Where'd that mail come from?

2009-05-18 21:29:03.221911+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Holger Berndt has written a geo-tagging email source plugin for Claws mail:

The surprising (and somehow scary) result is that it works on a surprisingly large number of mails (in my quick test, almost half of the time), and if it does, it's oftentimes quite accurate, with deviations sometimes as small as 2 or 3 kilometers.

Hrm... finally a good reason to strip my received headers. So you won't be able to tell if I'm at home or at the office when I send that email...

I shell into a remote server most of the time, using PINE for e-mail (fast, clean, virus-free..) so it looks like I am almost always in the same place.

Which is almost never the case. :)
