Evolution on Debian 6
After an absence of about a week, I downloaded a lot of email stored on my ISP (skymesh.com.au). Since I receive a lot of spams starting about six month ago, I promptly "deleted" those supposed to be spams but when checking the others, I found the "from" and the "subject" now relate to other emails.
For example an expected email from Alice on the subject of Picnic is really a spam and the real email of Alice about the picnic is under the spam "From" Rayshell Jernigan <email@example.com. The "To" (which I just discovered by printing the document) is: "firstname.lastname@example.org" (I am not email@example.com
), the subject is: "Dottin Miccoli" and there is a sort of signature (I am illiterate on the subject) at the bottom as follows:
It is only by accident I discovered the mangling of my emails because a valid (to me) email had the contents of another valid email but 2 valid emails I was expecting contained junk.
I have reported the problem to my ISP and I am awaiting their answer.
To confuse things even more, I got 2 messages, when trying to read my emails, that a kernel failure had happened and a report had been forwarded to the appropriate maintainers.
1) Is my ISP sending emails destined to somebody else? If that is the case, I will open a ticket.
2) Is there something possibly wrong on my Asus laptop that created the kernel failures? Or the mangling of the emails? Or both? If that is the case, what should/could I do?
3) Can I safely read these emails to see what the contents are?
4) If some (valid) emails are deleted for good, should I be able to recover them from my ISP?
Thank you for your help.
