E-mail can appear to be from anyone, that's one of the reasons why spam is such a big
problem. As such, when it gets sent as an offline message, it'll appear to be from your Live

You can look through the headers in Live Mail by right-clicking on the e-mail in the list and
choosing View Source to confirm where it came from.
