Is there a way to change the IP address

Is there a way to change your IP address or make it look like it is coming from somewhere else. Say if somebody sent me an e-mail, and I trace it and it comes up as it is regisiterd through X ISP, is there a way to change that and send the email so when somebody traces it, it will say, it comes from Y ISP.

Yes, it is possible. Spammers do it all the time.

You can use an open relay, if you can find one.

I did this back in school when open relays were common, but they are less common now. I'm sure there are hacker/spammer tools to scan for and use open relays, but I've never looked into it. If you google the term open relay you will also see that there are anti-spam programs that block email from known open relay servers.
