Tutorial: Find the IP Address of sender in Gmail.

Yes, you read it right. You can do it. This is the theory behind it; When you receive an email, the email comes with important information called the header information. The header information has entry of the IP address of the sender. Here is what you need to do to uncover this hidden information.

  1. Using your id/password, login to Gmail.
  2. Open the mail for which you wish to find the IP of the sender.
  3. Click on the inverted triangle placed just next to Reply. Click on Show Original
  4. You now need to look for Received:from followed by the IP within square brackets [ ] e.g. Received: from ge3.i-nonymous.com (ge3.i-nonymous.com [])
  5. Also importantly, there are times when you might find multiple Received: from entries, in that case, please select the last one as the valid choice.

Similarly, IP Address of the sender can be tracked in Yahoo Mail and Hotmail as well. Will discuss about it in my coming posts.

P.S: This trick wont work on mails sent from Gmail. [Thanks to BGM for pointing to this]
