How Email Tracing Works

We trace the location of where an email is sent from by examining the email header information from most popular email programs, such as Microsoft Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, and AOL. Each email you receive comes with headers. In addition, the email headers contain a lot of information, including:

  • Routing of the message
  • Originating Internet Protocol Address
  • Date/Timestamp Information
  • Other Information

Not all electronic messages will allow you to track them back to the originating point. How the email messages are sent determines whether or not it is traceable. Most important, the email headers don’t contain any personal information. Normally the results of the trace with show you the origination IP and the computer name that sent the email. The initiating IP can be looked up to determine from where the message was sent and sometimes the ISP.

Beware of Email Phishing

Fraudulent emails sent from what appears to be a trustworthy entity in an attempt to obtain your personal information, passwords and credit card details.

What You Get

Our Email Trace service provides you with the origination IP and the computer name that sent the email. Please note, some emails such as from Gmail, Aol, or Yahoo will only trace back the email server IP address. In addition, no personal information such as a person’s name, street name or phone number are ever included.
