I have a couple of questions about email. I received a spam email today and it said it was sent from one of my old email addresses to the same email address that I only use to receive email. I know I didn't send anything from this account. How can they use my email address in the from line? Is this just a trick or is this something I should report? Another problem I had was about 2 weeks ago I got some undelivered email back for some hotmail addresses I never heard of, they were supposed to be sent from the same email address as the spam I got today.

Well I had the same thing happen to me so I changed my password and it still happened, then I remember somebody telling me that there are ways to clone an email address so I figured that is what happened and just deleted the junk and that worry about. Well I'm sure somebody else can provide better information on this but I have heard that its possible to clone email address. I hope this helps.



Yes it does help; I feel a little better now. I just changed my password in-case someone got hold of it. I don't like the idea of someone using my email address. I don't like junk mail and would never send it to anyone else.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
