The reason you are able to send fake emails is due to the natures
of the SMTP-protocol. (Simple Mail Transferring Protocol).
An email-adress consists of two parts, the username and the domain, eg.
firstname.lastname@example.org, where stadium is the username, and hotmail.com is the
When you send a mail, the smtp-server you use looks
up the MX-record for the receiving domain, in this case hotmail.com. MX-records are
a part of the DNS-system just like A-records. The MX-record tells your
SMTP-server what adress the receiving mailserver has, eg. mail1.hotmail.com
The mail is then sent from your smtp-server to mail1.hotmail.com and is further processed
by a storageserver for mails like an IMAP- or POP3-server on the local host. There is also a possibility that mail1.hotmail.com
resends the mail to another mailserver. When the owner connects to his receiving mailserver he gets the email.
As you can see, sending emails does not include a step for validation. If you think about this for a minute, you realise
that there is no way that global validation can be implemented in an easy way. Since everyone, can make their own mailserver,
they can also forge the sending adress of the sender, although there is still a possibility to track fake emails if you looks at the
email headers. This is not a big problem though, since most people donīt even know what email headers are.
This is why you can send fake emails.
If you want to make sure that emails you get arenīt fake, you and your friends need to use digital signatures like PGP.

mail from: <email@example.com>
501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments

Theres a tool called INVADER that spammers are using out there..
It comes with it's own proxy database and you don't need to find SMTP servers for relaying...You will use theirs... best of all your IP is not revealed in the headers..
