How is this possible ?

    clicking the arrow next to it, and selecting 'show original' shows the header. Its a great way to find out what is really going on – Journeyman Geek May 15 '16 at 12:42
  • The from address is clearly fake. If it's sent by hotmail.com, then there would be a filed called "signed by: hotmail.com". – LinuxBabe May 30 '18 at 8:46

Your address was set as a BCC (Blind Carbon Copy).
