    it's farsi. if you're genuinely interested in what it says - i'm guessing it's spam - then i can email it to an iranian friend of mine if you like?

    That's a good way to phrase it. Me too.

    ok well i've sent it to my friend, but he's got exams on at the mo and doesn't get to the internet that often so may take quite a while. mean times tho, i had a look at it, and with the aid of a bit of arabic-inspired guessing and an online dictionary, it seems to say:

    x-overland-admiral-general-general/brigadier-colonel-major-captain-lieutenant-warrant officer-sergeant-corporal- etc etc

    can't work out all of the words, but basically it seems just to be a list of military roles, I bet if it was sent from a middle eastern computer it set all sorts of alarm bells ringing! in fact, the syrian mukhabarat may well be on their way to seize my computer just for reading it - time to go before i get deported!...

    زمینی = overland, terestrial
    سرلشکر = major, general
    سرهنگ = colonel
    سروان = captain
    ستوان = lieutenant
    استوار = warrant officer
