From another site, extract:

Who would do such a thing? The same sort of people who have perpetuated some of the top urban legends such as the claim that Mr. Rogers had a former secret career as a trained assassin, and that ATM users can quickly contact police in the event of an attempted robbery by entering their PIN in reverse. The cyberspace is full of lies disguised as inspiration, political alerts, health warnings, and prayers. Many come complete with enhanced photographs. The ones that are especially ironic are those that state, “Even Snopes has confirmed this,” along with a link to Snopes that attributes it as false. People who forward such emails, obviously do not check the link themselves. (source: To Forward or Not to Forward? By Patti Maguire Armstrong

Forwarded Emails

Forwarded e-mails by category - Way to Organize Email Overload

Believe it or not forwarded emails (by friends, etc., and by robots) are not just random, they can most probably fall into some categories (and you can make your own, as well), for example:
>>Friendly fires:

  • Jokes -- cheap, tragic, comic, satire, sensitive, racial, humorous, etc.
  • Funny thoughts -- kiddish, adult, immature, political, etc.
  • Educational / informative -- work related, stress related, occupational, etc
  • Spiritual / Religious -- evangelical, inspirational, motivational, emotional, etc.
  • Pics / Comics / Cartoons
  • News - local, regional, global, historic
  • Audio / Videos / Multimedia
  • Much more

  • >>E-mails forwarded by robots (auto mailers or machines), reach your in-box--like it or not, want it or not, even if you block them they manage their route:
  • Scam emails
  • spam e-mails trying to sell you the usual crap like fake Viagra, Cialis, pecker enlargement pills, etc.
  • phishing e-mails (which are also scams that you don't want), and in rare cases, an attachment containing a virus or a trojan horse. Don't click on any links or open any attachments in any of the e-mails you receive in your catcher account.
  • more spam / scam / chain emails, bulk email, here:

    >>Note: Bottomline, you still have the options: Delete / mark the sender as spam / forward at ease
