Thanks for your question williamsinger.

I moved your question to it's own thread. When you ask a question in someone elses thread, that's called hijacking a thread.

I also edited out the email address in your post for privacy.

The IP address you included is an internal address and will be of no help at all. All you really have is the email address. Without more info, there is no way to even offer an idea of where the email is from.

The domain in the header, cressida.telkomsa.net, appears to be a mail server belonging to an ISP.

You can block the domain using a desktop firewall, also never respond to such emails.
