    Funny Spam Mail

    I have an email account with hotmail and the other day I received a spam mail which was supposely sent from my account. The email address that was in the "To" place is an email address that I have never heard of. My point to this is that some of the spammer seem to be setting up account in places like hotmail and yahoo but maybe there's is way for spammer to hide their email addresses by having emails display other peoples email addresses, which could mean that innocent people are getting their email accounts frozen for no reason. I would like to hear what others think of this.

    Fake the sending address.
    Put the primary target (whether fake or real, it doesn't matter) in the To field

    Place the intended recipients in BCC field...


    That's just one way it could be done...

    yeah but the FROM filed is her e-mail address.. so basically it looks like she got an e-mail from her self.

    ------------
    To: random@someplace.com
    From: angelicky@hotmail.com
    BCC: angelicky@hotmail.com
