Is there any way to tell where an email address is redirected to.
For example you receive and email from someone at somedomain.com
and the headers seem to say that it came from joe.bloggs at somelittleisp.com

Can anyone think of a way of interrogating the DNS system or something to 
find out if the somelittleisp.com address is where your email will end up 
when you reply to the somedomain.com address.

It is dead easy to forge email addresses and I want to check something in 
something I was sent.
