It's actually fairly easy to spoof an e-mail address in the "From" field. Spammers around the world know exactly how to
do this. You can check by looking at the entire header, most of which is hidden until you tell your mail application to
You cannot assume that every e-mail you get comes from the person who sent it. Too many of the 200,000 (or so) malware
versions in the Windows world look at your computer's e-mail address, copy it, and then send out spam to everyone on
your e-mail address and make it look like it came from you. Pretty easy to do, made much easier since most people
outside of the corporate environment don't bother to keep their protection software up to date and their Windows
versionsat the most current level. I use a Macintosh (which runs on UNIX, not Windows) to protect me against this.
Even if your software is up to date, there are spammer programs that look at every web page address and randomly
generate names and send e-mails using those names to the page to see if they're valid addresses. The majority are not,
but apercentage are. And even a small percentage of 10,000,000 random names produces enough valid e-mail addresses to
make it worthwhile. Even a Mac can't protect against these.
