Thanks for your question psebo.

The answer is not as simple as the question. If you do something illegal, gmail can be subpenaed to provide the IP of any given email.

As far as the header of the email:

if you use a browser to login, compose and send the email, your IP will not be in the header.

if you use a client such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird to send mail from gmail, your true IP WILL be in the header.
