    if ur using outlook / outlook express you've got to view the message header, in OE you right click the message in ur inbox and click proerties, then the details tab

    u'll see something like this

    Received: from ([XX.XX.XXX.XX]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.5.1877.757.75);

    Received: from YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY by with HTTP;

    I *think* the IP screened by XXX.XXX is yours

    YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY is the IP of the person who sent it

    some1 put me right if I&#39;m wrong, but this would check out for the message i coppied it from

    == Edit : missed off an address ==

    I know hotmail have an option that lets you show the header information but im not sure if yahoo do.

    Have a look through the options and see if it is available.
