Email Header Analyzer

Check any email header and find the IP Address & location of the sender.

Analyzing an email header to trace the sender's address is a valuable tool for investigating malicious messages, such as phishing attacks. This method is effective for headers extracted from any email client, including Gmail and Outlook.

To uncover the IP address and location of an email sender, you can analyze the email's header by following these steps:

  1. Access the Header: Open the email and find the option to view the full header. This is usually under "More," "Options," or a similar menu, and may be labeled "View Full Header" or "Show Original."

  2. Find the IP Address: In the header, look for lines starting with "Received: from." The sender's IP address is typically in the last "Received: from" line, enclosed in square brackets (e.g., []).

  3. Get the Location: Use an IP lookup tool to enter the IP address and obtain the sender's location details, such as city and country.

Note: The accuracy of location data may vary, and some senders may mask their IP address. The IP address could also belong to the sender's email server, not their personal device.
