You can't find out from that, the only useful information there is the '217.12.10.78' which is the IP address of yahoo's mail server.

best you can tell is it was sent via Yahoo mail

if you've got the header of the email, why can't you see the senders email address?

the 217.12.10.78 is the receivers (bluetigermobiles) email IP (yahoo), not the senders

you'll not be able to find out exactly who it came from, you can find out what ISP it came from, but the ISP will not give you the user details.

The email says to for my husband to ring them! Bu ti have no way of knowing who they are!! What is the point in the email if you can't tell who it is from?
I don't want to put the whole header on here as it contains my email address and i seem to get enough spam as it is. thanks for all your help.

is the number a landline or mobile?

what address shows up when you press 'reply' ?

why don't you ring them? with your number withheld of course.

Y'know, there's a really easy way to find out who an email's from. D'you see the button with "Reply" on it?

Thankyou babbabooey. Someone who fits my description of "Clever computer people".
Not to worry. I am sure it is just yet another piece of junk email!!

'call me' but no number and no reply email address?

I say its either Interpol or MI5, have you seen the film 'true lies'? :wink:

Think its spam I copy and pasted it into google and it came up with quite a few results, that other people had recieved

If it looks like a scam, sounds like a scam, then it probably is a scam.

If you don't know who sent it, then the last thing you should do is click any links within or ring any numbers.

Maybe its a coded message from his mistress.

like 143 ?

Sounds like a scam but the person doing it has forgotten to include the phone number. My guess is another, similar message will be sent in a few days, with the number included this time.

why cant you just ignore it if its somethin/someone important they will contact again preferably by phone
