wrong email address

By Eminent87 ·
Hi,

I have been receiving these emails (mostly spams) that are not directed to me. The email address is wrong and my email address is nowhere in the email itself. I've also checked the email header and no sign of my address.

The funny thing is, it's different emails all the time with both different sender and different recipient. Does anybody know how this could be done? What can I do to resolve this issue?

Your address is not found because it is sent via (BCC) - Blind Carbon copy...

If you view the full e-mail header, you can find the sender's i.p. address.

There is a chance that the email is forged. You can attempt to decipher where the email came from by right clicking on an email in question and selecting Options from the menu. The internet header will be in the lower section of the window that appears. If you need help deciphering the header go here:

Forgot to mention, after you decipher where the email came from you can contact the isp that the person subscribes to and alert them to their activites.
