    Hello, I'd like to know if somone can send an email using my IP# and making it look like it came from my IP#? Is this possible? I feel like this is a major invasion of someones life.

    Yes it can happen although not often used.Most of the time what happens is you get a virus of some sort such as beagle or bagel which turns your pc into a spamming machine to make a long story short. I hope this answers your question.

    What if someone is using your IP# to send someone some not so nice emails and making it appear that they are from you? Can this happen?
