Sorry I'm a bit rusty on this these days (used to do this all the time but it's been a while) but how do I find the originating (ie, location of an) IP address for a gmail address, sent to Hotmail? I've found the headers in the Hotmail message, but they all point to Google's servers.

 

(If this is the wrong forum for this post, please feel free to move).

You can't.

 

The originating IP may be in the original Received header. In the case of Web-based mail, there may be additional proprietary headers with this information, or nothing at all. The Received headers are added by the receiving server, so the IPs logged can be trusted to be correct as far back as the servers can be trusted. Beyond that, they could be completely fake and cannot be relied on.
