All this is true, but there is nothing you can do about it.  Referrer information is supplied by the browser -- there is no way for the server to find this information unless the browser supplies it.  As Jack points out, the browser does not always provide referrer information.

There is a caveat to this... if the link is a redirect from javascript (see below) the referrer is blank. Also, If you are using this to validate the referrer as an authorized link and you are creating links in emails, you have to allow them through.

Hope this helps.

 

<script>

document.location.href = 'http:.....foo@foobar.fwx'

</script>

referrer is empty.
