I just noticed an interesting new spam tactic. Spammers are now injecting spam into my Gmail sent mail folder. I view all my mail through thunderbird and my sent mail folder currently has 26 unread messages. Inside the folder, I see several messages sent from me to me with typical spam contents (Hollywood stars threw up! is a sample subject). I’m not familiar enough with the intricacies of SMTP or IMAP to figure out exactly what’s going on here but I’d be interested to hear how this was done.
