I don't think that there is an internet connection with beyond the grave yet, but anything is possible. More likely someone has hacked his account.

It's not that hard to set up your email account to send automated emails in the future. Email marketers do it all the time. They will spend a day writing up a bunch of emails, set them to send at certain dates and then they have the rest of the week free to do other things. I can even do it with my blog. I write out the post, set the date that I want it to be posted and if I die between now and that date, people will think that I am "blogging from beyond the grave" if they are gullible enough.

The fact that the email included a personal joke between he and his friend shows that the email was from him and not a hacker, but he would have just written up a bunch of emails while he was alive and set them up to send at certain dates after his death.

I am surprised that there is a service for it though, I hope people don't have to pay for this service. It can be easily done with a gmail account and I think you can do it with hotmail too. I am sure that there are many other free email services that allow you to do the same thing.

I guess this way you could wait until your dead to fess up or tell someone what you really think about them.

Too wild. Never occurred to me to set up emails to be sent beyond the grave. Amazing what people will do for a buck.

It's a pretty cool thing to do, if you have a morbid/black sense of humour. I'd find it pretty funny knowing that after I died I could still be freaking out some friend of mine with a pre-scheduled email from beyond the grave. Imagine you know your best friend is having an affair with your wife, but you don't want to show him or your wife that you know. You could wait till after your untimely death to send him an email, "I know you've been banging my wife Dave! I can see everything from up here". I bet you he'd fly off his rocker.

I have to disagree with Suzieice.
You'd be surprised with how much information about a person you can get from the internet.
You just need to know where to look.
A hacker could easily get this kind of information and more.
