Take a look at the relevant part of the message headers from the fake rick: Received: from dbmail-mx1.orcon.net.nz (loadbalancer2.orcon.net.nz [18.104.22.168]) by turing.freelists.org (Avenir Technologies Mail Multiplex) with ESMTP id 6B27F3455EE And now that same part of a message received from the real one: Received: from smtp101.sbc.mail.mud.yahoo.com (smtp101.sbc.mail.mud.yahoo.com [22.214.171.124]) by turing.freelists.org (Avenir Technologies Mail Multiplex) with SMTP id 77839344D21 Looking further down the line, you see this, which proves authenticity, at least to the SBCGlobal SMTP servers: Received: from unknown (HELO Black3GHZ) (rickharmon@firstname.lastname@example.org with login) by smtp101.sbc.mail.mud.yahoo.com with SMTP; 1 Jun 2006 02:40:13 -0000 Dead giveaway!
