Well, do you think the From: header is spoofed?

The first problem as Hanumizzle stated was spoofed headers.

Examine  the message headers and that will be about as much
info. that will be easily available to you.

Alot of mail clients will show the headers.

i checked the email address and it got me know where.  so who ever it is is hiding.  i did Google tracers and found some  but i didn't want to pay for it unless i had to pluss they run on windows.  i guess i could always wine it  but don't know how it will work.

thanks mike
