's true, something like that might explain why I sometimes get scam emails with the date 01-01-1970.

I sent a lad on a safari through time.

Sorry for the confusion.

I have a vision of a lad wearing pink denim flares, silver platform boots and an absolute whopper of a flowery orange kipper tie.
