Trace IP address

Post by deens123 »

If an e-mail IP address comes from a mail server would the mail still have originated from the country shown on the IP finder?

Without a court order your options are limited.

You can try to get a person to click on a link that will record their IP address. See https://whatismyipaddress.com/get-ip

Hi buddy, you can't be sure. It can vary!
