I  have this little "hacker" problem . This little low level " hacker " been getting access to some of my friends g mail acc , and i say " low level " cos i'm a total noob and i'm sure i know a few bits more than him . Any ways i been trying to get his ip and i manage to get an ip off his msn but when ever i do an ip tracker search , it always comes up as yahoo.host some thing in cali i think . i'm sure that's not his ip ( well i don't think it is ) but i just cant seem to get his correct ip . even if he was on a proxy it would show up as somewhere other than the yahoo thing right ? .
 
i just want to find a way to get his ip so i can match it to some of the other messages he sent on other account so i can at least verify that it's the same person .
 
i believe it's the same person because of his grammar and miss spelling of the same words in many of the other messages on other accs . i just can't prove its the same person .
 
any help or advise ?

Hi,

this should help: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/45938?hl=en

Google stores and displays the IPs of the last logins into each account.

I'm not sure if the IP of an email's snder is even recorded by gmail BUT IF IT IS, the best place to look will be to go to the message you want to trace and choose the "show original" option to bring up it's full details and path of sending. https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22454?hl=en

Hi,

the sender IP is not usually revealed. You get the IP of the mail server, not necessarily the one from the person sending it.

If he has access to your friends gmail account, he is logging into it and his IP should be recorded as one of the logged in values. I still think that's your best shot.

I just tried that myself for gmail.  The result nowhere showed the expected, "X-originating-IP", which is what is supposed to show the internet address of the location person who sent a received message.

Hi,

cafejose are you the same person as keronkkumar?

I just tried that myself for gmail. The result nowhere showed the expected, "X-originating-IP", which is what is supposed to show the internet address of the location person who sent a received message.

Most public mail server's do not reveal the IP, therefore you will not find the x-originating-ip in every mail.

keronkkumar, the link is in the post that cafejose just posted. You can click on the button above to open the page.

Why do you ask that?  I am someone else other than keronkkumar.

Hi,

because it happens that people forget/remember their old login and then switch account and I didn't know if you are in the same position as him or not. What I suggested doesn't have anything to do with the emails sent. keronkkumar said the accounts are compromised and the hacker has access to them. I suggested he checked who has logged into the account, rather than to look who sent emails. The x-originating-ip would not be there.

GMAIL, for example, does not show the x-originating-ip header when you send a mail, neither does hotmail or, probably, most of the big email providers.

I became aware of x-originating-ip from using Yahoo and AOL, and did not realize that other email services operate according to other data standards.  I tried a search or something... and wanted to try to understand "Headers".  

 

 

The forgetting of personal login information is understandable.  A registered member should make a personal written record for safe-keeping.   I am a separate person from keronkkumar.

---Note also, that password managers can be a problem in case someone forgets either username, password, or both; or even the address of the website.  Computer problem making you lose software or installed programs might have meant losing the software which held all the login credentials, so a written record would be needed, for later, after either restoring the computer or setting up new computer and getting back onto the internet.--------------off-topic.   This was supposed to be about getting IP from gmail.

Here is an explanation of headers by gmail:
https://support.google.com/mail/answer/29436?hl=en

x-originating-ip is not a mandatory field, therefore it is not sent by everyone.
