    Finding someones IP addy from email sent to me, Yahoo/Gmail


    I copied the "raw text" but all I can get from it is Yahoo's in-beween IP location i.e. some town Callifornia. I know the aprox. area of the state there in so I know it's not CA.Example; Received-SPF: pass (domain of yahoo.com designates 66.163.191.149 as permitted sender) is this like a filter that Yahoo provides to prevent IP address lookup?I'm getting a few harrasing emails from this person and I just wanted to scare him into thinking I can locate him if he keeps being a jerk.Is there a more effecient/effective way to know more about him from info. within his emails.?

    :)

    My hotmail is acting up on a sync.

    Yes and it doing the same in the email addy on it. Instead of my Hotmail addy, the addy flips to yahoo addy but still shows the email for Hotmail. I even tested it to see if it can be change to say the Hotmail addy but won't let me change that in setting.
    So I'm stuck with the yahoo email address (addy) as my Hotmail addy. Any way to fix that? please?

  3. E75 Sent Email Missing

    The sent items folder has disappeared from my POP3 email account on my E75. Where will I find my lost emails?



    This is not an Exchange account or a gmail/yahoo type account.

    You might want to try an effective spam filter, which would mean you never see those emails again.

    The most you can get from an email header is the machine it originated on. In the case of Yahoo/Gmail webmail that would be the server that they had logged onto to compose and send it.

    It should show in the headers the IP that they logged into the email server

    Surely that's only true if the mail was sent from a local mail app using POP or SMTP? I see no such IP in the headers of mail composed with a browser via the webmail interface.

    That does not sound like a great idea. Cyber-bullying on his side is one thing, but if you send an email like: "I am coming to get you". That is a threat and the full penalty of law applies accordingly.

    Spoofing an ip address from *anywhere* happens. Spammers hide their true location by using an ip address from some really far away places.

    Same thing for phone marketeers, get a lot of calls identified as being in the same area code as my phones but turns out that is a spoof, could be from anywhere.

    If they use an online webmaill it still shows their ip not the webmail ip there is a tool to check it for you Trace Email Address Source

    Tried that. For an email from a googlemail address who I know uses online webmail it says: X-Originating-IP: [74.125.82.50]

    A tracert identifies that as the Google server: mail-wm0-f50.google.com [74.125.82.50]

    I know for certain Gmail takes precautions in protecting user privacy among their email services by masking IP addresses and only displaying Google proxy email addresses in their header, as you may have discovered.

    I will perform a test to determine if Yahoo also performs the same amount of privacy measures tomorrow.

    It does...

    X-Originating-IP: [77.238.189.195]
    UNKNOWN-77-238-189-X.yahoo.com [77.238.189.195]

    Finding an IP address from an email header is often difficult, particularly with large email providers, and may prove ultimately futile. You can be sure the email provider won't tell you anything.

    But even if the IP could be obtained it is likely to be less than useful. IP addresses are typically dynamically assigned and may have changed since the email was sent. It may currently be in use by an unrelated third party. Or it might be in use by a public Internet access point, such as anywhere that offers free Wi-Fi.

    Even if the IP address is current and correct there is next to nothing you can do with it. The most you could learn is their ISP and general geographic location (city). The ISP won't tell you anything and the geographic area may be seriously wrong. I once tried one of the free IP locator services with my own IP address. The location was off by about 1500 KM, and in the wrong country. Worse examples are known.

    If the situation is sufficiently serious contact local police. Otherwise leave it be. There is nothing you can do yourself. An attempt could be dangerous or get you in legal trouble.
