Hi James, I have question about computer serial number or brand and model. My computer stolen by some one but I am able to proof. I am suspicious from a person. This person is sending me emails by using my computer. I know my computer serial number. Can I proof that emails that I received sent by using my stolen computer?  
My question in other words. When we send email to someone, computer serial number (or computer brand name or bios data etc.) is going to receiver with email message.  
If yes how can I get serial number from a email header. 
Thank you so much for your time and help.

The computer name can sometimes be found in the header depending on what email software is being used. To my knowledge, serial numbers are not sent in the email header. Your best option is to call the police, provide the serial number to them along with proof of purchase and then ask that they confirm with the person who you think stole your laptop.
