Hi whyme34,
it's a piece of cake. :P What you have to do is to look for the followings clues:
1) X-Originating-IP. In your case: X-Originating-IP: [74.125.82.44] or
2) Received. Ignore 127.0.0.1 look for the the following IP (if any). In your case 74.125.82.44. Now insert this IP to the field then hit the button "Additional IP details"...
Have fun with the Sherlock-Holmes-Game :D

@ Voodoo,

Thank you for replying, but unfortunately when I look for that ip address it just gives me mountain view as the location..and mountain view us where google Corp. is located so I'm not getting the specific address where this person is. I mean I don't want her specific address at least just the city where she/he is. And like I said before this is literally taking my life away, is there any other way i could find out more info about this emal? Any suggestions? I know this is not right to say but I wish I could know how to hack into his pc because I know that my ex has something to do with this : (

Oh that...I perused the header of "him" (curijb@yahoo.com) and found: "Received: from [10.24.239.97] (curijb@166.205.136.163 with xymcookie)".
Also, it began at this private address 10.24.239.97 (hence you get NO information about this IP) via the ISP Service Provider Corporation in Anaheim and ended up on your email-account.
I mean I don't want her specific address at least just the city where she/he is.
...Only Gmail (for erykahlove@gmail.com) or Yahoo (curijb@yahoo.com) can reveal his/her true IP then you can get his/her City name.
I'm sorry. My voodoo magic ends up here :(

You can only go so far with what you learn from the email headers, regardless of which email provider you're dealing with.

I gather from what I've read in this forum that gmail manages to do a better job of keeping the sender's IP address private than some other email providers. Whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing depends on your perspective.

If you use public webmail, you will not be able to guess anything. Report your abuse to Yahoo/Gmail.
