"From:" header line is generated by the sending application such as Outlook
and can be anything. Usually it has the form of either a single email
address or a user name between double quotes and an email address between
angle brackets. Example: "zayin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>. Somtimes the doible
around the name are missing. You may also encounter some encoding scheme
when accented characters are used.
"Received:" header lines is generated by the SMTP servers traversed by the
message according to the routing rules. Line format has many variations !
btw: Most email client allows you to see the message source. Just have a
look at a few messages you've received.
