Everybody can fake any email address, it's as easy as configuring the FROM parameter of the mail client. What you can do is to analyze the headers of the mail, where you will see from which IP the mail come from.

If the user used Kerio as the SMTP server, you can also watch into the log files.

Faked email addresses have been a big problem for our clients and indeed for our own domains as well.

How to solve that problem

Create proper SPF record at your DNS server in case you need help use following links to verify it.

We may complain about Microsoft whatsoever. They provide precise information on how too and by the way most issues with rejected email from hotmail and other stiff email provider will be solved too. I had some issues lately. senderid/wizard/

Setup Kerio Connect to check SPF records via Admin area
[Configuration | Content Filter | Spam Filter]
Enable SPF you may select other settings and define excluded IP addresses

Apply your settings and Kerio Connect is checking every mail against SPF record

To increase Spam blocking and better information that is trying to attack your server you may enable {Spam Repellent} and increase delay to 25 second.

Additionally you may enable Caller ID to eliminate those not getting caught by other checks.

Having all those settings in place your spam attack should drop drastically. By the way, that is our best sales pitch selling Kerio Connect.

Our own experience since implementing that rule setting is just awesome. We had hosted exchange accounts and suffered getting swamped with faked emails daily.

Ever since our security logs shows huge amount of faked delivery attempts that have been blocked. We have happy users now without spams like send from rcpt user<_at_>

Good and bad is you can only send emails from servers you have defined within SPF record.

Integrating email account with other mail provider force you to add their mail server to your SPF record. No good idea either.

Hope it was helpfully to you guys
