Re: Danger? What EXACTLY does the following mean.

[cid:AEFFA5E2-3144-480E-B8B9-60B6B6CDF0A1@socal.rr.com]

As far as I know, these "CID:" thingies are identifiers so as to allow links to attachments in the same mail. In this case, the attachment is most likely the image that was forwarded. It is common to use the domain name (such as "@socal.rr.com") as part of the identifying name.

This is correct. The use of the 'cid:' URL scheme for Content-ID is described in RFC2392.

(Rest here is an amplification of points already made, not specifically in response to you).

The fact that it showed up in the user-visible presentation of the mail message just says that some piece of mail software goofed along the way. Nothing to be alarmed at, and no need to suspect foul play. Plenty of email software fondles the message on its way; it's a miracle it works as well as it does

Fondles??? Email goes through the TSA? I know other three-letter agencies get a copy.
