    Nope all my e-mail is atuomatically scanned...there were no attachments and the end of the address is Government.....

    :confused:
    Regards it appearing to be a Government email address, you can pretty much ignore that. I can send you an email appearing to come from [email protected]... it's far too easy to make an email appear to come from any address.

    What would be more interesting, is the actual source of the message... if you post that we can see if it really did originate from HM's Government in which case I'm sure the Sun would be most interested!

    I can confirm for you that that is an address from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, and given I have contacts within the civil service, my contact is at DFES.gov.uk (Dept. for Education & Services), that that is the scanning system that the Government use to check their messages for viruses, (the GSi bit as a "signature").

    Could still be an elaborate hoax... we can have a look at the IP addresses where the email actually originated from if we get the source.

    Regards getting the source Dani, do you have Outlook or Outlook Express? If you do, open the email. Click on file. Click on properties. Click on the details tab. Click on the message source button, and cut and paste. Remember to delete your email address if you want to.

    If it was a hoax, you aint kidding !

    Looks like a genuine address, simply by the signature regarding the virus scan.

    What I mean by that is that it is precisely the wording of the government agencies.

    Could well just have been a typing error on the part of the author of the email.

    But still, sounds like the bloke is looking for someone !

    It'll be there if you hunt. Might be called the message headers if it's not called the message source. Don't worry though, interesting email none the less!

    DTLR isn't that department of trade leisure and resources or something
    Transport, Local Government and the Regions.


    Which:

    (Original post by DTLR Website)
    Most of the other responsibilities of the former Department for Transport Local Government and the Regions (DTLR) will be brought into the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) and put together with his existing related responsibilities for social exclusion and the regions (including the Government Offices in the Regions).
    The evidence continues to roll in.
