Re: Email address spoofing

E-mail spoofing is a term used to describe e-mail activity in which the sender address and other parts of the e-mail header are altered to appear as though the e-mail originated from a different source. A spoofed email is when the sender purposely alters parts of the email to fraudulently appear as though someone else sent it. E-mail spoofing is a technique commonly used for spam e-mail and phishing to hide the origin of an e-mail message.

Re: Email address spoofing

E-mail spoofing is the forgery of an e-mail header so that the message appears to have originated from someone or somewhere other than the actual source. Acebird is a web app which allow you to send email that appears to come from any email address.

Re: Email address spoofing

A spammer needs to send spam emails and they don't want to use an address associated with them. Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) used email spoofing in .The main protocol used in sending e-mail, does not include an authentication mechanism. Spoofed email is email that appears to come from one source, when it actually does not.
