Hello there! Here are the steps:

Finding IP address in Gmail

  • Log into your Gmail account with your username and password.
  • Open the mail.
  • To display the email headers,
    • Click on the inverted triangle beside Reply. Select Show Orginal.
  • You may copy the headers and use my IP address detection script to ease the process. Or if you want to manually find the IP address, proceed to 5.
  • Look for Received: from followed by the IP address between square brackets [ ].

    Received: from [69.138.30.1] by web31804.mail.mud.yahoo.com

  • If you find more than one Received: from patterns, select the last one.

  • Track the IP address of the sender

Please give me a 5-star rating
