1. Save the e-mail in all its entirety.  Make sure ALL headers are saved.
2. perform header traceback as far as possible ensuring that the e-mail
address is not spoofed.  If it is traceback to proper ISP.
3.  Once this is performed take it to the users local/county PD and have
them subpoena the ISP for the user records.
4.  If you provide me with a geographic location of the user I will help you
find a contact there.

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?
