Ah, but I did maths at uni, so I know the meaning of 04. It's the number after 03.

But there's no clue in the email about *how* I might view it in HTML mode, and there's no link to go to.

Not that I would go to your web site. Because I already know the meaning of 04.

And ...

I got a bounce from Google, telling me that it blocked something because it was harmful. Well, thanks for that, Google, but I just counted the number of trojans in my mailbox sent over the last six hours, and there's 103 of them. Blocking one hasn't really done much.

  1. A lot of spam lately pretending to come from HMRC, with dodgy attachments, blocked by Gmail. "Final payment request GBP 2,512.82"

    More worryingly, they are targeted at email address ONLY used for dealings with HMRC + payments to them via Santander, so suggests one of them has suffered data breach.
