Guys,

Is there anyway to fake the referrer, meaning, is it possible to show the referrer originating from email, instead of a website?

Plz clarify.

Unless the user clicks on a link from within a webmail application, there will be no referrer.

It depends completely on the mail service. But yes, if many simply have a blank referer then just blank the referer with a double meta refresh. Forging the referer to a domain/page you do not own is not possible. (Without low-level packet control of their computer.)
