Every email has to go through an MTA or Mail Transfer Agent to travel from one computer to another.
It is the MTA that stamps the sender, recipient and other information in the header of the email.
It also stamps the route taken by the email to reach your inbox, the IP address from where the email was sourced and
it also lets you know the entire list of recipients, so you can know if you were a part of a mailing list.
Armed with this information, you will be able to identify if the mail you have received is indeed a spam message or not.
Emails are made of two components:
- The first component is the email body
- The second and perhaps, the most important component is the header of the email known as email header.
The sender and recipient information is part of what is called the header of the email (email header). It will also mandatorily
contain the date and the local time the email was sent. The email header may also contain other information like the subject
of the message and the cc or bcc, but these are optional, although very commonly used. What this means is that every time
an email is sent out, information about the sender, the receiver, the time and date will become a part of the email body,
the header, and precede the message.
This header is stamped on the email by a mail transfer agent (MTA) – a computer program
or software agent that facilitates the transfer of email message over the internet from one computer to another.
The bulk of the information that travels with the header of an email is very technical and difficult to understand, but
is not displayed to the user who only sees the most relevant aspects of it.
