A SPAMMER IS SPOOFING MY EMAIL ADDRESS - WHAT CAN I DO?
The Earliest K-12 Education Mailing List in the World 1989
Tom Van Vleck and Noel Morris had electronic mail running on CTSS at MIT, and I believe it was 1963 or 1964, not 1965.
The very first e-mail was sent in 1971.
Computer programmer Ray Tomlinson is credited by many experts and historians with developing the technology that we understand today as email. Dave Crocker, who helped write several foundational standards documents about messaging over the internet. John Vittal, one of Crocker’s co-authors.
Ray Tomlinson is best known for having sent the first text letter between two computers on ARPANET in ‘71—y’know, an email. He also picked out the @ sign. A modest career.... Tomlinson, who began working on early inter-computer messaging explained to us how he became well-versed with [the] linchpins of modern email.“[We] had most of the headers needed to deliver the message (to:, cc:, etc.) as well as identifying the sender (from:) and when the message was sent (date:) and what the message was about. I chose the Latin word “re” meaning “about” for this. This apparently [was] too obscure and was replaced with “subject:”. However, “re:” is still use in the subject field to refer to the subject of the message to which the message is a reply. RFC 561 documents the headers as of 1973. Before that the standard was de facto. You could include any header you wanted in a message, but you had better use to:, cc:, etc. if you wanted the receiving program to understand.”
Tomlinson died in March of this year. His New York Times obituary began: Raymond Tomlinson, the computer programmer who in 1971 invented email as it is known today and in the process transformed the “at” sign — @ — from a sparely used price symbol to a permanent fixture in the lives of millions of computer users around the world, died on Saturday at his home in Lincoln, Mass. He was 74.
