Question Can an email address be masked to make it appear like it's come from another one?

Is this possible?

I received an email from a bank confirming that payment had been made into my account. Now it turns out that the payment wasn't made. The bank says that that email address isn't one of theirs e.g. [email]xxx@ybank.com[/email]. However, when I look at the message source it definately states that the "From" is @ybank.com.

The @ybank.com is definately their address and when I hit reply it comes up with [email]xxx@ybank.com[/email] as the return address, so what I need to know is this

Is there a programme that can be used to disguise an email as coming from a different address than it actually is?
