If you are using a proxy server that is the IP address that would show up in the headers (if the email provider includes the sender's IP address). Someone can send you an HTML email with an image that, if you are not using a proxy server when reading your email, may disclose your real IP address. It's best to not correspond with people that you do not want to know your IP address, or who you are.
