Can someone please confirm that referrers

[us.f143.mail.yahoo.com...] a whole lot of numbers)

are coming from email links or newsletter links? I'm only guessing.

That's an email box at Yahoo mail. So, umm, if you send out your newsletter as email, then it is a newsletter link ;-) Either way, it's email.

A funny thing with referrers from free browser accesed e-mail applications is that many times they are not very well protected. Once I tryed to request the referrers from such places and just like that I had full acces to the poor guys e-mail box. The problem was that this company (not Yahoo mail) had put the user name and password in the querystring! That is stupid :)
