My experience, which is mostly on windows boxes, is that while you can spoof
the FROM you can not spoof the SENDER; which is automatically be tacked on
if you don't code it in, or if you do code it in, will cause the mail call
to fail if you attempt to spoof it. That said, I'm sure someone else on the
list knows a way around this.

If you spoof a FROM address in a bulk email to prevent all those
undeliverables from bad email addresses (in PHP), how does the system know
who REALLY sent the email addresses? Alternately is there a way to take all
these bad emails and feed it into a script to remove the bad email addresses
from the MYSQL table?
