    How to find and trace email headers

    These are the instructions on how to read the email headers, once you have the email header and the originating IP you can find the source location. However this does not work in all the cases, there are times when the originating IP from the email will be the Gmail or Yahoo servers in California, getting the origination IP from an email depends of the program the person used to send it, it works 50% of the time.

    To get the email headers find the instructions here:

    http://whatismyipaddress.com/find-headers

    Apple Mail 2.x (Mac)

    Select the message you want to view the headers of.
    Press SHIFT-COMMAND-H to toggle full headers for the message. (Alternatively you can click VIEW in the menu bar, click MESSAGE, click LONG HEADERS.
    Microsoft Outlook 2003 (Win)

    Select the message you want to view the headers of.
    Right click the mouse, select OPTIONS
    Headers will be displayed within the "Internet Headers" area of a pop-up window.
    Mozilla Thunderbird 2.x (Win)

    Select the message you want to view the headers of.
    Press CTRL-U (or click VIEW from the menu bar, select MESSAGE SOURCE)
    Headers will be displayed in a new window.
    Google Mail (GMail)

    Open the message you want to view the headers of.
    Click the down arrow next to the "Reply" link.
    Select "Show Original" to open a new window with the full headers
    Windows Live Hotmail

    (Full Version) This does not work with Safari on Mac OS X
    Right click on the message. (From the list of emails)
    Select "View Source"
    A new window with the full headers and HTML source of the email will open
    Yahoo Mail

    "New" Version Right click on the message.
    Select "View Full Headers"
    A new window with the full headers will open
    Yahoo Mail

    "Classic" Version Click on the message.
    Click "Full Headers" on the bottom right of the screen
    Once you have the header you copy and paste it in this page

    http://www.iptrackeronline.com/email...r-analysis.php

    It will analyze the header and tell you the origination IP
