I create a new message and send it using one email account (POP3) in Outlook

2007. I get an undeliverable message that shows the sending address (which

should be the address I sent the message from) is a totally different address

- also POP3.

The content of the Undeliverable email is strange as well (this is the total

message):

----------------------------------Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: RE: Our Vacation!

Sent: 1/10/2010 10:09 AM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

----------------------------------example:

address I send the messaage from: myemail@mydomain.com

address that is reported as the sending address in the undeliverable

message: anotheremail@mydomain.com

Obviously the NDR (non-delivery report) e-mail had to get sent back to you

for you to see it. So does this NDR specify an account that you don't own

(i.e., you haven't a clue as to whose account it belongs) or is it one of

your other accounts?

From your example, supposedly myemail@mydomain.com is the account through

which you sent the e-mail (regardless of what you claimed was your e-mail in

the From or Reply-To headers). You sent the e-mail through that account.

You then get an NDR that says the original but undeliverable e-mail had

anotheremail@mydomain.com shown as the sender. Okay, but that does not tell

us that anotheremail@mydomain.com is YOUR account. If you had said:

sent from: myemail@mydomain.com

NDR reports sender as: myotheremail@mydomain.com

then we would know myotheremail@mydomain.com was your e-mail address rather

than someotherschmuck@mydomain.com. Since you don't even give the domain,

we don't know if you are using a common e-mail provider, like Hotmail,

Yahoo, or your ISP, or if you actually are running your own mail server on

your host (or a webhosted one) that is in your registered domain.

- You sent the e-mail through myemail@mydomain.com. That's your account or

perhaps one of several at mydomain.com. We don't know.

- You never identified how many accounts are defined within Outlook.

- We don't know if anotheremail@mydomain.com is an account owned by you.

- We don't know if anotheremail@mydomain.com is another account you defined

within Outlook.

- We can't be sure that myemail@mydomain.com and anotheremail@mydomain.com

aren't actually the same account. There are "family" accounts where there

exist just ONE mailbox but has multiple aliases to it. There might be a

dozen different e-mail addresses but they all point to the same mailbox.

- We don't even get a full copy of the NDR e-mail because you didn't include

the headers and snipped off the body. Just munge out the usernames in the

e-mail addresses (leave the domains unless it happens to be your registered

domain and you think you need to hide that, too). Hard to analyze a partial

exhibit.
