    Users location from details in internet header

    Is there anyway to find the location of a user from there details in the internet header within an email they have sent me?
    i.e. using the IP address or other such details?

    If using OUTLOOK, right the message and select "Options", you will see the route getting to you.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Outlook Express is basically the same.
    Right click the email message>properties>details.

    And just for the curiosity of it, since I don't use either, when you do that does it tell you the LOCATION of the IP address or simply the IP address?

    Depends on what you mean by the LOCATION, I suppose.
    Here is a copy of a message details I received from my friends at Verizon, with my address Xd out.

    Most of it doesn't much to me but I suppose you could search the originating IP number?
    Is it worth it? Who knows?

    Re: Users location from details in internet header

    OK. I thought you Outlook fanatics were getting something from the program(s) that I don't get in Thunderbird, but that's NOT the case. That's a message header the same as I see if I check one in Thunderbird. The detective work is still up to YOU to do a "WHOIS" on an IP address to see if it tells you anything. The hard part, with all the routing and forwarding, is determining WHICH of the several IP addresses in there is worth a <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0>. AND, after you do all that analysis and WHOIS digging, the most you're gonna learn is the owner of a block of IP addresses, usually an ISP or somebody big like that. Good luck to the OP on a worthless mission...

    Not reliably. And certainly not any person who wishes to hide from you!

    That is, anyone that knows How to Send an Anonymous Email Message via a remailer, such as SendAnonymousMail <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
