For Whitecurve . . .
When I send myself an e-mail, the following is what SmartWhois shows for information about the sender. You will note "X-Originating-IP: [18.104.22.168] Received : from robert c-67-167-175-169.client.comcast.net[22.214.171.124])"

Every e-mail from me has the 184.108.40.206 IP address embedded in it, as did the damaging e-mail (see above post, Mon Mar 07, 2005 2:47 pm) Fortunately the individual receiving the damaging mail only has those numbers and not my e-mail address also, as SmartWhois shows..The person receiving the "bad" mail and I have NEVER had any e-mail exchanges . . . I have only learned about this from a trusted third party (who does exchange regularly with this person). So, since the 220.127.116.11 shows in every e-mail from me and it also appeared in the bad mail sent to (let's simply call him "Fred" for easy identification) Fred, then it is suspected that that mail originated from me. Again, I have NEVER sent any mail to "Fred", he has never sent any mail to me. I only know of "Fred" peripherally via my trusted third party friend.
I am sorry to sound as though I'm belaboring this but it has become extremely critical to me to prove that I truly did not send any damaging mail to "Fred". I realize I may be having difficulty articulating the issue as it is complicated to explain.
So, sorting out all the above, if I am "18.104.22.168" but have never sent any mail to "Fred", how did that number get into "Fred's" hands?
Thank you for your patience with me,
