Hi, I am trying to diagnose a problem for a friend. He receives email (he uses Outlook) from varying yahoo addresses which is spam (the content is only a URL. But the issue is that the "to" address is not his. His address is [email][email protected][/email], but the recipient address is [email][email protected][/email]. The yahoo and hotmail "name"s are arbitrary string of characters, which display as genuine looking names.
Can anyone explain to me how this is done, and whether there is anything I can do about it?
