It's much more simpler to use a gui mail forger (like E-mail Forger 1.0 or others)... You can also use attachments and other options.

to the people naming programs: that's defeating the purpose of this topic and bringing in kiddie tools, this shows you how to actually do it without a special program (many of them around because it's so simple...)

thanks for this tut, but might want to remind you to spoof your IP before sending? lol

If you worried about you IP being tracked you could always root another box and do it from there. ;)

This is for dinox, sagitarioxp and others wondering why sending fake emails is possible;

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., where stadium is the username, and is the

When you send a mail, the smtp-server you use looks
up the MX-record for the receiving domain, in this case 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.

The mail is then sent from your smtp-server to 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
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.

Hey, i have some kind of problem when using this. Always when i try to enter the source email i get an error.

mail from: <>
501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments

Already tried it without the < > but it always gives me that error.

Probably im just doing something really stupid wrong... :(

Problem with phasma is that it sometimes shows your IP in the headers if you're not using ultranet proxies

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..
