Assuming that the author of the E-mails has not deliberately disguised the address, you should be able to use the E-mail full header to give you that information.

While I am not an expert, E-mail full headers are read from bottom (sender) to top (receiver) with all the stages in between.

For reference:

An easier to understand article:

Hope this helps.
