Hi Admin

could you please check who the person is who created the mail.
If there is any other info you need, please let me know
Kind Regards

Mev Pretorius,

Vra as dadelik vir jou man Adrian om my uit te los!! Hy is n getroude man
en maak allerhande voorstelle. Ek het hom al gewaarsku, maar hy luister
nie! So jammer dat ek jou e-mail, maar dit kan nie so aangaan nie, ek gaan
n interdik teen hom kry.
Ek se jou want ek sou ook wou weet as my man rondloop!

Unfortunately you cannot determine the name/address/phone of an email sender without a court order. In many cases you are able to find the sender's IP address, which will get you some general information. In the case of gmail the sender's IP address is not included.

It won't be easy to find out who sent the message, but I suggest you ask your husband and show him the email.

If you don't want to do that you could try telling the person to report your husband to the police. I suspect that will shut them up.
