I know that its complete off-topic about pfSense but I thought because pfSense is about security maybe someone could shed some light on this weird E-mails redirection or not even sure what to call it.
So I have a domain Emails with the internet service provider in Colombia South America Called UNE. The issue was when checked the source code of one of the Emails I received though outlook it shows another email that I never added.
User email@example.com received the email but when i check the source code on outlook it shows this other person called firstname.lastname@example.org. So then I called UNE (the email provider) And told this and they checked to see if it was adding copy to another recipient and nothing was there. I also checked the computer for malware and virus and nothing. I was wondering if someone could help me out or where should I start looking?
Also Patri@hotmail is a known person so it should not be spam but what I dont understand is where is this email@example.com. coming from?
Here is the source code
where are the headers of the email? This is kind of useless.. Really need to see the HEADERS!!!
Hi johnpoz thank you so much for the reply sorry forgot to add the headers does this help?
Not sure where it comes from or how. Maybe email spoofing?
Thank you :)

This is the primary address contact record for your email server's SenderID configuration. This doesn't mean that this person sent you the email. It means that questions about your mail server's SenderID config should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (which is likely bogus). Ignore it, or find your mail server's config and change it. It's just a text field and can be blank.
Hi KOM thank you for the reply
So this is the order on how the e-mail been sent
I guess the Real question is why on the source code appears email@example.com.

We need to see the headers, not some mail client screenshots.
I don't see anything in the headers for that email. So you can put anything you want in a body of a message.. Who sent the original message?
Source was created by
name=Generator content="Microsoft Word 15
in the source there is clearly a link that has different name on it than in the link
Thanks for the reply johnpoz
So I got another Email with headers directly from outlook and the source code
What I also found out was interesting all the E-mails that get sent to this @domain.com for some reason has
Even if firstname.lastname@example.org never gets mentioned on the email
Im considering to change E-mail providers :(
http://pastebin.com/6dsQisU9 –--- New source code on outlook
http://pastebin.com/8FSwmaH5 ------- New header
