Email Tracing

  recap 15:02 04 Apr 2007

I would like to find the sender of certain emails, the software I have found so far only shows where the ISP or server is based. Is there any software that can show the location of the sender?

If you have Outlook Express with the Preview Pane Disabled (and for security reasons this should be permanent), by right clicking on the e-mail listing you can then inspect its Properties.

These include the sender etc and you also have an opportunity to read the message without compromising security.

You can then Cancel as required and Delete (if you wish) by using the Tool bar's Delete button.

Thanks Stuartli, I can do this, but I am really after finding the general geographical location -say Newcastle or Manchester - of the sender and not just their email address. I can do a trace of the ip address, but again this does not give the General geographic location.

Thanks Stuartli, your first link will help me a great deal. I downloaded whereisip but it does what the ones I have used in the past.
