    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.?

    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.

    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]
