Sorry friends, cudda swore I posted a new thread in this forum on Golden Casino a week or so ago but tarnations! if I can't find it now. Any how, it was called "Do Not Download Golden Casino's so and so software, or something. I shot the casino the link - dang! - it'll still be in my sent email, huh?! SEE! a few synapses ARE still firing! Here's what I found in my email today, whether it proves a point or not. I never get these warnings from any other casino's emails, you?

Dang, I guess my eyes is not really good enough. Crud, need to go to my Optometrist for a recheck.

Its a email with a pink warning across the top. It says, "", F! I don't know what it says its too small, silly. Wait. OK. It says, " This message has been blocked for your safety. Open message " -the preceding is the stuff written across the top in the "pink" band - bernynhel and then:
"More for your pockets‏
From: Golden Casino (goldencasino@onlinemailservices.com)
This message may be dangerous. Learn more
Sent: Thu 1/31/08 9:01 AM
Reply-to: Golden Casino (goldencasino@onlinemailservices.com)
To: bernynhel@[I][B]xxx[/B][/I].com "

That's it. My POINT was the pink warning thingy across the top. I NEVER EVER get those from online casinos. Then, again, I haven't been duped into opening/downloading anything from a casino like GC for a long, long time - since the first "888" BS days for those of you willing to admit that they're THAT old to remember that far back (I'm talking Internet years - see "dogyears"). :D

What's that from? Outlook express?


edit: nevermind, I found it's from xxx. I'll be posting a report on this soon, let me do some sleuthing :)

edit2: Just curious, was the email mostly graphics with little to no text?

edit3: Basically, Hotmail is seeing it as spam, and marking it as such; basically saying it could be dangerous to visit the links listed in the email. It goes further by not displaying the images.

Most web based free email services do the same by not showing the images, because that is actually one way spammers can confirm that your email address is indeed active, so they can add it to their list of "working" addresses.

Displaying the images in known spam emails is just as bad as using a "remove" link in the spam itself.

I got one a those mouses with the built in magnifier - tried it on my little email screenshot down there - no good. Just magnified a blurry, illegible version of what I posted. Heh-heh. The orig. file too big for CM's upload cap and I musta under-compensated. Srry!

There's no "thanks A LOT" thingy to click under you're reply post, just a "thanks" or I'd a clicked it. But thanks A LOT for giving up all that game. Was trying to keep my email on the DL! :thumbsup:

Yeah all I needed to see was the warning and who it was from. Like I said, that's the only casino email ever flagged like that and I get loads of email from casinos I know and don't know so there it is there. Emails with those warnings have never been worth more than a "delete" action in my exp. Guess it's time to relegate that email account to "Junk" or "Throw-down" status. Specially when I'm getting 100 emails a day now and only 1 in 10 are anything I'd look at. Lol, my porn email address! That's the ticket! And :thumbsup: to winbig on that edit job! lol

I think it was flagged because of the very little (or none at all) text in the message...
