    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.

    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.
