Any computer guys on the site today that could give me some advice??
Is it possible to trace an email to see if the person on the other end kept or deleted it?

I received an email in regards to a proposal that was sent to me.
We signed a confidentiality agreement but this email freaked me out.

I left out the identifying portion of the email.

"Our security partner ran a scan of our emailed documents sent and it
shows
that the materials are still on your computer.

Please delete asap and confirm via email."


Now I know that nothing on one's computer ever really gets erased but this has me spooked.
Is this possible? I'm pretty sure it can't be legal.

We do it all the time at work but that is on a exchange server. Anything is possible these days.

Well, if its still on your computer there are means to check your computer without you noticing it. If you deleted it, it could still be restored, unless you used a secure deletion tool that overwrites the free space the file left several times with other info.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Spam. Ignore it.

I have no idea who the other party is so I have to make an assumption.

Well I'm guessing they have some sort of software that can do that sort of thing. Its not necessarily spyware.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I figured this was illegal, especially once he stated he had hacked my email.

This is what I received back when I stated the obvious fact that hacking is an illegal act in Canada.

Email passed on to lawyers for further action.

perhaps you should update yourself on the latest technology security
programs."

Thoughts.

This is supposed to be a reputable firm.
