*How to track an email address*

What email provider do you use?
To find the IP address of a received email you're curious about, open the email and look for the header details. How you find that email's header depends on the email program you use. Do you use Gmail or Yahoo? Hotmail or Outlook?

For example, if you're a Gmail user, here are the steps you'd take:

Open the message you want to view
Click the down arrow next to the "Reply" link
Select "Show Original" to open a new window with the full headers
Note: We are in the process of compiling instructions from a variety of popular webmail services and email applications. In the meantime, if you have a question about your email provider, please post it in the Email Tracing Forum.

Open the email you want to trace and find its header
Copy the header, then paste it into the Trace Email Analyzer below
Press the "Get Source" button
Scroll down below the box for the Trace Email results!
You should know that in some instances people send emails with false or "forged" headers, which are common in spam and unwanted or even malicious e-mail. Our Trace Email tool does not and cannot detect forged e-mail. That's why that person forged the header to begin with!
