Hey there!

Could someone help me out please?

This message keeps flashing every few seconds, or minutes and it's super annoying. I've searched for "Mrs.", "yama", "yama@primerib.jp" and "Joy Mouranima" in all of my mailboxes within my client, but to no avail.

Please help me out, it's super annoying and is holding me from my work.

Thank You!

With kind regards

P.S.: I also searched the webmail interface of my mailboxes, also haven't found the culprit email :(

Solved, it was in a folder, that wasn't tracked by my client and it wasn't indexed in webmail interface, had to find it with eyecheck.

Btw. would it be possible somehow to define mail address that's being invaded? The account I mean? Because now I only see message data, but not account it's affecting. Is it even possible?

All information available to the IMAP scanner are already logged.

Hey there @Marcos! Thank You kindly for Your superfast reply!

Well, I noticed that, but the information is/are very limited and superficial :(. In general, they contain only what sender wanted me to see, e.g. in this case, sender sent the mail to him/herself and the true receipients were left in bcc.

Is it technically possible to identify an e-mail account that the particular file/message landed in? I know that most likely not, I honestly can't find any possible way to identify the particular e-mail account, besides the obvious method You mentioned [the receipient]. But when my e-mail is in bcc, it's all faint.

That is the case of this message, all the recipients were in bcc, whilst the only visible address was the target address that was the senders address 🤷‍♂️
