Trace IP address from Emails




In todays post i will Explain  how one can trace IP address from emails Headers. If you deal with Computer Security and Penetration testing , you must be knowing the importance on IP address . To perform any kind of penetration testing or hacking you first need to know the IP address . Here I am going to discuss how to obtain IP address from Gmail  and Yahoo.

Gmail :
Open the mail you have received from your friend and click on the down arrow to the
 right of the reply button. Now click on Show Original.




You will get to see the complete headers of the mail from which you have to find 

the IP from which this mail   was sent. Mostly in case of a static IP, the IP is shown as in the figure.


Yahoo:
Open the mail and click more option, click on 'View Full headers'
 Again over here you will get to see the IP in the same format as in gmail, shown above.
