Can anybody read this e-mail header and explain to me why World-net send it to my mail box when it wasn't originally addressed to me. I have tried asking them and got some garbled reply about it being spam so it is sent to more than one address. That doesn't say so on the header, there is only one address in the to: field. It happens heaps of times but often with different addresses.

They could have sent the email to whoever to bcc which doesnt show in the to field... So its possible that it could have gone to more than 1 person.

^^ What he said.

Edit: Kudos for posting the header though. Yay for helpful information!

Yes, thanks for that. Makes sense now you point it out. Never thought of that. :thumbs:
