in reply to unobfuscate IPs

Could you give an example of the text that this decodes and where in an email to look for the text?

Cheers!

    It only "unobfuscates" things that are numeric, such as the example shown, which is a hexadecimal number, or decimal numbers such as '218020952'. This might appeaear in a URL as: http://218020952/dirty-pictures.html However, a persual of more recent spam shows few using this form any more. More typical examples also include HTML escaping, eg:
    http://%77%77%77%2E%66%70%63%6D%61%67%61%7A%69%6E%65%2E%6E%65%74/
    for this form, use
    perl -MURI::Escape -e ' print uri_unescape("http://%77%77%77%2E%66%70% +63%6D%61%67%61%7A%69%6E%65%2E%6E%65%74/") . "\n"'
    where the preceding was all on one line.
