The "From:" address is not a reliable guide to the true source of an email because it is easily disguised by someone who wants to divert attention away from the real sender. The real source of an email is more easily tracked down by examining the email headers which are included in the behind-the-scenes stuff that's not normally shown on screen when you read an email.

The team at WhatIsMyIpAddress have prepared a web page that can guide you through the process of tracing an email to its source. It can be found here: https://whatismyipaddress.com/trace-email

One thing to keep in mind is that some providers, such as Gmail, do not always include sufficient information to trace email beyond their own email system. A court order (or similar) might be needed in those circumstances.
