Greetings to all on the bleeping computer forum.


I received an email from someone I know (but don't trust) today, and when I looked at the sender info, this was revealed:


 <XXXXXXXXX@gmail.com> via gmail.com.2976833baf844404.email81.com 

(the X's were inserted by me so as not to reveal this person's email address publickly.)


I have never seen info like this when someone I know sends me an email.

Does anyone out there know where this "tail" of information (highlighted in red) comes from, or what it means?


Thanks in advance.  :)
