This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.

The email itself is unremarkable. Sent from a US computer (probably a botnet)

The website is also unremarkable. It's a form to input webmail info. This goes to a server elsewhere, but the form does not appear to be directed to any particular webmail provider. Just a wide net.

The sting in the tail of this site however, and the reason you are discouraged from clicking the above link, is the invisible iframe on the page. This links to other sites and this is a common mechanism to deliver drive by downloads of malware. Nothing shown on my computer, but then Linux just laughs (ha ha) at these things. However, if anyone has a sacrificial windows box .............

iframes connect to various Vietnam sites. I haven't bothered to try and track down the ultimate source of any malicious payload.
Google, the answer to so many questions!
