If the emails are truly life threatening or if the person "feels that
their life is in danger" it is against the law.  It is called aggravated
menacing and you should defiantly get your local law enforcement
officers involved.  THIS IS A CRIME.  We aren't talking about "spam" or
stupid stuff like that.  This person can be imprisoned.

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

One of our users has received questionable and possibly life threatening
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?
