Finding out location from gmail adress

IP Address Questions and AnswersCategory: Trace An EmailFinding out location from gmail adress
IoanaU asked 3 years ago

I have a question regarding the IP tracing. I know that it is possible to trace the IP from an email, but what if you don't have access to that email that was sent and you only know the sender address ID like [email protected]. Is then possible to find out the last, let's say, 10 IP used in sending emails? Since you don't know if there were anymore mail sent.
To be more exact, I suspect person A used person's B address to send person C an email, but you don't have access to any of the emails, neither B or C, even though you need to find out if A really used B's email.
Is it possible, please tell me?

If you only know the senders email address, there's no way to tie that to an IP address. However, you can go to Google and enter the email address and see what other things might pop up like social media profiles, etc.

Also, if the sender used the gmail web interface to send the email, the only IP that will show is going to be an IP assigned to google and not to the user sending the email. However, if they sent the email from an email client like Outlook AND you can get the email header, then you may be able to grab and IP address.
