SPAM from "... campaign office of Representative Ocasio-Cortez! ..."

Hi,

it seems that I get a SPAM mail with contents as you see in Subject.

Anybody else?

Not here.

Are you in her district?

No "Unsubcribe" in the email?

Whilst I personally believe that the post above, is not appropriate for 
a software support mailing list, have you tried examining the full 
headers of the malicious email messages?

I doubt that the messages are being sent from the woman's campaign 
office (I am not one of her constituents - I am in another country), 
and, I think that her name is probably spelled wrong.

The malicious email probably comes from one of Trump's co-conspirators, 
trying to create ill-will against the legally elected USA members of the 
federal parliament.

But, if you have not already, examine the full header of the messages.

It just occurred to me - if the subject field of the message, included 
the exclamation mark as shown, the message was probably sent by Trump 
himself (the inappropriate exclamation mark, is Trump's callsign), if 
not his co-conspirators (the ones that re left at the outhouse, after 
most of them have jumped off the sinking ship).

But, examine the full message headers of the messages.

I don't have this particular case, but I got 2 spams mail per day
All the parts of the header are différent each time.
the ONLY PARTIALLY constant part is as you can see here from 5 mails:

Received: from server1.tickentrapens.com (server1.tickentrapens.com [81.29.1.107] (may be forged))
Received: from api-1.cliand.com (api-1.cliand.com [81.29.1.48] (may be forged))
Received: from news1.afrophree.com (news1.afrophree.com [81.29.1.46] (may be forged))
Received: from news1.afrophree.com (news1.afrophree.com [81.29.1.46] (may be forged))
Received: from cloud-1.alizarcresit.com (cloud-1.alizarcresit.com [81.29.1.47] (may be forged))

All the parts of the header are différent each time. EXCEPT that the IP 
adress is related to one domain. To partially solve may problem... I 
create a message filter: Match any of the following Received -contains- 
[81.29.0. Received -contains- [81.29.1. .... until: Received -contains- 
[81.29.15. Move message to : MY-JUNK I CANNOT STOP THE ANNOYING SPAMS 
..... If you have an idea ....

I can't imagine "Trump himself" taking the time to spam Rainer's 
mailbox, but that's just me - he does spend his time in mysterious ways.
Here's an appropriate link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kAi26r99_0 
(sorry!)

As to Ray_Net's ways of avoiding spam, my strategies are as follows:
- Use a mail-system with a spam filter, gmx (even the freemail version) 
allow you adequate ways of configuring the beast.
- Use email alias(es) for activities where you may come to the notice of 
spammers, gmx (even the freemail version) allows you two or three. 
Mails to Macrosith@gmx.be (I made that one up) will automatically land 
in your inbox.  If Macrosith suddenly starts attracting spam, junk the 
address.  I have multiple aliases for multiple email addresses, any 
mails I send out have the real address but addresses I enter in feedback 
forms are the aliases.

I don't know if GMX operate in Belgium, and they do send you their own 
spam mails - I'd estimate five a month, I have a filter - if you use 
their freemail.
My gmx spam filter is set up to send me a mail just after midnight if 
anything gets flagged as spam in the previous 24 hours.  The mail 
contains the Senders and their Subjects, if I think it might be a false 
positive then I log in and check.  Sometimes I go months without any 
such mail, then there will be one a night for a week.

What tool can I use to examine full mail headers of a specific message?
I'm using {User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:52.0) 
Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4} on Debian Stretch.

TIA

Two ways right in the message window:

View>Headers>All

View>Message Source

/df

Thank you.
I should have thought of Ctrl-U as I regularly use it when having web 
page issues.

I am running SeaMonkey version 2.53.5.1 on UbuntuMATE 20.10 .

In this version, and, I expect that this functionality would also apply 
to your version, in the menu bar at the top of the window, select View 
then Headers, and then, the default selected option is "Normal" - 
instead, select "All".

For most of my email, I download the email using alpine (previously 
known as pine), and it is very good for functionality such as viewing 
headers, and, filtering.
