You name is probably in the BCC field.

Subject: [exchangelist] spam question(OT)

http://www.MSExchange.org/

not really exchange related. i was wondering how spammers are able to
forge the TO: header of an email so that you get the email even though
its not addressed to you.

like if i'm joe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx, i get an email to my inbox addressed
only to bob@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx or bob@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx?
is it that the envelope headers are addessed to me but the email TO:
headers are changed?

Is this this the same thing as when you get spam and the TO: headers say
"undisclosed recipients"?

thanks
