    Some email clients show the referrer and some don't. Based on my tests, Gmail blanks it, while clicking on a link within a Yahoo! email gives a referrer that looks like this:

    Code:
    http://us.mc361.mail.yahoo.com/mc/showMessage?fid=Inbox&sort=date&order=down&startMid=0&.rand=869505266&da=0&midIndex=0&mid=1_107460_ANqzo0IAAFnUSZHALQnPSV8S0Tw&f=1&nextMid=1_106809_ANmzo0IAAMKjSZGzwAyIEU84%2FZU&m=1_107460_ANqzo0IAAFnUSZHALQnPSV8S0Tw,1_106809_ANmzo0IAAMKjSZGzwAyIEU84%2FZU,1_106201_ANmzo0IAATH0SZGfCABbpDLsI9U,1_104820_ANezo0IAALxhSZEH8wvkjmANHJc,1_102849_AN2zo0IAAULfSZDDzA8XW2ZsX8w,1_98975_ANizo0IAASOxSZB82wf1UyhO848,
    
    Hotmail/Live referrers look like this:
