Re: Distressing, possibly life threatening emails from free accounts (yahoo, hotmail

Was the sender email address spoofed?  I'm sure you
might've already tried this, but you could just
examain the email headers, to reveal the sender's IP
address.  You would then report it to Hotmail (or
whatever) and/or the sender's ISP...
Please kindly correct me if I have misunderstood the
question :-).

Thank you for your time.

One of our users has received questionable and

emails from a yahoo account that was created
recently.  They have approached
us to find out as much as we can pertaining to the
person sending it.

Of course, we are not YAHOO so we cannot determine
anything about the mail
other than the content.

How can we find out who sent this?
