Hi

Was just wondering, if it is possible to trace the IP or email id of the original sender of a forwarded mail, where the emaid id of original sender is deleted by the forwarder.

Let me put it this way, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. sends to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., def forwards to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. deletes traces of abc and def's email ids and forwards to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

In other words can This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. somehow know that who sent mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I hope this is clear, couldn't put in more simple way :-)

Any possibility for such tracing?

Regards

Gainil

I'm fairly sure it's not possible to trace forwarded e-mail details. The sender's details are visible, depending upon the e-mail client, but not those of previous sender's in a chain. The only information which *may* be visible are e-mail addresses to whom previous messages had been sent, but not the full e-mail headers

Not possible as far as I know, even the last sender/forwarder in the chain can forge his own email address. However, the IP of the last sender can be USUALLY traced from the message headers.
