Microsoft outlook - send email as other user RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello there

    my friend called me yesterday and told me that he can send emails that will show that they were sent from any email account

    so i asked he to try to send as me using my email account and it worked. this is all done through outlook and it is very scaring. why is this allowed by outlook and how can anyone identify that the email was not send from the owner of the account

    for example my email address is yiannis@gmail.com

    he was able to send a message to my business account using yiannis@gmail.com saying hello

    please also bear in mind that he is computer illiterate

    thank you
