A few days ago, I sent an email to a Chinese company that operates in China.
It was to inform them that my family’s company, A&R Technologies, was having an annual conference in China, and that my company was looking to hire Chinese programmers.
“We are hiring,” I wrote, “and we can help you out.”
The reply I received was almost identical to what I’d received in China — an email that was identical in almost every way, except that it said something like, “Hi, you’re welcome to come to our office for the conference.”
And yet the same email was sent to a number of different people, asking them to sign up.
It sounded like an email for a different company.
I was surprised, because I was expecting it to be for a particular company, with a specific purpose.
The message itself was a bit of a letdown, but I was also a little curious to see how this email would be received by people outside of China.
So I went back to the email and tried to find out how this thing worked.
It turns out, the Chinese company had no idea that I was sending them this email.
It didn’t even know I was writing to them.
So what was going on?
It turns the tables on us.
When you send an email from an American company to a company from China, that company has the ability to track your location, the IP address, the date of the email, and other data.
So how can you tell if you’re actually sending a Chinese email?
First, you might want to look at how your email client handles location information.
Many Gmail users have been asked to send emails from their homes and apartments to different addresses, and Google Maps will automatically give you a “distinctive geographic address.”
Google+ lets you see this information.
But if you are sending an email with a location-aware email client like Gmail or Outlook, Google will tell you exactly which address is sending the email.
If your email clients’ location-sensing is enabled, Gmail will send you an email telling you if the address sending your email is actually in China or not.
Google Maps is also a great location-savvy tool, but it will only show you the approximate location of the address that sent your email.
This means that if your email sender’s IP address is in Beijing, and your recipient’s IP is in London, it’s unlikely that Google Maps can tell that you’re sending a message from London to Beijing.
If you use a different email client, or you want to be more specific, you can turn on location-based filters in your email program.
But as we’ll see, this isn’t always the case.
Google Analytics, for example, can show you when your email was received, but you’ll also see that it was sent from Beijing to New York, for instance.
Google also doesn’t show you how far you’re from the location of your sender.
If the email sent to you was sent by a company in China and received by a person in New York City, for some reason, Google Analytics won’t show it.
But in this case, Google tells you that the email was delivered to New Yorkers, which makes sense.
For example, a recent study showed that people in California receive approximately 80 percent of all spam emails from China.
This is because many Chinese companies operate in the United States, and the vast majority of Chinese spam sends are sent to California.
If an email is sent from New York to California, it will have a higher likelihood of being seen by Google Analytics.
But it won’t appear in Google Analytics because the sender isn’t in China (and there’s a good chance that the sender’s email address isn’t from China either).
This is where a location filter comes in.
Location filters are just one way that Google Analytics can tell you that your email sent from your American company was actually sent from a specific address in China: the address where the email is delivered.
If that same email sent by another American company from a different location in China came back from New Yorkers to California and Google Analytics could see it, the email would not be shown in Google Maps.
This happens because Google doesn’t know how far the recipient is from the original sender.
Google doesn, however, know how long the email has been sent to New Orleans, Louisiana, or New York.
The answer is: not long.
The longer the email went from the initial sender to NewYork, the more likely it is that it is in China at the time.
So, if you send a message to a foreign company from an address that was not in China for a long time, Google may not show it in the search results, but in fact may be able to show it as a “delivery address” in the Google Analytics results.
Google won’t give this information out because it can’t prove that the message actually arrived in China from that address.
But you can use a search
