What is the Snapshot API?

Headers

Email messages have headers that provide metadata about the message itself. Most of this information is hidden from the person reading an email message. You can use some of this information to verify that the snapshot came from a Linden Lab server.

The following headers are available.

Parameter Data type Description
X-Originating-IP string IP of simulator. [216.82.41.11]
Subject string Subject of message
Sender string email address of www-data account on simulator. "www-data" <www-data@sim8938.agni.lindenlab.com>
From string Combination of address and name. Note: name is not always avatar name.
Date date Date of snapshot in Pacific timezone.

Details

The HTML content will contain details of the snapshot in a comment tag:

Snapshot

The snapshot is a JPEG image. Postcards have two images, including a logo. The snapshot file name is always called "secondlife-postcard.jpg".
