Could mugus do that if they were smart enough? Here's an article I came across:

Man gets prison after hundreds of thousands of spam e-mails

DENVER(AP) A Colorado man accused of sending hundreds of thousands
of spam e-mails has been sentenced to 21 months in prison after
pleading guilty to tax evasion and falsifying e-mail headers.

Thirty-five-year-old Edward "Eddie" Davidson of Louisville was also
ordered to pay nearly $715,000 to the Internal Revenue Service. He
was sentenced Monday and ordered to report to prison authorities in
May.

Federal prosecutors say Davidson's operation used false e-mail headers
to disguise the sender
. Prosecutors say some of the spam was meant to
dupe stock investors and manipulate markets.

Authorities say Davidson made at least $3.5 million sending e-mails for
nearly 20 companies.

That's just spoofing isn't it? And yes, lads do that.

Vlads are notorious for using spoofed headers.

You need a friendly SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) server, sadly most have been so abused they're no longer friendly, but if you can install your own with a friendly ISP, then everything you need to know is in the RFC (literally "Request For Comments", how standards evolved) - google "RFC SMTP", it's a technical document describing how SMTP works, it's pretty simple stuff if you're tech-savvy.

So he still made almost $3 million after the fine.

Now, lets assume he gets ass-raped once per week in those 21 months, that's roughly ( Laughing ) 84 times total. Is that worth $3 million to you? Confused

Yes, you can easily spoof the sender.

You can't modify the 'from' field unless you have access to the server commands for SMTP. This requires an open email relay or server access. The server access you can buy and get SMTP abilities with it. Then send emails using the low level commands. The RFP for SMTP as mentioned above. But this procedure will not affect the actual headers. If you know how to find them and read them you can still find the source. Real spoofing uses an open server or a server you own (that is a spoofer). Or if you have root.

Or you can just change the FROM settings in your mail program (Outlook Express, etc.)

If you look at the headers that are posted for Vlad emails, you'll often see they use a SOCKS proxy to hide their real location. It's a pretty common practice these days.
