Unsolicited Ireland email database commercial emails (UCE), commonly known as spam, are an unfortunate part of having an email account. However, what is worse than receiving email messages that you know are junk, is receiving electronic mail that appears legitimate because you recognize the email hostname (I.E. Gmail), but you are not familiar with the senders address and are unsure of their integrity.
If this situation occurs, you may feel that the message could contain questionable content. Thus, it is best not to open the mail and instead try to find out information on the email owner, such as their name, IP address, location, and any other details that can be provided. Why shouldn’t you open the e-mail and/or respond to the sender to inquire who they are, especially if the sender is using a trusted and well known web mail provider, such as Gmail?
First of all, the message could contain malicious content, such as a virus, spyware or malware. Secondly, it might not be a good idea to initiate contact with the sender because you don’t know their intentions or if they even exist, as the message could very well be spam. Hence, what you should do is lookup the electronic mail address in a reverse email lookup online.
If the address you would like to look up is associated with Google mail, you will need to find a reverse email search that includes Gmail addresses in its directory. You can achieve this by including the word “Gmail” in your general web search for a reverse e-mail directory. You can also discover this information by looking to see if the website that provides the reverse lookup service lists the subdomains it features on their site, such as in their F.A.Q section. Nonetheless, if you are still not sure, you can always go ahead with your search by entering in the address you wish to investigate to see if any results are returned.
