Man sends e-mails from beyond the grave

The family and friends of Jack Froese have been receiving mysterious posthumous e-mails from him.
Jack's friend Tim Hart was the first to receive one such message. He had been browsing his computer one night when an e-mail arrived that appeared to be from Jack's address. "I'm watching," the title read, inside was a message pertaining to a private joke between the two friends that could have only come from Jack. His cousin Jimmy McGraw also received a similar e-mail. "I'd like to say Jack sent it, just because I look at it as he's gone, but he's still trying to connect with me," he said. "Trying to tell me to move along, to feel better."
When Jack Froese, 32, died of a heart arrhythmia in June 2011, he left behind a number of grieving friends and family members. But the BBC reports that several mysterious posthumous emails from Froese's account have brought some happiness and closure to those who were closest to him.

Lmao, They Will Invent Just About Anything .. There is a app for that..... So what other explanation is everyone thinking? Are we really leaning toward this being his Ghost sending out emails from the other side? lol I guess the spirit world is becoming rather advanced. Starting their own ISP's and email services. Come on man......We all know if a email came from a ghost it would not be seen.The letters would be so small they could only be seen by a big magnifying glass on the monitor or printed paper.....Than, a trained , and professional ghost hunter would be able to decipher what is said, a...

Come on man......We all know if a email came from a ghost it would not be seen.The letters would be so small they could only be seen by a big magnifying glass on the monitor or printed paper.....Than, a trained , and professional ghost hunter would be able to decipher what is said, after numerous filters, and enhancements, and than show it to the clients so they could now see what the little dots say....... This is called VSPF.........Very Small Print Phenomena I can't believe you have not heard of this........ HAHAHAHA oh man.... I needed a laugh today!

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 ... [More]

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.
