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.
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.
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.
