No gmail does not reveal the machine IP, I believe hushmail and a few others
do not as well.
Yahoo and hotmail do reveal the IP.

      Am I overlooking something?  Shouldn't looking at extended header of
      the email likely reveal that information?  If you click on the
      downwards-pointing arrow button next to the Reply button on the far
      right of the email window, a drop-down menu appears which has "Show
      Original" that shows the original email in raw form with all the
      header information.
