    Hi guys
    Yesterday i was watching NATIONAL REPORTER on STAR NEWS.On the bulletin there was a report on a Guy who sent email to Narendra Modi,Gujrat's CM,in abusive language and also threatning him. The email was received by Modi on 24th Dec. Now the police claims that they have caught down the sender of email.
    My Question to you is:

    Q1)Is it really possible to track address of a person by knowing his ip(got the ip frm email)???
    Maybe the ISP provider have given the address to the police........

    Q2)What if someone uses an Dynamic IP??Will it still be possible to track address?

    Q3)What if the sender sends the email through a cyber cafe?The police will end up in finding the address of Cyber cafe.......but not the person. The police will never know who was sitting at that perticular time(if Cafe doesn't keep record,which they dont).

    Poor fellow. If he had idead about this things,he would have taken precaution.

    Re: To track an address from an email!!!!Is it POSSIBLE?????

    1 - Yes. But only if the sender was dumb and didn't try to keep his anonymity.

    2- Yes. Your ISP does have a record of dyn-IP-to-Account-information. This information is not given out easily, but with pressure from judicial body, you can get the account information. Most isps also provide the phone line for the customer, so more information can be extracted in that case.

    3 - If the sender sent from a cyber cafe, the chances are reduced, but it is not fool proof.

    A fool could use his isp's mail service to send the email, visit the same cafe or cafes in his locality (stake-out operation), or the cafe owner can id him in some way. And we are not talking about a month later. Emails can be fast.

    Y, u can cofig ur mail account like indiatimes to send the mail to the recipient after a certain number of days, think it allows 30 days time lag.


    A really dumb guy if he sent it from personal sys or made the mistake of sending the mail from a cc he frequently visits.

    Yes, you will be anonymous if you take those precautions. Hide Ip will work very well. But proxies may not work as some web based services, atleast google, may not allow you to connect if you use an anonymous proxy.

    ^ Why? Email headers don't carry version information or anything.

    Yeah it is possible. Many ppl have been caught in such cases. In case of cyber cafe the chances as said is reduced greatly and thats why gov is recommending all cyber cafes to have a log of ppl using the internet.

    ^All anonymous remailers are good. But I think mixmaster is the best around town if u want protection from even the military. AFAIK, remailers are truly anonymous, but most of them do keep some blacklist or do some sort of filtereing before sending the message to prevent abusers and spammers.
    But not all organizations may allow mails from remailers due to potential for abuse.

    You can see advanced headers for any email. There is an option in each client and in each email-account provider.

    However, these are of no use today as "forged mails" have started to come in.
    Here is an example of a mail that i got from somebody claiming to have my passwords and had a attachment along.
    Code:
    X-Apparently-To:	 [email]yrana2002@yahoo.com[/email] via 66.163.179.189; Sat,                  14 Jan 2006 01:21:39 -0800
    X-YahooFilteredBulk:	xxxxxxxxx
    X-Originating-IP:	[not displayed]
    Return-Path:	<abuse@gov.us>
    Authentication-Results:	mta245.mail.mud.yahoo.com from=gov.us; domainkeys=neutral (no sig)
    Received:	from 219.65.9.124 (EHLO yahoo.com) (219.65.9.124) by mta245.mail.mud.yahoo.com with SMTP; Sat, 14 Jan 2006 01:21:39 -0800
    From:	[email]abuse@gov.us[/email]  
    To:	[email]xxx@yahoo.com[/email]
    Subject:	Internet Provider Abuse
    Date:	Sat, 14 Jan 2006 14:51:22 +0530
    MIME-Version:	1.0
    Content-Type:	multipart/mixed; boundary="----=_NextPart_000_0016----=_NextPart_000_0016"
    X-Priority:	3
    X-MSMail-Priority:	Normal
    Content-Length:	30488 
    You see what he must have done.
    Now if i report this to anybody, its abuse@gov.us responsible :roll:

    So, it aint easy now. If i check for WHois, i get address of ISP. :roll:
