LONG BEACH (coup2k.com) March 24, 2001 -- Rick Hauptman, California Democratic Party Computer Caucus Chair, in a written statement March 20, declared "The Diva" a "total a**hole," and the BBBR website "a mess." Many alleged BBBR Resistance Fighters took the time to write letters of defense and support. The talented Mr. Hauptman has now declared these letters to all have a single author, writing under various e-mail aliases, namely: The Diva.THE DIVA'S INTENTION TO "MOVE ON"
From "You Are the Champions: An Open Letter from The Diva to Her Internet Defenders" (March 22, 2001):
"...Barring some further development that demands comment, this Open Letter will be my final site post on Hauptman. I am ready to "move on" (all except for wishing gonad zits on him for the rest of his life...) ...And please know that I appreciate everything you have done for me, and been to me, these last months. You are my silver lining, my heroes, my champions, my sanity, my salvation, my support, my friends, and my allies." FURTHER DEVELOPMENT

An Open Letter to the Chair of the
California Democratic Party COMPUTER Caucus
Dear Mr. Hauptman:
If you will turn your attention to the e-mail above, which you sent to me from your COMPUTER early this morning, you will see that after your chortle ("LOLOL") there are several lines of text that you, yourself, did not write, while composing this latest e-mail attack on your COMPUTER.
This is what is known in COMPUTER circles as an e-mail 'header'.
Allow me to acquaint you with the concept of the COMPUTER e-mail 'header'. This is the portion of e-mails you receive through your COMPUTER, which explains the route the e-mails took in getting to your COMPUTER e-mailbox, and identifies not only the sender of the e-mail in question, but the 'ISP' (Internet Service Provider) used by the sender's COMPUTER. (See the bolded and smaller font text above.)
Let's examine the headers on your latest attack e-mail. For the purposes of this exercise, it is simplest to invert the header to follow the e-mail's route from your COMPUTER to my COMPUTER in chronological time.
HEADERS CREATED BY YOUR COMPUTER:
X-Mailer: AOL 5.0 for Windows sub 51 THE SOFTWARE YOU USED TO SEND E-MAIL
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit THE ENCODING OF YOUR OUTGOING E-MAIL
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" THE FONT OF YOUR OUTGOING E-MAIL
MIME-Version: 1.0 YOUR 'Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions' SOFTWARE PROGRAM
To: email@example.com THE E-MAIL ADDRESS YOU TYPED TO SEND YOUR MAIL
Subject: All your aliases are hysterical THE TEXT YOU TYPED TO INDICATE ITS CONTENT
Date: Sat, 24 Mar 2001 04:36:59 EST DATE/TIME SENT FIELD ADDED BY YOUR SOFTWARE
HEADERS CREATED BY YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (AOL):
Message-ID:<firstname.lastname@example.org> UNIQUE ID# ADDED BY YOUR ISP (AOL)
From: RBHauptman@aol.com AOL USER/SENDER IDENTIFIED BY YOUR ISP (AOL)
for <email@example.com>; RECIPIENT E-MAIL IDENTIFIED BY YOUR ISP (AOL)
Sat, 24 Mar 2001 04:36:59 -0500 (EST) DATE/TIME E-MAIL WAS STAMPED 'SENT' BY AOL

HEADERS CREATED BY MY (coup2k.com's) WEBHOST ISP (ctyme):

Received: from imo-m02.mx.aol.com [126.96.36.199] AOL SERVER/ISP# ctyme RECIEVED
Return-Path: <RBHauptman@aol.com> ACTUAL SENDER OF E-MAIL (MATCHES)
X-POP3-Rcpt: email@example.com METHOD BY WHICH I RETRIEVED YOUR E-MAIL (POP3)
So, let's sum up:
Not only can you determine the path an e-mail took to reach your COMPUTER, but also the ISP used to send that e-mail (and therefore the ISP of the sender), simply by looking at the e-mail's headers.
Check the e-mails you are certain were sent by my COMPUTER, and the headers of these e-mails, to determine the originating ISP. In order for all of the e-mails you have received to have originated with me, how many ISP's would I, and my COMPUTER, have to be a client of?
I eagerly await the conclusion of your COMPUTER research.
