True IP Spoof in Email

swong asked 3 years ago

Is it possible to truly spoof an IP address on an email? That is, when sending an email is it possible to change the X-originating-IP Address to a specific IP address? I'm not referring to using a proxy. My understanding is that the mail servers confirm that the email is coming from the actual IP Address?

Thanks for your question swong.

I will only say that it is possible to select an IP address to spoof in an email.

The method will not be discussed on this or any other board by me because it is almost always used for things that are improper or illegal.
