Find IP address of the sender in Hotmail account
  

The email comes with headers that carry important information that can tell from where the email was sent and possibly who sent it.
For that, you would need to find the IP address of the sender.

How to find the IP address of the sender in your Hotmail account ?

Re: Find IP address of the sender in Hotmail account

The tutorial below can help you to find the IP address of the sender. Note that this will not work if the sender uses anonymous proxy servers.

Finding IP address in Hotmail:

1. Log into your Hotmail account with your username and password.

2. Click on the Mail tab on the top.

3. Open the mail.

4. If you do not see the headers above the mail message, your headers are not displayed. To display the headers,
  • Click on Options on the top-right corner
  • In the Mail Options page, click on Mail Display Settings
  • In Message Headers, make sure Advanced option is checked
  • Click on Ok button
  • Go back to the mails and open that mail.

5. If you find a header with X-Originating-IP: followed by an IP address, that is the senderís IP addressHotmail headers : name ,In this case the IP address of the sender is [68.34.60.59]. Jump to step 9.

6. If you find a header with Received: from followed by a Gmail proxy like thisHotmail headers : nameLook for Received: from followed by IP address within square brackets[].In this case, the IP address of the sender is [69.140.7.58]. Jump to step 9.

7. Or else if you have headers like thisHotmail headers : nameLook for Received: from followed by IP address within square brackets[].In this case, the IP address of the sender is [61.83.145.129] (Spam mail). Jump to step 9.

9. Track the IP address of the sender
