    Go on, have a guess
    Well, you can't do anything about a forged header, but you can probably tell if it has been forged by looking at the received: header records and seeing if they ring true. Unfortunately, only the last (first in the header) received: record can actually be trusted implicitly as its the one the receiving server of the email puts on.
