Its illegal to impersonate someone else You wouldnt be impersonating yourself technically


Quite honestly unless you do some major costly damage to anyone you arent going to get in trouble

Default re: spoofing email

How is this possible? I telneted to the smtp server and all I got was some weird strings and "unknown command". How do I connect using my gmail account name?

No one is going to tell you how to do that here, if someone did it will be erased by a mod. You already have everything you need to figure this out yourself:
http://64.233.161.104/

Almost forgot,
Code:
man telnet

Clever

Anyway just do as x0r515t said and google "telnet to email server" and add in POP3 or SMTP somewhere if you can't find it exactly. You WILL come up with the answers you need

Default re: telnet

Telnet is a program that lets you connect to other computers. It was mainly used by Unix to gain access to your computer from home and to log into your work computer. You would enter a username and a password and once authenicated, you received a shell or command prompt. Telnet is very popular when combined with netcat (a remote shell listener). You could try running a google search...

Default re: starttls

I got the same message. I think that that is a secure web connection...cause my norton popped up and said "You are connecting to a secure email connection."
