How can I trace an abusive e-mail?

I have received an abusive e-mail from an address unknown to me, but it is obviously written by someone I know.

Is there any way I can trace it from the "view source" info?

If I can't, could the police?

It was me, I'm sorry. :(








Unless it involves serious danger, not sure if police will show any interest. Could you not guess from the content who it could be, a reaction to what you may have done?

If it is generally abusive, reply to them saying you have forwarded their email to internet police :P, that might scare them off for the future.

why not send a email to your email provider to help you sort the matter out or find out how to go about the steps of tracing through your email provider

unfortunately there are people in the world that are either complete saddos or.... a bit mental, doing the ANON thing livens up their pathetic life......you should feel bad for them

pity them and move on ;)

Or you could just confront the person you have your suspicions of....their reaction will tell you all you need to know....

or wait till you have proof or somone else has pointed you in the right direction...

well funny when people get caught out and then try and squirm/lie/threaten to report you to get their way out of it....proper jokes

the problem was that a copy was sent to my employer.

the e-mail contained false allegations about me, but with some correct background info (hence it's someone I know).

Not always anonymous info are false info (generally speaking, not about you).


If you are certain that they are false allegations (i'm sure you are), can you not prove/explain to your employer and clear your name.

Could be personal?

I have no problem with my employer, who knows the allegations are false.

But both the employer and I would like to know who sent it.

So, back to original question - can I trace the e-mail?

(BTW - two comments reported).

If it's not causing you any problems and you just want to know who it is, do you really think that's a good use of police time?

#21

^^^ This, if you ask them don't say lies like 'Yahoo told me it was you who sent the email about me' :)


EDIT: Tracing IP and the person legally using police/court is lot of hassle.

agree with this - happened on here on one or two occasions - anonymous abuse via the old rep system.

Hope you get it sorted out OP - not nice.

don't dislike someone for their actions, consider instead the situation that causes it.

Instead of posting, I believe someone is having a strop and just reporting posts instead.

PS. This is REALLY stupid.

Think some people are trying to look clever by calling names, talking in cryptic etc. As for comments like yours disappearing.....

At a guess OP could be sensitive. I find the comments vanishing funny though. :D
