There are more and more complaints about email header forgery recently. In fact, we received spam emails from @paypal sometimes, while we know that Paypal will not send out any spam. They just couldn’t do anything about it.
The bad news is, you cannot do anything as well. We also can’t do anything to stop the spammers.
There are clients who may tell us this:
“I have been receiving bounced emails from email addresses that I have never sent to. It mentioned “Failed delivery” of message.
When I look at the email messages, it appears that the messages come from my domain name such as:
Looks like someone is sending out spam emails from the server.”
Here, we have to assure you that these spam emails were not sent from your domain / email account. You do not need to worry actually, nobody can go to your email account without your account information.
Put it simply, there are spammers who have forged your email header data.
Most email client software would allow you to view full email header. In outlook express, right click on the email, choose “properties” and a new window will pop up. Click on “details” tab and you will see the full header data.
