Hello, man! i think that you are not right! Cyber clubs in Russia really have The Bat programs! Much people keep their base on zip diskette or on usb flash drive. So they can come to cyber club, to join their usb flash drive to usd port then to enter in the Bat and to specify the path to their mail base! and then visa versa! do you understand?! Man, no need to talk about the things you don't know well!

What is a BAT ???
Please explain to me.

The first and second posts both say clearly, "The Bat" is the name of an e-mail client and it's commonly found in Internet Cafes in Russia and other FSU countries. An e-mail client is something similar to Microsoft Outlook Express.

SEE ON X MAILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!the bat and the versionnumber!

Here's when it becomes a clear warning sign: If the girl claims to be emailing you from an Internet cafe, but the headers of her emails show "The Bat!" as her "X-Mailer". If she is truly using an Internet cafe, she would be sending you her messages through the web-based interface of her free email services, and not using a local email program such as "The Bat!" or any other. So, if the "X-Mailer" shows as "Outlook Express" or any other "locally installed" email software and she claims to be emailing you from an Internet cafe, it's the same clear warning sign. However "The Bat!" seems to be their email program of choice, and is one of the only ones that can easily be setup to work with these free email services.
You can find this information by looking at the full headers of her email, and look for a line like this: X-Mailer: The Bat!

Web mail such as yahoo.com and others can be managed via POP3 using an e-mail client. She need not be using the webmail front-end. One line that gives you a clue is adsl-68-125-216-108.dsl.irvnca.pacbell.net
This looks like it originates here:

Reverse IP: No websites hosted using this IP address
Reverse DNS: adsl-68-125-216-108.dsl.irvnca.pacbell.net
Pac Bell Internet Services PBI-NET-10 (NET-68-120-0-0-1) -
PPPoX Pool - rback3.irvnca SBC068125216000031118 (NET-68-125-216-0-1) -
Maybe I'm all mixed up, but doesn't this address point to a digital subscriber line, "irvnca" - may be Irvine, California? On the other hand, this may simply be a machine with an open relay or an open anonymous proxy active, so the originator may be attempting to conceal its point of origin.

Someone who tried to scam me this week/last week used The Bat! too. It was in the header of the email, similar to Captown's.

Yeah, well they all use the bat, either at home or in internet cafe. The way to tell which is like this. If the header says a dial-up server is being used, it's a home connection. Internet cafes do use dial-ups.


We gotta a long way to go today baby
