from eSnipe's RovatronTM bidding server.|

more or fewer headers depending on how your email reader is
The most important header is the subject,
which identifies the email as an eSnipe notification. If you won the
auction, it says "eSnipe win!" If it says something else,
like "eSnipe results," see the "Results" section for details.
