Trace a hotmail address

Post by Findingthistroll » Tue Jun 05, 2018 1:58 am

Hello. I need to trace this email address please. I only have a hard copy of the email, which doesn't help as I don't know the IP address.

How do I go about finding the person behind this account please? This person has been sending abusive messages.

There's not a lot we can learn from the EMAIL address, the IP address is often of more value in locating the source of an email.

The WhatIsMyIpAddress website has a page for helping you trace an email to its source:
