Email Header

Post by SourceCode » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:32 am

Hi Everyone,
So I wanted to trace what country an email was sent to me from. I have the entire email header from the Hotmail account which was used to send me the email, but I'm not sure what I have to consolidate the header down to, to know where email came from.

Can anyone help?

You should post the entire header, but erase your email address and any others you want hide first.

The header may not show you want you want, though. The best you may be able to do is see what hotmail server was used when the person sent you the message. Headers are read from the bottom up so you may be able to see something helpful.
