    An organisation I'm in received an unsolicitied email from a media company which looks like a circular, asking the user to check out their videos etc.

    The strange thing is, the email's "To" field contains a name that has not been publicly associated with the organisation - in fact, the user it is addressed to doesn't use the internet, and hasn't got an email address, and never has had one.

    My question is, how would this work? Did the sender have to fill out the name manually into the "To" field? Or is there any other explanation?

    The email address that received the email is hushmail.
