Most spammers prefer to put the information in an image, but others again prefer to send their messages in plain text format. Sometimes the images become corrupt or some people configure their e-mail clients to prevent images from displaying.

We don't know why spammers continue to date their e-mails so far back into the past. Most spam filters will flag a message if the date of the e-mail is more than 96 hours before the date it was received. It is impossible for a message to take longer than 96 hours to be delivered, because most servers are configured to abort the sending process if the e-mail can't be delivered within this time frame.
