Just because an email shows up in your inbox labeled Bill.Smith@somehost.com, doesn’t mean that Bill actually had anything to do with it. Read on as we explore how to dig in and see where a suspicious email actually came from.

This reminds me of a situation at work where we discovered an IP making a huge number of requests to our server, I did some investigation and emailed their service provider to ban them for spam. The service provider promptly emailed back with a screenshot of the headers of the email I had just sent...it was the same IP.

Any idea where I can read the whole e-mail? I like reading stuff I know is a scam.

I would add host -t TXT domain.com. The sending email server may not be on the MX list but may be part of the SPF records.
