I have just received about 5 like this in my e-mail account....

Jerold The most popular brands for replica watches! 0567 Mon Jan 18, 2038 5k

Spam from the future!

I thought that the date was generated by the receiver's mail account, so how is this possible? All my other mail has the correct date.

Might have something to do with this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem

But why exactly it was generated, I don┤t know...at least now you know, why it is 2038 and not 2140 for example Wink

^^^^
Thank you.

Upon further investigation it's apparently been happening for a while, to various people. I hardly ever actually open/look at my spam mail, so I never noticed it before.

I do like some of the theories on the reasoning behind it, though.

There are plenty of them. I find it quite comfortable. When I look into the spam folder to make sure no legit mail went there (happens from time to time), I just delete all those futuristic mails and have less to examine.
