Who's It From?

By CST ·
In my pop e-mail account, I received a message [apparently] from a friend of mine. When I opened it and hit REPLY, the header of his message of course dropped down below where my reply text is to go. The strange thing is that I noticed the FROM: field contained his e-mail address (as expected) but the TO: field contained NOT my e-mail address, but rather his. This made me wonder whether he actually sent that mail or not. How would this be done to have appeared that way? If he typed in his own e-mail address, it would be sent back to him, not to me.

Puzzled???

Sounds like a virus has hit his mailbox and automatically fowards email to any contacts or addresses he has ,so this may be a replication of the email virus

Run your anti-virus software and then contact your friend to see if the possibility of him having sent you the email

Could also be that he sent the message to a number of people via BCC, and put himself in the to line: some email applications won't let you send a message without a valid TO: address
