    Is it GEOGRAPHICALLY possible to trace as to where(on this Planet) did an email come from?
    Somebody once told me, that if the email client is Outlook, one can view the header of the email and then try to figure out as to WHERE that mail came from?
    Howz that done? Do we resolve SMTP addresses and then try to ping the Mail Server to gather greater detail about its location??? But I could be seated here in India...and the email Server could be elsewhere, right.
    Am in a fix!, need help!!

    end uses may not and should not be allowed to trace source.
    but administrators of e-mail servers can access logs and backtrack using IP address.
    and if u use Public Proxy, it is very difficult to trace down.

    Only hotmail i guess... displays the source of the e-mail in the header
    of the mail.
    This feature is disabled by default. You can enable it through
    the options/settings page once u log in....

    I'm not very confident about what type of information they reveal in the
    header ... but yes.... they do give the ip address of the source...

    once u get the ip address .. u can trace the geographical location
    by using VisualRoute (damn cool !!) software.

    If one was a mistake, please close the other one..
