Hi! I sent you this letter because your email address was on a list that fit this category. I am a fan of child pornography and for the past 4 years, I have been able to gather quite a collection of it. I have pictures, VHS tapes, posters, audio recordings, and games based on child porography. I am now selling my products (or trading for other child pornography). I have a complete color catalog of all my products now available. [snip pricelist for color catalog and video tapes]

SMTP†The Simple Mail Transfer protool is the basic protocol used by mail servers to send messages to one another. A more advanced version of this protocol is any messages the server is holding for the computer

POP†The Post Office Protocol is a way for a computer to ask a mail server to send it any messages the server is holding for the computer.

IMAP†The Internet Message access Protocol can also be used to ask a mail server to send messages its holding. In addition, a mail program that speaks IMAP can manipulate the mailboxes on the mail server.
