Spam and phishing attempts use email spoofing to fool people into thinking a message came from someone or something they know or can trust. The sender forges email headers in spoofing attacks so that client software shows the false sender address, which most users believe at face value.

By deceiving the recipient into believing the email and its sender, email spoofing can dramatically boost the effectiveness of phishing and other email-based cyber assaults. While removing faked emails is the only action required, they represent a cybersecurity concern that must be addressed.

Incoming communications with faked sender addresses are filtered using spoof message detection. Messages that spoof internal or external domains can be detected by the service. Internal domain spoofing messages are sent from fake addresses that look to be from users within your company.

The purpose of spoofing is to persuade consumers that the email is from someone they know or can trust, which is usually a colleague, vendor, or brand. The attacker takes advantage of that trust by asking the victim to give information or do some other action.
