spoofing display name

Post by scngan » Sat Oct 31, 2020 4:31 am

hello, do you guys have any idea how to prevent the spoof of the display name (not domain name) in mailenable ?

Example :
From: "ABC.com" <calvin@baddomain.com>
To: <abc@abc.com>

In the above example, the sender spoof the display name of abc.com user and send the email from another domain (baddomain.com) to the user in the abc.com. Abc.com is hosted in mailenable.

Ian, you linked to a post I made and nothing in that link solves the problem and its actually a different problem then the one I was showing.

The issue they are referencing is the spammers/scammers are changing the "Name" not the "Address" of the sender so it shows something like this:

From: SpoofedEmail <senderemail>

instead of,

From: SenderName <senderemail>

In the newer outlook email clients its very hard to see that this is a spoofed email unless you are technically inclined and we have many clients that are not. So this presents a large issue for them.
